Stealing spaces

The key to working from home is finding a quiet and private space where you can concentrate without interruption. If you haven't got a dedicated study or spare room, get creative with your thinking - a landing space or a nook under the stairs make the perfect spot to tuck yourself away.

Let there be light

Natural light boosts your energy, creativity and productivity, so make sure your workstation is placed near a window. Choosing a soft, sheer window dressing like Voile curtains, Pleated blinds, Vertical blinds or Roller blinds will help diffuse any glare on computer screens

Zen garden

Plants are a really easy way to bring the outdoors in. As well as adding colour, they breathe life into a space and have a proven effect on our wellbeing - which is key when you might be indoors for long periods. Add in some other natural materials, like raw wood and bamboo and you’ll notice a real uplift in your mood throughout the day.
