In the last five years there has been a 13% increase in the numbers of employees working from home and now there is even a National Work from Home Day! There is now around four million home based working employees and many millions more who occasionally work from home, plus a further 2 million home-based privately owned businesses and that clearly demonstrates a growing trend and culture change.
So where do a lot of these home workers actually work from? The days of working from the garden shed on an old table are long gone and home workers are looking for a more professional environment and furniture, yet something that doesn’t look out-of-place or too corporate in a home environment.
Beau-Port Kitchens and Interiors has just recently finished installing a beautiful home-office/study area in their showrooms which shows just how streamline an elegant a home office, study or even a corner of a kitchen or living area can look.
In just a few decades the attitude to working from home has changed enormously, with freelance consultants initially feeling as though they had to ‘hide’ their home working behind ‘virtual offices’. Today the practice of working from home has flourished, thanks to changing attitudes by employers and the development of new technologies.
Home workers want to be comfortable, work efficiently and above all look and feel professional and organised in their work space, wherever it can be located in the house or even in a well-built exterior office in the garden and the right furniture helps to create the perfect working environment. Come and take a look at our new home study/office at our 2000 sq ft showroom. We also design and install beautiful furniture for media rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms.
