What considerations should be accounted for when buying home office furniture?

Choosing the Right Home Office Furniture

Unlike a corporate office, when you design a home office you're designing a room that family and friends may have access to. Home office furniture should not only reflect your style and character, but should also be accessible to guests and safe for kids. When choosing home office furniture, consider all the types of people who my eventually have access to this area.

For example:

  • If your guest room shares space with your office, have lockable drawers or consider an armoire desk or roll top that will allow you to close your office for guests.
  • If your home office shares space with other rooms be sure your desk isn't filled with unsafe contents that can be accessed by children (such as paper shredders, sharp letter openers or staplers and scissors). Keep these items on a high shelf or in locked drawers.
  • If your computer might be used by other members of your family, consider setting up a separate access for their usage so your files and settings aren't jeopardizes by viruses or due to accident.
