Gayatri Dongre, Senior General Manager at Western Furniture in UAE shares some top tips to create the perfect home office:

Choose a brightly lit space. Light is essential, so choose a well-lit place. If your home does not have proper natural light invest in good quality lamps – floor or wall lamps are ideal.

Seating space. You are your own boss at home-office so you have the freedom to choose where you want to place your den. You can choose from a corner table and chair or a versatile couch or armchair paired with a coffee table that will help you work and relax at the same time.

When Setting Up a Home Office  The pliant use of desk table. Some people cherish working with plans and charts spread across the table that helps them to have a broader outlook. If you are one among them, then go for a foldable table that gives you the option to use according to your convenience.

Declutter with Wall Units. Instead of getting cupboards, even if small, wall units are perfect for a home office. This is a clever-storage option where you can clutter and declutter as you like, without creating a post-work mess.
