Working From Home Guide

Working from Home Guide- Choosing the Right Home Office Desk

At the Direct Office Supply Company, we know first-hand how difficult it can be getting to grips with working from home. You might find yourself working beyond your usual hours because its hard to draw a divide between work life and home life. Maybe you’re struggling to get started because you don’t have the right tools at hand to have a productive day.

Our advice for success working from home is to create an area which will act as an office, separate from any spaces for relaxation. This will make it easier to get focussed, and to switch off when the workday is finished. The three most important components of your new home office are a chair, a desk and storage.

Picking the right office chair is key to working from home successfully. If you’re uncomfortable, you won’t be as productive as possible, and could end up causing long term back problems. To find the correct office chair for your needs, we recommend reading our blog – Choosing the Right Office Chair- which details all the factors you need to take into consideration.

Desking and storage for the home office go hand in hand, as many home office desks have built in storage. However, if you’re looking for a smaller Home Office desk and wish to handle your storage separately, we supply a wide range of filing cabinets, pedestals and office cupboards. You can select from wood finishes, or grey, black, and white if you prefer a more classic look. If you want to bring a pop of colour to your home office, we recommend our range of colourful filing cabinets from Silverline Office. Choosing the right storage is essential, as it will help keep your desk clear and keep your documents organised in the long run.

Within our range of home office desking, we have L-shaped corner desks, straight desks, and some space saving solutions that you might not have considered. We’ll go through each of these options and outline the pros and cons to help you find the perfect desk- no matter how much or how little space you have available!

L-Shaped / Corner / Ergonomic Office Desks

Pros:

  • Desktop space- Corner desks offer a great amount of desktop space. This means your workspace will feel less cluttered, but you’ll still have room for everything you need at hand.
  • Storage options- Ergonomic desking comes with many different storage options and maximise the use of the space they take up. Many desks have built in filing drawers and open shelves- some even have pull-out keyboard/mouse shelves.
  • Choice and variety- A range of colours and styles are available. If you prefer a classic look with a metal cantilever leg, there’s plenty of choice! Many corner desks are now being designed for home office with stylish and modern finishes to match your home décor.

Cons:

  • Large footprint- L-shaped desks are on the larger end of the scale, and some people may not have the space in their home to accommodate one.

Straight Desks

Pros:

  • Smaller sizes- Straight desks usually don’t take up as much room as corner desks. If you’re short on space, there are plenty of narrow straight desks designed specifically to suit your needs.
  • Wide variety of options- The widest variety of styles and finishes are available in straight desking. It seems like there are endless numbers of straight desks to choose from! This gives you the best chance to find something that fits your existing home décor.
  • With or without storage- You have plenty of options to decide how much or how little storage you require. Some straight desks are a simple desktop and legs, or maybe feature a small stationery drawer. This is great if you prefer a sleek design, or if you already have filing cabinets, cupboards, or a pedestal. Other straight desks have filing drawers, open shelving/cubbyhole storage, and even the option of a hutch if you like to maximise your space.

Cons:

  • Less desktop space- The desktop space on a straight desk is often less generous than a corner desk.

Space-saving Solutions

There are options beyond traditional desking for setting up a home office. Some of these go against our golden rule of designating a space specifically for work, but we understand that not everyone has a room to dedicate to creating a study, or even an extra corner in their living room for a desk. Space-saving solutions are items of furniture that are multi-purpose and can be used in everyday life, or pieces that fold away when not in use. See our picks below for examples.

Pros:

  • Fold-away or multi-use- Many items of space saving furniture fold away and can be stored when not in use. Others are dual purpose for both work and dining/living areas.
  • Designed for home- These furniture items are designed specifically to be used in the home, so they have finishes that will likely match with your existing décor.
  • Concealed storage options- Some of these pieces, like the lift-up coffee tables from Teknik Furniture, have concealed storage. This is perfect for hiding your documents and stationery from view once its time to relax, or for a bit of extra living room storage for blankets, magazines etc.

Cons:

  • Less variety- This is still an emerging trend, so not as many styles and finishes are available in comparison to straight desking. However, these products have been popular on our website and we hope to see more styles being released to meet demand.

The Direct Office Supply Company has a wide range of high-quality home office desks to buy online, with fast, free UK delivery. Here are some of our favourite corner desks, straight desks and space saving solutions that are perfect for working from home.

Home Office FAQs

Q. What is the best home office desk?

A. It depends on your space! We can't tell you that one desk in particular is the best desk as it might not work for your space. Check out our picks above and follow the links to see the dimensions, specifications and features then you can pick what the best desk is FOR YOU.

Q. Who makes the best home office desk?

A. We firmly believe that some of the best work from home desks come from our trusted suppliers. These include Dams Furniture, Teknik Furniture, Alphason Office and Dynamic Furniture amongst other! We recommend checking out their products for sale on our website. 

Q. Where should a desk be placed in a home office?

A. Once again, it depends on your space! If space is limited, placing a desk against the wall is probably going to take up the least room.

However, if your chosen desk has a stunning 360 degree finish like some of our home office desks, you might want to make it a statement by placing in the middle of your home office/study. This is also a great option if you meet with clients in your home and want to place a visitor's chair on the opposite side of your desk. 

Choosing the Office Chair or Home Office Chair

Choosing the Right Office Chair- Fabric, Mesh or Leather?

Whether you’re working from home or within an office, a comfortable workspace is essential for productivity. While it’s important to pick the correct desk and storage, picking the correct office chair is the key to making it through the long workday.

