Setting up a small home office

Getting back into your normal work routine after a holiday break can be tough. If you work from home occasionally or all of the time, setting your laptop up at the kitchen table might not be cutting it anymore.

Creating a stylish and functional office space that you’ll actually want to spend time in, might be the motivation you need to get your groove back!

Consider the space

Not everybody has the luxury of designating a room in their house to use as a home office. But the good news is, you don’t need to have space on your side in order to set-up a functional office space. If you have a spare wall in your living room, guest bedroom or hallway, consider setting up a small work station here.

Once you know how much space you have to work with, select your desk and office chair.

Our compact Austin desks are both a stylish and affordable option, ideal for small spaces. Available in white and oak, these minimalist designs will fit effortlessly into any style of home.

If you’ve got a larger area to work with, a Macey desk is the perfect choice. This spacious desk includes 3 drawers where you can store your stationery and office supplies.

Jazz up the look of your desk with an abstract ceramic to hold your pens in and a sleek reading lamp.

When you spend a number of hours sitting in front of a computer, it’s important to have an office chair that offers superior durability and comfort.

A Milton Mesh Office Chair is a great option for a small office without compromising on quality and design. The thick padded seat is moulded and contoured to support you while you work.

If you also require a built-in neck rest, go with the Milton Executive Mesh Office Chair instead.

Additional storage options

Setting up a small home office

You may need more storage space in your home office to keep files, electronics or spare stationery.

The Hunter Bookcase Unit is a great choice if you prefer the timber-look. You can also use the exposed shelving to display picture frames or some indoor plants for extra ambience.

If you prefer a shorter, more compact storage unit, the Airlie Sideboard will beautifully hold your excess office items with a contemporary flair.
