This is how easy it is to create the ultimate office space in your own home


How sick are you of doing your job from your sofa?

Working from home had its perks during lockdown one. But now that we’re on our third round of staying indoors, fighting for work space with everyone else in your house is beginning to lose its allure.

With over a third of 18-34 year olds forced to work from their bedrooms over the past year, yet 78% of people hoping to continue working from home for the foreseeable future, it’s clear that something’s got to give*.

Luckily, that’s where Wickes can help. 

They have produced a range of clever workspaces that can be integrated into their stunning kitchens, and are now offering home offices as an independent service too. You can design your workspace with one of Wickes’ design consultants and then they can even install it for you too, so you can get the help you need to create the functional, productive space we’ve all been dreaming of. Simple.

So, all you need to do is choose the perfect home office just for you. Let’s take a look at what’s on offer.

Be a boss with bold

If you’re going to treat yourself to the home office you’ve been longing for all these months, you might as well go bold, right?

Wickes’ Melrose fitted home office in carbon is sure to make a statement and add a little drama to your house.

Its sleek, slab-style doors complement a high-gloss or matt finish, adding some modern glam to your at-home working arrangements. 

If you choose to blend it into your kitchen, you can mimic the storage space you have for cooking for your office, opting for large cupboards and open shelves in which to keep your important files (and then use the exposed storage for family photos and plants). 

Alternatively, if you prefer a more typical office look and go for a standalone set-up, you can pair plenty of drawers with a broad spacious desk so you can really spread out and get to work. However you work, you can talk to your Wickes design consultant about creating the perfect space for you.

The beauty of Wickes’ fitted home offices is that they are available in the same designs and finishes as their stunning kitchens, so you can seamlessly blend your workspace into the heart of your home, or continue a theme elsewhere in your property for a slick-looking abode.

Another striking option is the Camden range, available in deep carbon, moody midnight blue, dove grey and pure white.

The Camden range is handleless, making for a minimalist look that will fit into old and new properties. 

With J-Pull grooves, the Camden range makes for easy access to drawers and cabinets and blends effortlessly into a room, so once the work day is over, your workspace becomes a nice feature in the home. That should stop your work life merging into your home life so much; one of the top five concerns home workers have shared during the pandemic*.

Pair this bold design with a contrasting worktop to make a feature of your workspace, and opt for plenty of surrounding storage to keep this looking clean and clear – this will really enhance its minimalist vibes.

Ergonomic and elegant

After something a little more traditional but still functional as an office? Look no further than Wickes’ Tiverton range.

Available in period colours such as natural oak, sage, bone and slate, this sophisticated range offers vintage appeal and will look right at home in Victorian properties.

Its timeless shaker design means it will never lose its lustre, so you’ll always have a home office to be proud of. 

As with all of Wickes’ fitted home offices, you can adapt the storage options to suit your needs. With the Tiverton range, shelves and cabinets that encompass the desk space look classy and professional, and create ample room for more than one person to share as and when necessary.

Wickes’ Milton home office in dove grey

Another conventional option that looks great in neutral tones is the Milton home office range. It’s a durable and decadent wooden effect design that mimics the Tiverton shaker range but less ornate, making it an ideal option for newer homes.

Accessorise your classy Milton home office from the handles right through to the light fittings to create your ideal working ambience and a space that your work team (and your household!) will envy.
