WHAT OFFICE STORAGE OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE AT HABITAT?
At Habitat, we know how important it is to find the right office storage, effortlessly enabling you to put everything in the right place. When working at home, this can be particularly important. Maybe you have your own home office, maybe a corner of the dining room with aor maybe your kitchen table is your breakfast-area-cum-study. Whatever your working environment, it helps to have everything in its place. (Imagine the clutter if not.)
Factoring in the many ways one may work at home, we have a wide selection of storage options, each designed to tailor to your needs. If you are lucky enough to have a room all to yourself, then the 9-5 (or 11-5, depending how flexi your routine) will be a whole lot easier with the help of filing cabinets, providing ample space to store those tax returns - whoever decided we should hold records for seven years, clearly didn’t live in a 2 up, 2 down with a family of 4.
too, will work well in serving up extra space to pop books, papers and pens, plus other home office supplies, at the same time as adding to the room’s decor and enhancing its character. Shelving units and cabinets can also offer practical assistance, while also serving to make a feature of excess space. Last but not least, the desk shouldn’t be overlooked in terms of space to tidy away bits and bobs. On the contrary, desk storage is the perfect way to go if you tend to need to keep a lot of paperwork to hand.
WHAT MATERIALS AND COLOURS IS HABITAT OFFICE STORAGE FURNITURE AVAILABLE IN?
The decor of your home office is of optimum importance - after all, it has to be inviting and inspiring if you’re going to head to it every day, sit down for several hours and get the job done. At home there is no one to raise an eyebrow if you procrastinate during every tea break, so creating a space you genuinely want to sit in is of utmost importance. To achieve this, you can’t just buy any old piece of storage - it has to fit your interior design.Habitat’s collection includes oak office storage or wooden storage, perfect for those who prefer a classic aesthetic, something a little on the traditional side. That said, chalk paint is a fantastic way to elevate a simple wood surface - one lick of paint, a layer of wax and it’s transformed. For pre-coloured storage, however, we have various pieces in shades of grey and black, with white for the lover of minimalist and red for those who love colour. And why not? If you’re bold in business, your home office might as well reflect this.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU ORDER?
If you do have the room to have a little fun with the aesthetics, then by all means go to town a little, making a feature of your workspace.
To begin with, choose a desk that really makes a statement; a large, beautifully crafted wooden desk always hits the right note, while modern glass designs, perhaps paired with copper legs, bring an undeniable touch of chic.
When it comes to the seating arrangements, fabric or upholstered chairs will have you sitting comfortably, while a chair on wheels is perfect for those who need to fly quickly around the workspace. (Or those with a playful side, something you don’t have to hide in your own home office.)
If you do have to share your work space with another area then you can still accessorise it beautifully, or even add a shelf above the desk itself. This adds character, which is good news for any room in the house. As for the chair and desk you choose, just be careful that neither looks too much like work. Look for pieces that blend in with the rest of your interior styling.
And for those finishing touches? No matter where your office resides, you can’t go wrong with a little bit of light. Whether it’s a discreet wall light, doing its job to highlight the picture above the desk, or a trendythrowing light across your laptop, there’s something about a warm glow that always takes the edge off anything that errs on the side of corporate.
