With the start of the new school year come certain responsibilities, such as homework or maybe even exams. Perhaps you’ll also be returning to work as well.

If you or your children are working from home then creating the right environment is key. A dedicated and well-organised work space can aid productivity, while simultaneously allowing you to step away and switch off once everything is done.

This work area can be as simple as a bespoke desk in a child or teenager’s bedroom, some study space in the eaves or even a dedicated home office.

Wherever it is located, one of the things you’ll want to consider is lighting. A desk light will usually be needed and an LED bulb is ideal for this purpose, being both energy efficient and strong. If working on a computer screen, the wattage in your desk light should be at least the same as your screen, which is usually around 60 watts.

For an adult, the suggested height for a desk is 750mm from the floor, while for children you may want to consider a bespoke design that has been custom made to suit.

Storage is also a crucial aspect of any home office. Shelving and drawers for files and books, as well as for stationary and computer equipment, is vital for keeping your office neat and organised. A popular desk arrangement is to have narrow drawers at the top with file drawers at the bottom.

Whatever your requirements, and however much space is available, we can design your perfect work area. Helping to make both school study and home working to seem more of a pleasure and less of a chore.
