Modern ideas for home office workspaces

The trend in working from home is growing, as more entrepreneurs set up a home office and savvy employers realise the benefits of letting valuable employees base themselves at home. A small workspace or home office can either be a corner of your lounge, a nook, or a dedicated space. Let's take a look at modern spaces that work.



PVC pipe legs and a piece of laminated pine and you have a wall-mounted desk that takes up little space. With a bit of DIY savvy, you can design the table so that the legs can be removed and the desk top folded flat against the wall when not in use.
