Home offices are a great use for loft conversions – whether you’re trying to get a new business off the ground or you just want to create a quiet space for kids to do their homework, it’s a welcome addition to most homes.

Don’t Just Stick to Office Furniture

When buying furniture for a room, it’s tempting to just go to that section of any store to look for it. But there’s really no reason why you should be confined to particular items of furniture, especially when there are so many flexible options available.

Some people prefer to use some bathroom or kitchen cabinets instead of shelving in their home office since it provides a solid structure and hidden storage space. Others like to use dining tables as desks since they provide more space (and they’re usually more solidly built).

Don’t Stare at a Wall

Most walls are pretty uninspiring, and if you’re pushing your desk up against the wall you won’t get to enjoy the space and flexibility of your new loft conversion most of the time that you’re working.

Get Creative

Most home offices rely heavily on the desk for storage and organisation, but then you can’t see most of your documents or where things are. Instead of rifling through your drawers whenever you want to get a document, why not use your new wall space to organise your ideas, documents, and your time?
