Finding space for home study furniture is easier than you might think. It’s surprising how many homes have unused areas that can be transformed into useful places – all it takes is a little imagination and practical application.
These days more and more of us are working flexibly; with many people preferring to work remotely rather than face a lengthy commute. Some statistics show that up to 50% of us will work from home by 2020*. Working from home is a great way to save time and money on travelling but in order to perform most effectively, it helps to have a dedicated workspace that won’t encroach on your home life.
Take a Tour of Our Dual Office Space Below
We were recently approached by a professional couple who wanted to transform a spare ground floor room they were already using as workspace into a dedicated home office with space for two desks. Each workstation would need to have its own identity, with bespoke storage for his and her professional work, without looking or feeling cramped or restrictive. On this occasion, our designer, Ian, was briefed to create a functional, clutter-free space that would be modern, symmetrical and flowing with light.
Before the Transformation
After with Bespoke Home Study Furniture
The benefit of using a designer is that he or she can see opportunities in challenging spaces, especially where there isn’t a lot of room or where there are architectural restrictions – in this case, there were two external walls with windows. Ian was able to take this feature into consideration, positioning the desks in such a way that the glare from the sun wouldn’t obscure their computer screens. He included both clients at every stage of the design process, helping to inspire their ideas and listening to what each of them wanted.
“Ian made us feel very relaxed about how we could transform the office. He was able to integrate distinctly different work spaces into a beautifully seamless design.”
Dual Office Space
It was important for our client to have an organised space that could be kept neat and tidy with little effort. Bespoke open and closed storage, specifically designed for a purpose helps whoever is sat at the desk to stay in control of the workspace. The desks were joined together to integrate the separate areas. This technique also allowed Ian to create unobtrusive, low-level storage for cabinets, drawers and an open unit with a pull-out shelf for the printer.
Precision Fit and Finishes
Our clients selected a wood finish which complements the room’s existing wooden flooring. Individual stationery drawers, as well as the higher level doors, are highlighted in our exclusive paint colour, Mayflower. The combination of the warm wood and Mayflower gives additional visual depth. The handles are from our Linea collection which add interest and the finishing touch to the overall design.
“It’s really symmetrical, which is what I wanted, but with two walls with windows I wasn’t sure that this could be achieved. The desk position is great because the sun can’t cause glare on the screens. We’ve both got what we want from this room and we’re very happy.”
Study furniture is an investment that in some cases could pay for itself as you’ll be reducing the time and money that you spend on travel. It’s also a useful selling point as a dedicated home office is becoming increasingly more important to potential buyers.

From our initial enquiry to the completion of our staircase, we have found all the members of the team at Neville Johnson to be very helpful, courteous and professional in all our dealings. The staircase has transformed our living space. We have been very impressed with this company from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Pauline Treston, Northumberland
From contacting the company to the point where the cupboards were fitted I was impressed by the whole process. The initial salesperson that visited was knowledgeable and helpful. I would certainly use Neville Johnson again and highly recommend this company.
Mrs S. D, Lincolnshire
I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.
Mrs K Holroyd, Wrexham
From the outset of our contract with Neville Johnson, we were supported with design choices, given expert advice and all deadlines were met. Everyone was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The craftsmanship is superb; our staircase is now an outstanding feature of our open plan lounge.
Judith Scorer, Stockport
The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.
Cherry Murdoch, London
A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
Richard Smith, Surrey
Our new staircase looks fantastic. We’ve had lots of compliments and it has transformed our hallway. The whole experience was great from beginning to end, from discussing our requirements to the finished article.
Mr & Mrs Begbie, Hampshire
From the initial meeting with the senior designer to discuss our needs, to the surveyor and then the installer, we were extremely delighted with the end result. The installation process went without any problems. All the staff were very professional and we would recommend Neville Johnson without hesitation.
Rosalind Tunnicliffe, Solihull
From the initial contact with the company to the completion and installation everything was utterly professional; we have no hesitation in recommending the company to anybody. We are so pleased, that Neville Johnson is returning to install a new staircase!
Mr and Mrs Thorpe, Radcliffe
From the moment the brochure was delivered, I was optimistic that we were buying quality. I wasn’t disappointed. All contact made was courteous, polite and clear, with phone calls confirmed by email. In short, we’re really thrilled with our library and it was effortless from start to finish.
Alison Cole, Swinton
