A home office needs to offer both comfort, storage and beauty. Obviously the most important part of most home offices is a desk, the place where you will be working from for a number of hours everyday. We have outlined the key pieces that your home office needs and what to look out for.
Your desk needs to offer comfortable space for your laptop or computer, with the modern world using computers for everyday tasks. Restored furniture offers sturdy desk solutions that are made from hardwood such as Oak or Mahogany, with drawers or cupboards for paperwork, desk items and files. Twinned with the space for a modern desk chair, or even a classic captains chair, a restored desk can be the perfect option for you working from home.
Desks vary in size from a large double cupboard style desk to a small writing desk that folds up. Depending on the size of your room in your home there is always an option for you to choose from.
For extra storage in your home office then why not consider buying a complimenting bookcase? Coming in a variety of heights and widths with a number of different shelf options a bookcase is ideal to store files, business supplies as well as books and ornaments. Restored bookcases tend to be open units with a large display area but some are concealed and are more of a display cabinet with glass fronts and cupboard storage included.
Not as popular as they once were (with the adoption of computers over hand written documents) writing bureaus are now an amazing alternative for larger home office desks. Writing bureaus make a fantastic storage solution as they have a fold away, or roll-top, closable desk section which when not being used can be shut, hiding your desk away from visitors to your home. This is a perfect solution for smaller homes where the desk needs to sit in the corner of a living room or dining room, or is only used on a part-time basis.
