Working from home is becoming increasingly popular, especially with the spread of the internet. If you are planning a home office and want a comfortable and inviting space that is uniquely yours, here are some ideas.
Think carefully about the purpose and layout of your available space. Place the things you will use most often within easy reach. For example, if your work involves using a printer frequently, consider placing the printer close to where you will be sitting.
Workspaces can be fairly small, depending on what type of work you are doing. If you are creating a workspace in the corner of a living room or the end of a hallway and space is limited, go up the wall! Tall, narrow storage can hold a multitude of things. A separate room will allow more freedom in your choice of colour and the size of your office furniture, whereas fitting a workspace into another room means you will have to restrict your décor to the existing one. In this case, consider using a screen to hide the work area when not in use.
A workspace is a place where you need to concentrate, and unwanted noise makes this difficult. If you have a window that looks out onto a street or public space, even double glazing may not solve the noise problem. Plantation shutters offer a stylish solution. When closed, these will not only exclude a lot of sound, but they can also be adjusted to suit the level of light you want in the room. Choose shutters with a robust construction that will not rattle in strong winds.
