Top Tips To Improve Your Home Office

With the rise of hybrid and remote working in the last few years, it’s no surprise that workers are looking to optimise their home offices. For a productive and efficient working day, it’s important that our environments are right. That’s why getting your home office furniture right can make a huge difference.

At Custom Creations, we’re experts in bespoke office furniture that’s made for your needs. In this blog we’ll explore a few ways in which you can improve your home office for higher productivity.

Separate Work and Home

One of the best ways to improve your home office is to ensure that you’re still separating your work and home life. Just because you’re not physically going to an office doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be in work mode during those hours.

One of the best ways to do this is to have a designated work space (such as a custom desk). Even if your home office doubles as another room in your house, such as a spare bedroom, keep your work area as dedicated to work purposes as you can. Also make sure to avoid home-related distractions, for example asking your family to avoid disturbing you during this time. The more focused you can be while working, the better the days will be.

Freestanding Bespoke Office Furniture

We briefly mentioned above about how having custom-made furniture for your home office can help in increasing focus and productivity. Items such as custom desks and bespoke storage solutions are a great way to make your home office feel more ‘office’ than ‘home’.

With bespoke freestanding home office furniture too, you have complete input on the style and design of your pieces. From the colour and materials to the type of drawers or shelves that are integrated in your custom desk, you’ll get exactly the piece you need.

This way, you can also ensure that your desk and other furniture has enough space for what you need to work effectively. If you have a large number of monitors or technical equipment like printers or drawing tablets, this can be kept in mind.


It can be difficult to combine aesthetics that you want for your home with effective home office furniture. What might be most useful and comfortable might not match the look you want for your home office, and vice versa. But there is a way to make it work for you.

Having an office space that looks good can be just as important as one that’s functional, because if your space is messy or not your preferred style it may be distracting.

With Custom Creations, you have control over the finish of your bespoke office furniture so it matches the design you want for your space.

Fitted Home Office Furniture

If your home office lacks space, one of the best options to level up the room is to install custom, fitted home office furniture. Desks and storage can be blended together to make the most out of the available space while still providing you with what you need to get work done. With more fitted storage space you’ll have less clutter and less distractions when trying to complete tasks.

As well as freestanding pieces, at Custom Creations we design, build and install fitted home office furniture for our clients. From custom desks to cupboards and other storage solutions, we’re here to help give you the working environment you deserve.
