How to design your home office

As working from home becomes the new normal for some of us, it’s looking more likely we will be settled into our new way of life for the foreseeable future. Even as things slowly get back to normal it is likely that more employers will see the benefits of more flexible working practices and allow people to work from home for at least some of the time.

We believe now might be the time to look in to incorporating a comfortable home office somewhere in your house. As interior designers we are here to assist with any home office renovation works, this could include adapting a spare room with bespoke fitted furniture or transforming an outdoor workshop or garage. You might be thinking where do I start? The beauty of hiring a residential interior designer is that we approach the design as a whole, considering all elements such as existing style of the property and our client’s personal tastes.

If space is a challenging aspect in the home, we have experience in making the most out of tight areas, with flexible design solutions such as a hidden desk or concealed work space in the kitchen. Working with an Interior Design can help you maximise every square meter of the space through innovative design and creative techniques. We will make sure we incorporate great storage facilities for all your requirements, but also a stylish, comfortable and inspiring space which is unique to you.

If you’re lucky enough to have a larger space to incorporate a new home office, we understand large spaces can feel overwhelming. We’re specialists in bespoke fitted furniture, knowing how to create beautiful but practical design. An office space should work seamlessly, down to everything having it’s own space- to stationery we use and the printer we want to hide away. We want to create warm and inviting environments to inspire and comfort the user. If your new work space is separate from your home such as garden outhouse, incorporating small kitchenette or WC can be a smart idea to help separate home and work.

Lastly, we offer guidance on everything from fantastic task lighting to ergonomic chairs for better posture. Over the years we have built up close relationships with many suppliers so know where to go for those important design details. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like to discuss your new home office ideas, we would love to talk all things design and how we can make your dream a reality.
