The perfect office environment doesn’t have to mean a corporate building in the city. More and more employees are now based remotely, with employers giving workers the opportunity and flexibility to work from home. A government report published in November 2017 found that in 2016, almost 4 million employees within the UK were based remotely *, choosing to make their home, their office.
There are clearly many benefits to working remotely. No commute, more adaptability and ultimately for many, less stress. But in order to work successfully and be at your most productive, you need the right equipment and accessories around you to create a home office haven.
Whatever your space and capacity, there are solutions to suit everyone’s tastes and budgets. We’ve rounded up our favourite home office essentials from Robert Dyas, to help you make the most out of your space and help increase your work flow.
