Your home office is a place of work and productivity, so it needs to be practical and comfortable with plenty of storage. But it can also be a sanctuary of style – the ideal place to relax, concentrate and contemplate.
Whether you work from home on a full or part time basis or just need a place to get away from distractions and take care of some of life’s admin tasks, the home office needs to tick several practical boxes. Furniture needs to be comfortable and ergonomically designed to offer maximum support when needed. Our home office desks, chairs and storage are all manufactured using the highest quality materials for long lasting practicality, but without compromising on style and good looks. Space saving designs, a choice of colours and an emphasis on functional comfort mean we have everything you need to make the perfect home office.
Just because it’s an office, it doesn’t mean it can’t be stylish. In fact, putting some thought into your home office design will help to make it an inviting and inspiring place to work. Think about your working habits, what you like and don’t like, and style your office space around these. Do you like to have everything to hand or is a simple and uncluttered workspace better for you? With available storage and office furniture in a choice of design styles, you can create your ideal working environment.
Storage options for home offices include drawers, cupboards, shelving units and cabinets. Try and incorporate ample storage to help you keep organised and on top of all your work and admin. Don’t overlook accessories such as lighting. And comfort features such as cushions and soft furnishings.
Don’t underestimate the importance of your office chair. If you work from home, then you may be spending a lot of your time there, so you need to make sure you are adequately supported. An ergonomic working area, or even a standing desk might also be a good idea to help improve posture.
Try to keep the colour scheme calming and relaxing. Ideally you want your office space to be a place where you can keep a clear head. That said, this is your working environment, so go with a design that best suits your most creative and distraction-free moods.
The beauty of the home office is that it doesn’t need to be huge. Even a small room, a space under the stairs or in a nook in the house can be big enough to house a desk, some storage and adequate lighting. Make sure the space is comfortable for working over longer periods and ideally can shut you off from other distractions in the home.
