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

narrow desks for small spacesImmediate advantage here is you will have access whenever you need it coupled with peace and tranquility to work!

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.

Hideaway Computer Desk Cabinets

Hideaway Computer Desk Cabinets

Hideaway computer desk cabinets or cupboards are great for keeping all your computer bits and pieces hidden away from sight when not in use. They are also known as hidden home office desks.

The following are two popular hideaway computer desk cabinets from the online store.

1) Aston Oak Hidden Home Office Desk

hideaway computer desk cabinetsThis oak hideaway computer cabinet features a pull out keyboard drawer with two doors concealing plenty of storage space. The left hand door has a removable shelf, ideal for housing your computer tower.

Nearer the centre of the unit there are two drawers. There is a removable shelf beneath the drawers with additional two storage areas. There is a removable shelf providing two storage areas on the right. Ideal for a printer or scanner.

The cabinet features four pre-drilled holes for cable management. This unit is provided pre-assembled. The following customer was very happy with the product although he had some difficulty getting it up narrow stairs! Always best to double check measurements beforehand.

Removal men to the rescue

I was impressed with the honesty of the advert. I was wary of buying a “good” computer desk on-line without a chance to see it first, but the desk is exactly as it appeared in the advert. I was also impressed with the service when I phoned up; relatively easy to speak to a real person who patiently explained that the confirmation e-mail was probably in my junk mail folder(it was) – I suspect it was not the first time she had had this problem. The only difficulty we experienced was in getting the desk up the narrow stairs- had to contact a removal firm eventually. A great piece of furniture.
