Sarah Hammill meets three local experts who can provide top tips for making your home office a dream to work in.

Finding Flooring

Good quality flooring is an important investment in an office space. It can be difficult to decide the ideal flooring for your home office; hard wood has an appeal of style and elegance and is easy to clean, while carpets offer better insulation during the winter and are comfier to walk on.Jamie Brown, director of Simply Floors and Walls, says: ‘The final finishing touch to any room in the house is the floor. It can make or break a room and could lead to a costly decorating disaster, so choosing a high quality store, with surfaces including natural stone, is imperative. If you take a piece or swatch of your current colour scheme into our store we can find the ideal flooring for you, along with a free measuring service.

Characteristic Chairs

When selecting a home office chair, bear in mind the amount of time spent seated during the working day. Key aspects to take into account when choosing a chair should be lumber support, comfort and, when bringing clients or customers back to your office, style. Soft and comfortable, yet compact and elegant, a tub chair is an easy and practical chair for your work space.

Jenny Primrose, a designer at Amor Interiors, says: ‘Whether you have a modern home office or a cosy country study, a comfortable tub chair will fit into both design settings, simply by selecting your colour, texture and pattern to suit the space.’

Workstation Wellbeing

The right work station can be the difference between a productive or disorganised day. When purchasing a home office work station, bear in mind size constraints and whether your choice can suit the demands of your job and be durable enough for daily use.

The Deluxe Workstation has been designed not only as a functional working space, but closes to reveal another stunning Neptune piece of furniture.
