Office renovation - ideas and inspirations

birch furniture for the IKEA office

This is our third office, the move itself was a "wasted" time in terms of work, so we did not want to risk the renovation for longer breaks.

However, a lot of time has passed and our office still needs to be refreshed.
However, there is a plan - on March 22, 23 and 24 we will "renovate" - in quotation marks, because it sounds very proud, and we only want to refresh the walls, buy additional accessories, etc.

I have always dreamed of white furniture in the office, but unfortunately - I always bought additional pieces of equipment to the ones I already had, which resulted in furniture in the color of imitation birch. So I spent a lot of time on the Internet to find inspiration for offices with birch furniture - unfortunately there are very few of them.
So I switched to looking for interiors with birch furniture in general to get some color inspiration.

Before I started refreshing, I gathered some ideas for a new look for the office.

What do I already have?

Office furniture from Ikea from the EXPEDIT series in the aforementioned birch color:

The boss's desk, my 😉 in the following configuration: 4 × 4 bookcase + perpendicularly attached desk:

3 employee desks in the following configuration:
4 chairs: 1 large (on the left) and 3 smaller with Jysk:

2 armchairs and coffee table:

Storage additions:

Desk accessories: lamps and pen holders:

Gray carpet:

Office plan:




The main colors in the office: pine, white, gray, black

Assumptions: the office is to be feminine, somewhat romantic.
My favorite colors?
pink, violet, gray, I love soft fabrics, glass, silver, flowers - pink peonies are a special feeling for me.
My ideas are as follows:
1. walls:

white color is necessary, I do not want to add an additional color to the walls, I cannot have white furniture, at least let the walls be white 😉 although I do not exclude, for example, one wall in a different color.

My inspirations: &
However, the effect he definitely wants to avoid is this:
2. Furniture
Thanks to the white accessories I have, the pine furniture seems to have a slightly more romantic character, which can be seen in the photos above
3. Additives:
I would like to warm black armchairs with soft and colorful accessories, e.g. cushions in such an atmosphere:
And finally - I love to look at it - it relaxes me incredibly:

Maybe so?


And what ideas do you have for additions?

    Interesting ideas. When it comes to inspiration, it is definitely worth getting them from, for example, nature

    Interesting entry, interiors always inspire changes. I focus on external finishing services, because I can be sure that the renovation will go without complications and stress

    I will need such a dose of inspiration, because I am in the process of arranging my office 😀

    I think that wooden chests and trunks are a very interesting and practical element of the office decor.

    The office is to be primarily a functional work surface. Unfortunately, what looks nice is not always practical. You have to ensure the comfort of employees and customers. Everything must match. That is why fit out realizations are so popular nowadays. Comprehensive renovation is in many cases the only way out.

    I really like this cupboard / chest of drawers with small drawers. It looks very cool, especially if there are cards and drawings hanging above the dresser, just like in the photo. I think I'll use this idea in the hall. I would like Reprotechnika Wrocław, because they have cool paper and attach them with clips on a string. Daughter's drawings will have a place of honor. Thank you for the inspiration 🙂

    Wow! Beautiful inspirations and a good selection of furniture! I was very intrigued by the fact that your office is located somewhere in Gdynia :)) And those "Brides" magazines ... it was a dream come true! Regards!

    I think that "birch" furniture;) can look as good as possible, but necessarily in combination with white, which was proved by the inspirations you inserted. A bit of gray and it will be great!

    I am very interested in what you do, Mrs. Boss, because I haven't read it yet 🙂
