Creating an efficient and organised home office is a handy ticket to enhancing productivity and your overall wellbeing when working from home, as many of us do these days. One of the best ways to achieve this is by incorporating modular furniture into your storage and shelving plans for your home office. Modular furniture brings an instant injection of versatility and flexibility into your space, letting you tailor your workspace to your specific needs and tastes.
Why use modular furniture compared to normal furniture?
You might remember from our article on hallway storage - modular furniture offers a huge variety of benefits, and in the case of your home office, the flexibility offered by modular furniture really allows it to come into its own. Home offices are often lacking in space, meaning it can be difficult to get traditional furniture to fit. Modular furniture, on the other hand, can be set out and adjusted however you like, so you can make the most of whatever space you have available.
Modular shelves are excellent options for displaying and organising books, files, and office supplies. They can come in a wide variety of different configurations, allowing you to mix and match modules to create a shelving system that’s entirely unique to you and your circumstances. You may want to consider installing a modular shelf unit with shelving above your desk, or along a blank wall adjacent to your desk. This not only makes the most of the vertical space you have, but also keeps your frequently used items within easy reach. You can choose open shelves for easy access, or opt for modular units with doors or drawers to cut down on the clutter.
Modular Desks with Built-in Storage
Modular desks with built-in storage can be a practical and space-saving solution for any home office. Look for desks that feature integrated shelves, drawers, and cabinets to keep your workspace tidy and organised. For those only needing a relatively small amount of storage, our Harome offering is a fantastic choice. Or if you have high ceilings, a tall modular desk like the Amotherby may be more to your liking. For those looking to make a statement (or maybe you just need the space!), the Habton is the perfect way to transform your space.
Modular Cabinets and Storage Units
Maintaining an organised filing system is crucial for any home office, and for keeping stress to a minimum... Modular cabinets, shelves and storage units provide a functional and customisable solution for storing important documents and supplies, meaning you don’t have to panic the next time you have to try and remember where that important form is! Consider a modular cabinet with cubby boxes to store your files efficiently, effectively and within reach. You can also opt for storage units with a combination of open shelves and cabinets to accommodate various items, maximising store space without sacrificing places to display the things you love.
Creative Room Dividers
For those with larger home offices, a large shelving unit can also double as a room divider, helping you create zones in a larger room to maximise your floor space. You could, for example, have a modular room divider with cubbies to split your room, such as those in our feature shelving range. This allows you to store books, supplies, or decor items while creating visual separation between your office and other living areas.
