More people are working from home than ever before. It’s no surprise that home offices are having their time in the sun! With many professionals spending a significant amount of their working week at home, it begs the question — should we be paying more attention to our home offices and investing in fitted shelves, wardrobes and furniture?
At GPM Designs, we feel that bespoke, fitted home offices may well be the way forward for remote working. Here’s why…
A chance to create your ideal set-up
With a home office, you can say goodbye to drawless desks, constant hotdesking, and awkward table heights. However, it makes sense to maximise the chance to customise your space.
Now you have the opportunity to make your dream office, why waste it? A bespoke office will help you enjoy your work time and feel more inclined to use your study rather than the rest of the house (which we all know is a recipe for procrastination).
Making the most of available space
If you’re someone with lots of disorganised tech, filing cabinets, and freestanding bookshelves, chances are, you don’t have the most space-effective home working space.
A bespoke office can be designed to make the most of your available space, giving all of your equipment its own place yet preventing it from cluttering up your room. For example, GPM Designs, we can design a workstation that keeps your hardware out of sight, your printer tucked away in a cupboard, and your wiring hidden in cavities.
Accommodate other family members
Ever find yourself fighting over the best desk space with your family?
If you have a partner or child who also works from home, a fitted home office could give you each your own dedicated workstation — either within the same room (as we can maximise the space) or in separate areas.
By using wallspace for extra storage, crafting space-effective corner desks, and designing cabinets to fit around unique room shapes, a fitted home office can turn cluttered workrooms into fit-for-purpose multi-person offices.
Space that’s tailored to your profession
Standard offices are relatively one-size-fits-all when it comes to shape, space, and room for equipment. However, not everyone’s needs are the same. An architect is going to have different desk requirements to a software engineer.
If you have specific requirements because of your profession, you can ask a bespoke office fitter to include those design features you’ve always wanted. Even if you still commute to your company office half the week, you’ll always feel equipped for a productive workday at home.
Customising the rest of your home
Working from home comes with lots of perks. But when you’re spending more time there, it’s important to enjoy the rest of your property as well as your home office. Exploring built-in shelving, fitted wardrobes and bespoke bedroom furniture can be a great way to put your own stamp on your home.
