Here are our top 5 home offices for 2020 - the official year of working from home
Working from home has become part of everyday life for almost half (46.4%) of British workers since the start of lockdown according to official figures released by the Office for National Statistics.
For the past 5 months, many of us have had to manage with a makeshift office in the spare room or setting up a workstation on the kitchen table. However with many companies looking to create more flexible working solutions which could see you spending more time at home than the office, then a more permanent solution is needed.
We’ve found some of the best and coolest home office solutions to suit any budget and lifestyle…
