There comes a point when the kitchen table just no longer cuts it as a productive workspace, writes Amy Norbury
If the past 12 months have taught us anything it’s the importance of being able to separate our work and home lives, even when the setting is the same for everything from Zoom meetings with clients to family movie nights.
It’s so much harder to switch out of office mode if our living rooms are cluttered with work paraphernalia, so a dedicated home office is rapidly becoming top of the interiors wish list.
A well-organised desk, comfortable chair and plenty of storage options are a must for any home office. You need to create a space which inspires productivity.
Transforming a spare bedroom or living room into a dedicated workspace means you can shut the door on your duties when the work day is done. A separate garden building – if space and budget allows – means you can still technically leave the house to go to work.
