What makes the perfect home office in 2021?

What makes the perfect home office in 2021?

The last time we discussed this subject at Custom Made, nobody had heard of social distancing or being ‘pinged’ – in October 2019, we were none the wiser that Covid was on its way.

As we approach the end of the pandemic, we know that is has impacted our lives in many ways - not least in how we work, as the order to stay at home allowed us to reflect on the working practices that we had all come to accept as normal.

Now that offices are back open, many companies are finding that they see increased productivity from their staff when working in a hybrid format, with some days in the office and some at home.

This means that the workforce is more curious than ever about how to set up the perfect home office, while it’s in the interest of businesses to ensure that working from home is as comfortable and stimulating as possible.

If you want to know more about our bespoke custom made furniture and how it could be ideal for your office set-up, read on to find out more – and read our website for more information.

Bespoke Furniture

One thing that Covid hasn’t changed is the need for ergonomic, pragmatic and intelligent furniture design that compliments exactly how you want to work. What HAS changed is that there is more variety in what that furniture could be, and why you would need it.

Custom Made can provide innovative installations that get the very most out of the office space available, including tables, chairs and desks. We’ll make sure the backdrop for your video meetings looks great, and that your meeting spaces are comfy and welcoming so that you and your clients feel right at home.


Not only is lighting important for our mental health – as studies show that spending time in natural light is unequivocally good for you – but these days you need to make sure that people can see you on the video call when dialling into the office.

We can help with each of these endeavours, helping to create a bright, airy space with plenty of natural light, without the need to sacrifice on comfort and design.

We recommend going for furniture built using light and reflective materials, in order to maximise the amount of light in the room.

Custom Made are experienced in designing the furniture of a room from top to bottom, and can intelligently design and position so that the light is where you want it, at any time of day or year.

Social and dynamic

While working from home very much has its benefits, there are some aspects of the office you just can’t recreate – like the social atmosphere, which can be great for idea generation and general wellbeing.

That’s why it’s great to try to bring some of that sociability back into the home office, and there are a number of ways we can do this. Thankfully we are no longer subject to social contact restrictions, so we can think about how to create huddle spaces in your home office that are perfect creative spaces for yourself and any clients, including ergonomic screen set ups.
