There is far more to good home office design than you might expect if you want this to be a space that not only encourages productivity but also looks great.

If you are developing your home office design ideas as part of a self build project then you have an excellent opportunity to detail the perfect working space from the outset, giving you scope to really think about lighting, electrics, home technology and soundproofing.
