Do you work from home? More and more people are finding a home office is helping them to fine-tune their work/life balance.
Setting up a dedicated home office means the ‘work’ section of your life is neatly contained, away from the rest of your home and life. If you have the luxury of a separate room or study it makes sense to fit it out as a home office. If you have to use a corner of your living or dining room you can still set up fitted study area, separate from the rest of the room.
A fitted office usually has a desktop, shelves for files, space for a computer and printer and drawers for filing. At the Chiswick Woodworking Company, we can custom design your home office, bespoke to your individual requirements.
Desks can be in a painted, laminated or wood finish. We find a popular choice is to have a stylish wooden desktop, with the rest of the fitted office furniture painted. As we custom make every home office to your personal and individual needs, you have complete freedom of choice and maximum work efficiency.
Painted furniture can be hand painted or sprayed. Hand painting goes well with a more traditional style; spraying can look very sharp with a modern design as the finish can be anything from flat matt to a high-gloss mirror effect.
Your choice of wood also adds to the effect – oak, beech, walnut, mahogany, maple, cherry and other woods each have their individual identity and add character to the final result.
If you opt for a natural wood desktop, the surface can be French Polished or finished in specialist oils (a satin finish), or sprayed with lacquer for a harder wearing surface.
We would be delighted to discuss your requirements and to show you how our expertise can make your fitted home office a success.
