Creating My Perfect Home Office with Calibre Furniture

Creating My Perfect Home Office with Calibre Furniture

When I began blogging and writing, it was a hobby that I’d fit around the children – usually perched on the sofa in front of the television. Fast forward eighteen months and things have gotten more serious than I could ever have imagined! Now, blogging and writing is no longer a hobby, but a fully fledged business that continues to take a lot hard work and determination!

These days sitting on the sofa to work just doesn’t cut it. Watching TV doesn’t provide me with the inspiration I need to be as creative as I possibly can. I have so much ‘blogging stuff’, that I need somewhere to store my accumulation of hardware, resources and reams of information for each project I’m working on. I need an office space!

As well as being a saver of lives, my husband is great around the house. Hubs can turn his hand to anything and so with a little office furniture expert advice from Calibre Furniture, he’s taken on the task of creating me a home office to rival Pinterest’s finest!


Furniture Options


Since this will be an office for my work alone, I really want it to work for me. I’d like a modern look, that’s practical and has oodles of storage. I’ll be spending a lot of time in there, so it needs to be just right! Calibre Furniture have some really great furniture options and I’ve spent a lot of time perusing their site, to find furniture that would fit the size of the room and suit my needs.

I’ve always dreamt of having a big desk to work at and with so many office desks to choose from, I was spoilt for choice! My desk of choice is this Verdi Executive desk. I love how clean and neat it looks, as well as the amount of desktop space it has – perfect for all of the paperwork I have floating around.

Now, we all know you can’t have such a beautiful desk without a chair to match! I’m a big fan of comfortable office chairs, there’s nothing worse than sitting for hours on end whilst you work in an uncomfortable chair. Personally I like the high-backed chairs, ideal for stretching and resting in between projects. This wasn’t an easy choice for me, as much I love a modern look, I was totally drawn in by the classical collection. In the end I chose this amazing leather number. With such a rich colour, I just couldn’t resist!

One of the most important things about an office space is storage. This is even more important for me, as our house isn’t the biggest we need to utilise every inch of space. The right office storage is key to getting the space we have, working for my needs. The Shine Credenza Units are a great combination of useful and attractive. Being able to store all of my unsightly goods inside such an attractive unit, means that my office will be clean, tidy and ready for me to work in at all times!

I simply cannot wait to work in my new office space. Not only will it feel nice to work in, having a separate space means that I can shut the door on my office to get a break from the daily grind.

If you’re thinking about creating your own perfect office space the Calibre Furniture blog offers some great advice to keep you working at your best!
