The Home Office Location Conundrum!

Home Office Location Conundrum!

You know you need a home office so next decision is where? In a smaller home you may not have a lot of choice when choosing the home office location.

A dedicated room in the house for your home office may be a luxury but that doesn’t mean you can’t locate your home office within an existing room.

Advantages and Disadvantages to Home Office Location throughout the Home

This White Single Pedestal Desk could double-up as a Guest Bedroom Dressing Table!

Thinking of using a guest bedroom in the house?

Consider how often you need to use the office versus how often you’ll need to use the bedroom! If the office is for occasional use then using a guest bedroom shouldn’t cause any hardship.

White furniture fits into most environments but can work particularly well in a bedroom.

A white single pedestal desk could easily double up as a dressing table when mum drops by for a weekend. This can be an ideal solution for a home office with occasional use. It may not work so well if you often have guests.

Home office in your own bedroom

First drawback being your work is permanently in your sleeping space. A permanent reminder of what you have yet to finish.

If you would prefer your office to go out-of-site temporarily then a hidden office or hideaway computer office furniture is a perfect solution!

Second drawback is if anyone else needs to use the desk or computer. Imagine your neighbour drops by and asks you to print something for them. They have a problem with their own printer. You stroll off to your bedroom and they follow and hey ho you forgot to lift your dirty underwear!

Positioning in a bedroom you regularly use is also important. If you plan to position your home office desk near a bed you may wish to consider narrower desks. The depth of a desk can vary dependent on design. A wider desk may encroach on the room space or walkway round a bed for instance. You also need to consider the office chair you choose. In such cases it is often better to choose an office chair without arms.

Modular Home Office Desks

To create your own unique home office you would start by choosing a base product.

    • Are you looking for a smaller base due to space constraints or a larger base unit?
    • Is a pull-out keyboard important to you? This can be advantageous ergonomically if you plan on using it for a lot of typing.
    • Are you planning on utilising a corner of a room? In which case the corner base unit may suit you better.
    • Perhaps the hideaway or hidden office in a lounge or bedroom would suit you better?
