Create a kitchen office with bespoke carpentry and joinery
The kitchen office is a growing trend that’s seeing the traditional kitchen being transformed into a multi-functional space as more Surrey and Sussex residents continue to work from home.
If you’re planning a kitchen renovation it could be a good idea to incorporate a comfortable and functional dedicated home office into the design. Or perhaps you have a small space in your kitchen to tuck in a mini fitted office? With creativity and expert joinery and carpentry skills, even the smallest corner could be repurposed to accommodate a workstation with storage for equipment, files and paperwork.
Slot into an alcove or corner
If you have an empty wall section or unused corner in your kitchen then turning it into a workstation will be easy. Just plan plenty of bespoke storage above and below the desk to organise all your office paraphernalia. Plug sockets and tailored task lighting will be essential too.
Extend a worktop
Installing an office space needn’t take up much room. For instance, you could extend one of your kitchen worktops or create a multipurpose breakfast bar. A nearby deep drawer would be ideal to house your printer.
Hide in a cupboard
An underused pantry or tall cupboard could be converted into a built-in hideaway workstation. At the end of the day all your office kit and clutter will be instantly hidden away by closing the door. This same area could be multifunctional and used as a kitchen study for the children too or a bar area at the weekend.
Transform a kitchen island
A kitchen island unit could become an all-inclusive workstation catering for cooking, dining and home office work. With the addition of power points and clever storage for office equipment and files it will be an immensely practical solution.
