The challenge

Andrea Krige of Paarl writes: Since the beginning of lockdown last year, my husband and I have both been working from home full-time; we’re lucky to have a home office with a door that we can close at the end of the day. The space is functional, with a desk for each of us, but we need inspiration to make it more appealing and comfortable. We already have a cabinet in which we can store some of our office supplies, but the printer is standing on a desk and it takes up a lot of space. Extra storage space would be useful and we need a rug. Please help!

The solution

The floor plan indicates that the room is spacious, so you can experiment with the layout; with a few clever changes, the space will look more professional. Also, add warmth with personal elements – this will increase productivity.
