The pandemic brought forth a relatively new concept in the workplace-working from home (WFH). Even as the COVID-19 numbers continue to gradually subside, one thing remains clear-the concept of working from home is here to stay.

However, to prevent a lot of people working from home from becoming homebodies and wrecking their bodies, there is need for people to set up makeshift home offices for ergonomic working environments. This means most people are looking to design their office tables to suit their home working culture.

This begs the question, how important is your desk? Continue reading to learn more.

What is the right office desk design for WFH?

When you get the right sit stand desk frame for your home office, you essentially reduce the magnitude of related health issues. Here are some tips to help you get the right office desk.

1. Consider the right design

The most important aspect to consider is the layout and design of your home. This will aid you in choosing the right design that will suit your home’s layout. It shouldn’t be too small or too big, but just the right size.

2. The height and width should be just right

These are vital considerations when it comes to choosing the right office desk. If these measurements are not precise, the office desk will be very uncomfortable to use and could lead to some chronic back issues.

3. A modular and modern desk design is better

Modern office desks are way better that the traditional desks because they offer much more. Furthermore, they are more durable because they are made of long-lasting materials, which have been engineered by improved manufacturing processes. They are mostly modular and smoother in nature.

Also, they are modernized with certain quirks that make them specialized for certain types of work. For instance, there are those that are specially designed to house your computer or laptop for effective wiring and handling to steer clear of all the mess, keeping your working space organized.

4. Aesthetics always come in handy

Inasmuch as you want to be work-focused from your home office as you choose the best office desk, remember that this is your personal office at home. Therefore, whatever it looks like will be up to you. This means that you should not neglect the element of aesthetics. It is just how well your desk blends with the layout of your home.

When you go for one with unique décor items, multifunctional designs, unique paint of modular design, you can add some sense of style to your home. The result is a more sophisticated feel than just a plain-old office desk.

Wrap up

While some people might think that a work from home office desk is such a mundane detail, you cannot assume the importance of a good office desk. When selected and used correctly, office desks will not only offer extended service but also provide functionality like ease and organisational efficiency of working environments.

Therefore, always ensure that you go for the best office desk design to enjoy all the benefits.


Moving House

Five Places in the UK to “Emigrate” To

Now that the Uk is no longer a part of the EU, moving abroad to a european country has become a lot trickier for UK citizens. It’s a terrible shame because we’re so restricted, but at the same time, it’s given us a lot more impetus to look at some of the more beautiful places right here in the UK, as an alternative to emigrating to Europe. With this in mind, we thought we’d take a fun look at some of the most beautiful places in the UK as Europe-alternatative “emigrating” spots!

Bishop Aukland, County Durham

Places in the UK: Bishop Aukland

Bishop Aukland is a market town in County Durham which is steeped in history and has some beautiful churches and buildings, dating back for hundreds of years. It’s located 12 miles  northwest of Darlington and 12 miles southwest of Durham, so it’s ideally placed to give you a slice of village life, while putting you in a good position to commute if you need to. If you need a removals company in Darlington, there are plenty to choose from!

Stackpole, Pembrokeshire

Places in the UK: Barafundle Bay

The pretty little village of Stackpole is a few miles south of Pembroke, in between Freshwater East and Bosherston. The village has some pretty cottages and an Inn (The Stackpole Inn) but is better known for the Stackpole Estate, Stackpole Quay and Barafundle Beach nearby. Barafundle Bay is nestled between cliffs and is reminiscent of a secluded bay on a Greek island.

Lavenham, Suffolk

Places in the UK: Lavenham, Suffolk

Lavenham, located in the heart of the stunning Suffolk countryside, is considered to be Britain’s best preserved medieval village and one of Suffolk’s most important wool towns.  Medieval charm can be found at every turn with timber framed buildings lining the narrow streets and lanes leading up to the impressive market place. These days, Lavenham is a thriving village with a strong community spirit and boasts a wealth of independent boutique shops, galleries  and fantastic restaurants.

Port Sunlight, Merseyside

Port Sunlight

Port Sunlight is a bit of a socialists dream, with the village originally being built in the late 1800’s by the Lever Brothers to accomodate worked in their soap-making business. Its Arts and Crafts cottages are surrounded by paths winding through fields and woodland. Port Sunlight Museum details the village’s history, and the neoclassical Lady Lever Art Gallery showcases 19th-century decorative arts. The whole place is a stunning little slice of history and it’s somewhere I’d love to live myself.

Kingsbarns, St. Andrews

Kingsbarns Beach

One of my friends, Katy, went to St. Andrews University, and during her second year she shared a cottage with her friend Michelle in a tiny village called Kingsbarns, just outside of St. Andrews. The village itself is absolutely tiny, but it’s right on the coast and boasts some of the most stunning natural scenery I’ve ever seen. The beaches have that natural, windswept feeling of a beach which isn’t overrun by people all year round and I’d happily live there.
