How to create the best office for productive working from home

During this COVID-19 pandemic, most of our nation’s workforce is now working from home (except our wonderful keyworkers who we are thankful for every day), and most of us have found ourselves creating pop-up offices in the lounges, dining rooms, kitchens and bedrooms of our homes. It’s a tricky situation to be in especially when you have kids at home because of the school closures as well – but they also need a productive space to be home-schooled in.

This unexpected new way of working impacts us all, but Diamond Office Furniture is here to help you create the best office space for productive working, and learning, from home. With our fast-delivery service, we can have you kitted out with the essential office furniture you need to ‘boss it’ from home. We even have a dedicated home office furniture range, and so you can either choose from here or we can work with you with any of our ranges or bespoke options as best suits your needs

No doubt your organisation has given you all the technology you need to carry on working, but we doubt that many have been provided with appropriate chairs and desks to ensure your workstation is fit for purpose and takes care of your posture and wellbeing.

If you are planning on purchasing your own office furniture, whether you are upgrading your current home office space or creating a new pop-up office, we’d like you to consider a few things before you part with your hard-earned cash online. You’re probably going to be spending a lot of time sitting down so investing in a quality chair is paramount; make sure you get the height, seat depth, backrest support, adjustable armrests, lock/recline function, 5-castor base for ease of movement – all right.

Your desk choice will very much depend on the space you have available and the décor of your home. Space-saving corner desks are a popular choice with the added benefit of having all you need in a wraparound style. Standard rectangular desks are also great when you need that extra space for spreading out large format documents and plans or indeed, just loads of paperwork!  If you suffer with back, neck or posture issues, a sit/stand desk may well be the answer for you as sitting down for too long will impact your condition.

Diamond Office Furniture can help you make the right choice when you need to create the best office for productive working from home and home-schooling. We are still offering a personalised and professional remote service, so give us a call today and let’s create a space plan and office furniture recommendation that maximises the effectiveness of your pop-up office.

All our services follow government guidelines to keep everyone safe and healthy.
