Looking to set up a home office? Even if you don’t have an additional bedroom which can be converted into a home office, this doesn’t mean you are stuck with sticking a desk and chair in whatever remaining empty spot you can conjure up. You can still create that conducive work environment for your home office.
1. Make use of niches.
As this example demonstrates, all you really need is a few shelves and drawers to help organise your paperwork, files and folders. Choose white furnishings to brighten up your home office space and give the illusion of a bigger space, and match it with darker flooring for contrast.
2. Don’t be afraid to use your living room.
A corner of your living room can still become the space you work in without affecting the living room’s relaxing atmosphere when it’s time to wind down. Carefully chosen furnishings help this office space become part of the overall design, and also lets you hide your work away when you’re done.
Remember, what sets a home office apart from your desk at work (apart from the obvious: location) is that you generally have more freedom to be creative and let your personality shine through in your home office with both functional and decorative elements you choose for yourself.
If you’re worried about getting too comfy in your home office, then pick a different flooring that demarcates your home office from your other living spaces.
Don’t forget to work-proof your home office. In many offices around the globe, castor chairs leave nasty marks on the floor, and coffee gets spilt all over the place. Protect your home office from such ordeals: Floor Xpert’s Luxurious Resilient Flooring (LURF) and laminate floors come with various protective layers. And thanks to their patented Scratch Guard and Stain Guard technology, stains and scratches are as much a thing of the past as the old-time floppy disks in your home office.
What with getting work done and setting time aside to relax at home, you don’t need to be worrying about maintaining your floors. Floor Xpert’s flooring products have features such as anti-static joints, waterproof coatings and sealed flooring surfaces for instance to enable you to clean your office faster than ever.
Since its introduction in Belgium in 1990, Quick-Step has grown to become a globally recognised brand that is a category in its own right, bringing a wide variety of design floors that are visually stunning, technologically advanced and easy to maintain.
