The latest Working From Home request and your home office furniture
Installing the right kind of home office furniture to keep you safe
Once more, people in England are being asked to work from home if at all possible as part of new rules to limit the spread of the latest Covid-19 variant, Omicron.
Whilst Boris Johnson states “It’s not a lockdown, it’s Plan B,” the prime minister says that moving to tougher measures was the “proportionate and responsible” thing to do. We managed to save Christmas 2021 and, by the skin of our teeth, New Year celebrations were still allowed to go ahead although with caution. Bigger annual events that would usually draw in large crowds, such as the Trafalgar Square event and Thames Fireworks on New Year’s Eve, were cancelled.
We may have to sit tight a little longer in our home offices until it is deemed safe enough to return to the office. However, working from home and having the right kind of home office furniture is still very important. If you haven’t invested in providing your employees or yourself with a decent workspace, you could be down on productivity and up on sickness.
Here at Diamond Office Furniture, we can provide you with a wide range of home office furniture that looks good and gives the right level of comfort so that you don’t develop any physical discomfort from using a poorly set up workspace. We have traditional and contemporary styles of desks, chairs, bookcases, cabinets and storage units and cupboards. Available from new or second-hand, we have the perfect home office furniture solutions to suit all budgets.
The most important furniture pieces for your home office are definitely going to be your desk and your chair. If you’re spending 8 hours a day (or even more, now that most people are working their commute time), then you need to have the right configuration to help support your spine, neck, legs and wrists and avoid any long-term damage. We can even provide you with height adjustable electric desks to help keep you mobile and more comfortable for longer during the day.
By standing, rather than sitting, at your desk can provide these great benefits:
- Minimising sitting position time which can affect posture
- Improving blood flow to the brain and extremities
- Reducing risk of cramp, deep vein thrombosis and muscle waste
- Burning more calories by working bigger muscle groups
- Creating more motivation and productivity
- Not to mention having healthier and happier employees!
If you are interested in investing in better home office furniture for you or your workforce, or moving to a height adjustable desking system, then contact Diamond Office Furniture today. Our expert team are on hand to help you find the right solution for the space you have in your home.
