Working from home

working from home

As a result of the pandemic, more of us work from the comfort of our home. While this can be relaxing, (no more commuting), it sometimes can make us less efficient with work. In order to be more effective working from home, you need to set up a home office environment which can encourage more productivity.

Home offices don’t have to be boring – and they don’t need to take over a whole room. Argos compact office furniture styles are designed to coordinate with your favorite home trends, meaning they can easily fit into a small corner in your bedroom or living room without taking up much of your floor space.

Home office desks

Separate home and work with home office desks which inspires productivity. When choosing a home office desk, opt for a compact or corner desk. A storage desk is ideal, if you have lots of paperwork or documents, so they do not clutter your home.

Home office chairs

Comfort is the most important feature when choosing a home office chair, if you’re going to be using it for work day-in-day-out, you need a chair that is adjustable and promotes a healthy posture.

Home office lighting

There are certain places where you really need good lighting, to get the job done, and not strain your eyes too much – one of these is your home office. When buying home office lighting,  choose adjustable lighting, so you have more flexibility and can direct light, exactly where you need it.

Refresh your room to boost your mood

Mood-boosting room refreshes

We are spending more time in our homes than before, so it’s more important than ever for our homes to be a happy, comfortable space. Updating your cushions, refreshing the bedding, or adding a little greenery, are small tweaks that have a big payoff.

Follow the steps below to refresh your space and improve your mood.

Opt for statement lighting

Are you lacking lighting creativity in your rooms? Switch out boring shades or lamps, to something with a bit more personality or style. Don’t stress if you’re in a rental and can’t change lighting fixtures – luxe floor, table lamps and stylish lampshades can also lift a space.

Invest in standout furniture

If the big pieces are a little lackluster, boost the appeal of a room with some smaller statement pieces. A bright accent chair, bold pouf, or quirky table will quickly make it your own.

Create a gallery wall

Wall art can instantly brighten a magnolia-walled world. Collect a few of your favorite prints or photos and play around with different layouts on the floor before you add to the wall.

Trick the eye with mirrors

They make a space seem brighter and more spacious, especially when paired with lots of lighting. If you’re struggling for hanging space, choose standing styles or large mirrors that can rest against a wall.

Clear (or conceal) your clutter

Stuff. Everywhere? Can make your space look messy, and your mood feel heavy and lacklustre – so dedicate a day to decluttering. Insert some savvy storage to display or stow away the things you decide to keep.

Hide ugly flooring

Cover up cold laminate or drab carpet with a lovely rug (the bigger the better). Renting? You can easily take these with you if you move, so it’s worth investing in a style you love.

Making more of mealtimes
