More and more of us are working from home nowadays. Whether we’re self-employed, remote working, doing our bit to save the planet or simply improving our work-life balance, it can be a calming and productive way to work – as long as we have all the right gear.
Most professional offices come well stocked with all the equipment you need to do your job, with functional, ergonomic furniture and with everything to hand. However, with a home office, there’s always a temptation to make do with things you already own, whether that’s to save money, through lack of space or just because you’re eager to get going. You’ll soon discover why a custom-made home office is a far superior option, and it doesn’t have to eat into your expenses too much. Enter Dunelm, your office organiser.
Let’s start with the desktop. If you collect or send out a lot of paperwork, keeping it all in order is vital, so head over to our organisers and caddies and stationery sections to give yourself a professional inbox and outbox. They’ll take pride of place on your desktop, showing you exactly what you need to get done on a given day.
Office drawers, cabinets and cupboards General storage is another must when it comes to a functional office space. We’ve got plenty of styles of drawers, cabinets and cupboards to choose from. When setting up a home office, there’s usually a compromise between homeliness and practicality, but with Dunelm, you don’t have to choose one or the other – everything is designed to be beautiful and hard-working. On the subject of looking good, another office essential is the touch of decoration that reminds you what it is you’re working for, so have a look at our wall shelves – you can put a book on there if you want to keep up appearances.
Keeping your office tidy
Do bins count as office storage? We think so, because the alternative to waste being in the bin is bits and pieces spreading themselves all over the desktop and office space, and it’s impossible to work like that. Whether you choose a businesslike silver mesh bin or go for something a little more domestic is up to you and how you want your office to feel, but whatever style of home office you want to create, you’ll find everything you need at Dunelm.
