Is Working From Home Working For You?
Are you one of the many employees thrust in to working from home during lockdown? Left to set up your workstation in a spin? If so, you may have selected a makeshift spot such as the dining room table or the box room, simply because there was nowhere else obvious to choose. Now that remote working is becoming the new norm, you may be looking to create a more permanent and conducive working environment, which will keep you focused and help maintain your work-home balance. With this in mind, we caught up with the lovely locals at Hartleys Bedroom, to get the low-down on how to make working from home work for you…
“We specialise in designing, crafting and installing fitted furniture for home-studies and bedrooms, and have been successfully doing so for over 40 years” says Hartleys’ Sara Haggas.
“As we all become accustomed to our homes functioning in a certain way, you may not think you have space for a dedicated work area in your home, but one of our experienced designers may spot the perfect location, one you had possibly overlooked.
“For example, a spare room which acts as a storage overflow and sleeps the occasional guest could easily become a multipurpose room. Picture an ergonomically fitted desk and office storage for weekday use and a foldaway bed with built in storage for when a guest bedroom is required. Perhaps you have a loft which is ripe for conversion; fitted furniture is ideal as it will mould itself around beams and sloping ceilings, maximising all space available whilst creating a sleek and seamless look.
“As a result of lockdown, master bedrooms are set to become bigger and harder working, not just to include an en-suite bathroom, but to accommodate a home study area as well. How about incorporating a fitted desk and bespoke shelving into your brand new bedroom design? And if you’re struggling for space, have you thought about utilising the area beneath your stairs, at the far end of the landing, or in an alcove against the wall? Every element of our furniture is made to measure, so every nook and cranny can be optimised for additional functionality.
“Whatever space you have, we will ensure it is designed for maximum comfort and productivity, all tailored to your individual requirements. Clutter is a distraction, so your storage solutions will be built to cater for all your work resources, such as organiser drawers, accessible shelving and filing systems. We offer a wide selection of door styles and finishes too, so you’re guaranteed that your new home working space will be aesthetically pleasing as well
