Creating a 'Home Office' that you will love

If you work from home, you need to create a working space that not only offers practicality and professionalism, but somewhere you want to work. If you’ve only recently moved from the office interior of a 9 to 5 job to your home, it is very easy to sit on the couch with the laptop on your knee. Or have paperwork all over the kitchen table. However, creating your own dedicated working space offers so many benefits. If you have a spare room that you’re itching to get your hands on but haven’t been able to motivate yourself to do so yet, read the many reasons why having your own space is worth the effort…

An escape from the household – If you work directly from your living room, it is very easy to be distracted by housework that is sitting around you. The washing pile might be in eyeshot, and you notice that the carpet needs a hoover. Having a dedicated office space prevents all of this. Sitting at your desk, you can concentrate on the task in hand without being side-tracked. A perfect desk for this sort of job, is the Elegant Oak Corner Desk Unit. Ideal for utilising tight corners, this hexagonal desk would be equally suitable for a home office or study away from the chores. The desk goes perfectly with Elegant Oak Two-Draw Filing Cabinets from the same range.

Organisation – A dedicated home office space ensures maximum organisation. If you don’t have a set space, your work ends up in multiple places around your home; notebooks and paperwork get lost, and finding anything last minute is a nightmare. An office changes this; your work is in one place and filed away neatly. If a customer or client calls you, there is no rush to find paperwork because you know where it is. An ideal piece of organisation furniture is a filing cupboard, such as our Sophisticated Walnut Filing Cabinet. This piece will smarten your home office space and offers an attractive alternative to standard office filing cabinets. Visual appeal and generous storage define this two-drawer filing cabinet.

Professional space – If you run a business from your home, you may have clients who visit you now and again. If this is the case, a professional work space is essential. It enables your clients to have a dedicated room for you to talk within, and gives your business an expert look and feel. Make sure that you have a spare chair for your client to sit on, such as our pair of Rustic Oak Timber Dining Chairs.
