How to Use Bespoke Kitchen Design to Create Office Space

Working at home means flexibility, freedom, comfort, and an escape from chatty co-workers who lower your productivity levels. For some employers, the request to work from home might be seen as an opportunity to do less work, to slack off, and to generally not be doing what you're supposed to. For other, more savvy (and more trusting) employers, working from home is a cost saving reward to staff. Staff will feel as if they're getting a perk, and as long as output remains relatively consistent, employers will benefit from the ability to have fewer desks in the office which will mean a smaller space, and ultimately, lower outgoings. Sometimes more work will be produced at home because staff work extra hard to make sure everything is done, and they produce more when they're feeling happy and appreciated.

The most important thing about this benefit though, is that the employees have somewhere appropriate to work when they're at home. It's all well and good being rewarded in this way, but if you're not working in the right sort of environment you might well become distracted or disengaged with what you're doing.

It's vital then that you set up an 'at home office'. This will mean that your family will know when you're sitting in your office space that you're working and you're not to be disturbed. Just because you're at home doesn't mean you can help with the housework when you should be getting on with those reports.

With the increasing cost of real estate, more and more people simply don't have the extra room to have a dedicated study in their home, and so it becomes necessary to find somewhere in one of your existing rooms to become your office away from the office. Bespoke kitchen designs can be used to accommodate work space very easily, as kitchen tables and work surfaces provide the necessary 'desk' space needed. If you're having new bespoke kitchen design in your home, it's often possible to tailor your design so that your room ends up both usable and dual purpose.

To optimise your bespoke kitchen design for use as an office, think about what you will need in that space. Obviously a desk of sorts is a must, but do you need power, a phone line, somewhere to tuck away your work belongings after your metaphorical nine to five? Make sure you request adequate storage from your bespoke kitchen design, both for the kitchen itself and for any work you're planning on doing in that space. You'll need somewhere you can sit comfortable, and then you'll be off to a flying start.
