More and more of us are making use of an area at home to incorporate a study. It could be needed for working from home or for doing home admin tasks, either way clever use of space is likely to be key.
Many of us do not have the luxury of a dedicated room that we can simply turn into a study, so it is likely that creativity and thoughtful planning are likely to be needed. There is no reason why a home office space cannot be created in virtually any area of your home.
If you are trying to incorporate your home office space into a small zone within your home, try to make the best use of vertical space by building shelving and other storage solutions. Also be mindful of hazards in small spaces, and ensure that you include cable management and adequate lighting in your plans.
Don’t be shy of introducing colour and/or patterns in the space behind your desk as an interesting wallpaper or picture can be a well placed distraction and can give the perception of space. If you simply don’t like wallpaper, then you could use a pin board, pictures, photographs, or a combination of these to create a bespoke backdrop to your study area.
Make the best of use of the space you have wherever it is in the house; the kitchen is often the hub of a family home, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be the the best in terms of distractions. A popular trend these days is a garden room, providing a dedicated study space; they provide peace and quiet away from the main house, but perhaps with the benefit of watching the children play in the garden after school.
