Working from home is becoming more and more of a reality for many of us. Flexible working hours and less of a need to commute to a central work-space can make perfect sense for plenty of industries and careers. Most of these roles will need some sort of area to work in and deciding how to organise this can be an important task. Thankfully there are a number of ways that can bring out the best of your home space – no matter the size – and provide you with the best place to work from home in. Here at Dotmaison we have a number of designer ideas for home offices. Here are a few that could make your work life and home life run in a coordinated and structured method.
When meeting clients or colleagues in an office environment it’s always a good idea to get the little details right. Something as seemingly innocuous as hanging coats and jackets up can make a big impression. This is where something like the Play Coat Rack by Normann Copenhagen could prove itself to be very useful. As well as being beautifully finished and offering up a delightful ornamental provision, the oak rack also serves as a reliable way to keep coats, hats and scarves neat and tidy. Easy to put up and look after, the rack makes a a practical and pragmatic addition to a home office.
The Magnet Set, Push Pin from New York design house Kate Spade is also designed around the idea of keeping things out of harm’s way. Pictures and notes can be pinned up safely around the office or on a board with ease, and the lovely finish of these gif box presented pins bring a lovely touch of class to the home office. ‘Neat as a pin’ indeed!
Another route to tidiness and organisation is offered by Sagaform’s ingenious Dreamfarm Gripet product. Bringing together a sensible approach to office organisation, the Gripet can secure notes and pictures without pins, glue, tape or magnets. It can do it with gravity and friction, meaning less clutter and more free space. The easy to use system allows easy storage and removal of up to 3mm of paper and can be used anywhere in the home.
The Harri Wire Brass Basket from XL Boom provides ideal storage for magazines, files, paperwork or anything else in need of a space. The stylishly constricted baskets make a great way to de-clutter and keep important papers safe. Hand made and resolutely sleek and strongly constructed, the baskets are available in different colours and sizes in order to truly optimise organisation in a great looking way!