Many factors need to be taken into consideration when picking an office chair, for example:

  • What is your budget?
  • How many hours a day will you be using the chair?
  • Do you find a specific style of chair more desirable?
  • Do you need a material that is easy to clean/extra durable?
  • Do you have any additional requirements? (e.g. higher weight capacity, extra support for back problems)

You may want to think about these factors before choosing the material of your computer chair. The Direct Office Supply Company offers chairs in a range of fabric, mesh, leather and leather effect materials to meet our customers’ needs. We’ll go through the pros and cons of each of these so that you can make the most informed choice and pick the right chair for you!

Leather / Leather Effect Office Chairs

PROS:

  • High-end stylish look and feel- leather chairs often feature an executive look and feel that is suited to both formal offices and the home office.
  • Plenty of choice- we offer a large variety of shapes, back heights and designs in our ranges of leather/leather look chairs. This includes executive styles, gaming chairs, and plenty of modern and elegant designs.
  • Comfort- leather chairs offer a comfortable feel, especially real leather which has a softer feel. Plenty of our leather chair have a high back, which is often chosen for its comfort factor. If you’re looking for a deeper and more padded seat, you’re likely to find it amongst our leather ranges.
  • Additional support requirements- If you have any additional requirements, such as support for back problems or you require a seat with a high weight capacity, you’ll find a suitable chair amongst our leather options.
  • 24hr use- for extended use, a 24-hour chair with a leather finish is an ideal choice.
  • Easy to clean- most leather/leather look finishes will wipe clean.

CONS:

  • Higher price- the luxurious feel of a leather chair often comes at a higher price. However, if you fancy the look of a leather chair without the price tag, there are plenty of faux leather alternatives that look just as good!
  • Less colour options- many leather chairs only offer the option of a cream or black finish. However, as ranges are expanding, many of our office chairs are becoming available in a larger variety of colours. These include brown, tan, white, grey, burgundy, blue and more!

Fabric Office Chairs

PROS:

  • Reasonably priced- fabric chairs are more reasonably priced in comparison to leather. If you’re buying on a budget, you’ll have plenty of options to pick from in our fabric chairs range.
  • Plenty of choice- not only are fabric chairs available in the widest variety of colours, there’s a wealth of options in style and back height.
  • Comfort- fabric chairs offer a lot of padding for the most comfortable experience. A lot of our fabric chairs are “24-hour chairs” intended for extended use, which offer the most comfort and support.
  • Durable and long lasting- fabric chairs are durable and hard-wearing, making them ideal for everyday use for many months and years.
  • Great for big offices- the low price and durability means the fabric chair is often the desired option for large employers buying in high quantities to kit out an entire office.

CONS:

  • Difficult to clean- fabric chairs can be easily stained and are more difficult to clean.
  • Less breathable than mesh- although fabric chairs are breathable to a degree, mesh chairs are a more breathable option if you work in a warm environment where more airflow through the seat/backrest would be desirable.

Mesh Office Chairs

 PROS:

  • Breathable- the net-like material on the backrest (and often the seat pad too!) is extra breathable which is ideal for warmer work environments and the warmer months of the year.
  • Reasonably priced- mesh chairs are very reasonably priced. If you’re buying on a budget there will be plenty of options available. These chairs are comparable in price to fabric chairs, and are equally as durable and comfortable!
  • Ergonomic design- many of our ergonomically designed chairs feature a mesh finish. Mesh is the ideal material for creating a shaped and sculpted backrest to offer maximum support. These chairs don’t sacrifice any comfort in comparison to fabric chairs.

CONS:

  • Not as luxurious as leather- mesh chairs don’t offer the same soft feel as leather, however they come at a much more affordable cost.
  • Limited colour choice- most mesh chairs feature a black finish, however more options are becoming available in bright colours such as blue, orange, green, purple and red. Some mesh chairs also have the option to choose a fabric seat pad in a bright colour.

What does your Office Desk say about you

When you first step into your office, one of the first things you are likely to notice is your desk, so what does the desk actually say about you?
There are those who like to have a large desk that they cover in organised mess, others prefer a smaller workspace with less clutter. The type of office desk you own, plus the way you present it can speak volumes about you and your business.

Are You Creative ?

The creative person's desk will be organised chaos. Paperwork, lists, post-it notes and reminders, they will know where everything is but to the unknowing visitor it could just look like a bomb has hit it. Creative people like their desks to look slightly different, whether that be a brightly coloured desk or something out of the ordinary sitting amid all of the clutter. Storage units and funky filing cabinets in eye catching colours are the perfect addition for these artistic souls. So if you think you could be a creative worker take a look at
White Computer workstation and then add a organised touch of colour.

   

Are you a Social Animal ?

You are normally found in a larger office or call centres with lots of staff, the social worker's office desk is a mix of personality and paperwork. Workers that have workstations or desk clusters tend to fit into this category, they normally have a smaller workspace that is filled with personal effects such as pictures, cuddly toys, mugs and much more than can actually fit on this area. This type of person's desk may look untidy but you can guarantee that they know where every bit of paperwork is even if it is hidden under the mounds of other items on their desk. Social animals enjoy working in large groups, get on well with others and look forward to work so that they can catch up on all the latest gossip with a cuppa. To keep productive in these situations, but also happy at the same time, a workstation setup such as the maestro range which allows privacy when needed but it will also means they will be able to communicate with other colleagues during coffee breaks.

 

Are you the Boss ?

Well you can have any desk you want. It's your domain so what image are you trying to convey to staff, customers, family or friends ( if it's the home office or study). Choose from executive to antique, from imposing to minimalist the choices are endless. Just remember once you have chosen the desk you still have to find that Office Chair that will also make a statement but has to be comfortable.
