The DIY home office you deserve!

Get your home ready for work with DIY home office furniture from DIY Homefit.

Not so very long ago we ran an article called Is your home ready for work? We looked at the growing trend for working from home, and some ideas for how to make it work for you… 

Little did any of us know at the time that in 2020 working from home would become the new normal for many people. And although this new normal was triggered by the Covid-19 lockdown, many companies are now realising that their future workplaces and patterns may never be the same again.

Recent research indicates that around 93% of people are able to perform their job fully from the comfort of their own home, and that more than half of these people would prefer to keep working from home if they are offered the choice.

People enjoy the flexibility of being able to work from home and the freedom of not having to commute. Many also prefer working from home because they can dress more comfortably, they find it easier to concentrate, and they have a workspace that is perfectly set up for their needs.


A workspace for your needs

This last reason is really important: a workspace set up for your needs. If you have been working from home during lockdown, and assumed that this was a temporary situation, you may have been doing work from wherever you could find a quiet place in your busy home. 

But this is not easy. As well as the logistics of trying to fit in with the rest of the family – who are probably also either working or home schooling – many people have also begun suffering from various physical symptoms as a result of working in unsuitable conditions.

A recent survey by the Institute of Employment Studies revealed that more than half of those surveyed were experiencing new aches and pains, particularly in the neck, the shoulders or the back. Most of this is due to poor working posture, for example hunching over laptops either on kitchen or dining tables, or balanced on your knees on a sofa or even a bed.

So if you are going to work more permanently from home, you really do need a space that is set up for your needs. Not only does that space need a comfortable chair but also a proper desk at the right height for you. You also need plenty of practical accessible storage so that you can find everything safely and easily without having to twist and turn, or move piles of stuff around.

So at DIY Homefit we are delighted to introduce you to our new range of DIY home office furniture.
