If you answered mostly A then you’re likely to be working in one of your main living spaces. Could you zone off your living room using a standing shelf or screen? That way you can mentally log off at the end of your working day. A great chair for day-to-day admin that will blend in beautifully with a range of décor schemes is our Rene. This fancy office chair comes in a gorgeous Faux Brown Leather and Rose Pink with soft velvet and a gold finish.
If you answered mostly B then you need inspirational décor to get those creative juices flowing. Choose a vibrant colour palette and offset with a large piece of wall art to enhance the space. The perfect chair to support your posture is one of our stunning GTForce Gaming Chairs, which can be height adjusted, and include recline, swivel, rock and tilt functions. Achieving a work-life balance at home can be tricky if you’re chained to your desk. So, make sure you get plenty of natural light, ideally from a side-on window to prevent monitor glare.
If you answered mostly C then you’re likely to have a dedicated space for your office, either within the home, a garden cabin or a converted garage. This is a space for contemplative thinking and calculations, so the colour scheme needs to evoke a cool, calm and collected vibe. Mint green wall cabinets are bang on trend and will help you maximise storage space. Consider how your lighting affects the space and the ambience it creates. An ideal chair is the practical Cecil in Light Blue or the Joseph in Grey Linen.
If you answered mostly D then you’re likely to be working while perched on a breakfast bar or at a dining table. A fold-down secretary desk could be a good alternative for laptop work in smaller spaces. Use a mural wallpaper in a nook or on an adjacent wall for visual appeal. Luxurious velvet office chairs such as the Frances or Emile are stylish and comfy additions for dining areas being used as home offices. Find discreet locations to hideaway laptops and stationery items, so you can get closure at the end of your working day.
