If the weather has you stranded at home, or just wishing you did not have to brave the elements, now might be the perfect time to consider creating a space from which to work from home.
And if you are working from home, you will quickly realise that having a dedicated space is vital to creating a clear border between home and professional life.
Not everyone has the luxury of a spare room that can be converted to a home office, but a well designed desk can turn a corner of your home into an office for use as and when you need it.
Consider everything you need — a desk, adequate lighting, storage for documents — and keep the space as compact as it needs to be. Shelves over a desk, or a desk that incorporates storage, will provide all you need without taking up much floor space.
The key is have an area that will put you in a working mindset, and reduce the distractions of home. Keep your workspace free of domestic clutter, and never use it for anything other than work.
