Creating a home office … what to consider

Creating a home office … what to consider

With the advent of technology and the ever-increasing ways of being able to work from any location it is not surprising that more and more people are creating a working space at home alongside the office.

So, how do you go about it?

You could settle for setting up on a coffee table and sofa in front of the TV in the living room but you will probably, on reflection, decide on a more professional approach and having that designated spot in the house where you can work undisturbed – especially as the work may take place after hours when you have spouses or children at home.

Depending on the layout of your home you may ultimately opt for converting a bedroom. You will want it to be serviceable and attractive, you don’t want to face working in a room for hours on end which is drab and dreary.

Being one of the smallest rooms in the house doesn’t mean you have to compromise on taste or equipment.

Here at Chrisbeon we have more than 40 years experience of helping people decide what sort of office they want and how best to furnish it. We have a dedicated team that can design and install your office – whatever the size.

The bedroom option means a need to maximise the space to the full but if you are running your business with just a laptop and mobile phone then you may only need some storage space to keep files, documents, invoices and so on.

It may mean bespoke sizing but that is no problem for us: we can create 3D plans to ensure there is a perfect fit for every room or space.

Any desk and units you have installed need to be thought out for ease of access and comfort and allow you to work freely and effectively.

You will also need a chair and that needs to be selected carefully so it suits you and isn’t going to spark pains in the joints, back and neck.

Lighting is another important consideration when planning the office and it is vitally important to have sufficient light to work by and not something that will lead to strained eyesight and headaches.

There are a wide variety of desks available to choose from to fit any sized office and you’ll want one that is the right shape and slots seamlessly into the available space.

Working from home can be a great benefit to busy business owners and there are a range of options to consider – our staff are here to help. Why not give us a call on 01952 292606 oir pop in to our Telford or Shrewsbury Showrooms?
