Ready for Back to School?

Transform your child’s bedroom with home office furniture from DIY Homefit

For many of us, the last few months have been the strangest times that we have ever lived through. The Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown have impacted on almost every aspect of our lives…. 

One of these is our childrens’ education.

As every parent of school age children is painfully aware, schools closed to most pupils from Monday 23rd March. There were some exceptions – for example, children of key workers – but most children were home-schooled from that point. Towards the end of the summer term, some year groups returned but most children remained at home.

We are now approaching the traditionally big “Back to School” but it is still a little uncertain as to what exactly will happen. Screenshot 2020-10-20 at 14.42.43Different schools are likely to make different arrangements to ensure that pupils return but that people and premises are also kept as safe as possible. It also remains to be seen what will happen to schools in the event of any further lockdowns that need to take place.

However your child’s schooling situation develops over the next few weeks and months, one thing is very clear. It is really important for your child to have a well-designed working area at home. 

This means that they will be able to do their homework when normal school is running, and also to be able to carry on with home-schooling activities in the event of any further lockdowns.

The good news is that DIY Homefit can help! We have recently introduced a fabulous range of home office furniture that includes desks, cupboards, shelves and filing cabinets. 

All our items have various different options so that you can customise them to your specific needs. For example our pedestal desk is available with hi-line cupboards, drawerline cupboards, 2 or 3 drawer units, or filing drawers. The choice is yours! Similarly our cupboards and shelving ranges come in different heights and configurations to suit your requirements. 


We are also able to supply custom sizes on most products. So whatever area of space you are able to set aside for your child’s home school area, you will be able to kit it out to perfection with the help of DIY Homefit.
