Choosing your working-from-home spot

First and foremost, select a location away from household noise and any potential distractions. It might be a corner of your bedroom or a spare room. Pick an area with natural light and a window that allows fresh air. If this isn’t possible, try adding in greenery such as a lush green artificial pot plant or a vase of flowers to bring in that fresh feeling.

Your desk and chair

Your desk and chair

Avoid working from the couch or your bed at all costs. Take the time to set up a comfortable desk and chair (your back will thank you). Your desk doesn’t have to be huge; a smaller space can be much easier to keep neat and tidy. Make sure your chair is adjustable so you can set the right height to avoid hunching. To up the comfort factor, add a back cushion and have a warm throw handy.

Personal touches will make your home office area are an enjoyable place to be. Set the stage with a touch of greenery, a vase, a diffuser and a tray to hold stationery. Lighting is important, even if you have the perfect sunny spot. A floor lamp or a table lamp will keep your space well lit. Add in a rug, wall art or a mirror to give the illusion of space. If you have a free corner, pop in a comfy accent chair and a bookcase to create a cosy nook away from your desk.

Create a bright and airy space

A bright and airy space will make your home office feel less like a workspace and more like a personal sanctuary. Think simple seating styles, patterned rugs, contemporary desks and touches of greenery.

Warmth with a modern touch

Colour is key to creating a warm home office, so make sure you stick to dark, earthy, rich tones to achieve this look. Start with your desk, the focal point of your office. Once the stage has been set, add in modern textures: think various types of wood, leather and industrial metal accents.

Reading Nook

Floor cushions are a super versatile way to transform a space. OUR TIP? Lean into the extended story times. Why not get your little ones to write their own story and read it to you! Or for any budding actors/actresses they can even act it out.
