As this layout is for a temporary period, you may have a vision of it becoming a permanent fixture in your home. Design a space that fluctuates illusion by purchasing furniture that fits well within your home. This Tonelli glass desk makes a design statement but isn't too over the top.

If you don’t want to use up to an entire room, then consider using furniture. This home office set up courtesy of The Dormy House is a fantastic way to provide a space to work from home with enough room for your desktop, keyboard, and accessories, but can be shut away at the end of the working day and put back for the next.

Double up your storage

Most people who work remotely use a laptop, so a small area can be perfect for you. Think vertical and opt for a desk that also doubles up as useful display storage. A ladder desk can be a modern feature that doesn’t take up too much floor space.

Create a dual workstation

Lots of homes will have two people who are now working from home in this outbreak, so rather than separate yourselves into a different room why not create a double working station. Working together in an inspiring space can motivate both of you. Get ideas from the picture above, which is simple, tidy and provides a light and bright space.
