“Home Office Buying Guide”
Working from home is becoming more and more popular and it shows in our sales figures of Home Office Furniture. I have put together a little buying guide which I hope will help when it comes to kitting out your home office…
Things to consider:
Quality vs Price
This for me should be the most important factor when deciding on what home office furniture you want to purchase. Whether that be a desk, bookcase or chair. There are many places where you can pick a desk up for less than £100, but come on, how long do you honestly think it is going to last???
It is also worth considering the working environment when it comes to your home office, I mean if you are working from home don’t you want a home office that is stylish and inspiring in order to get the best out of you? No doubt we have all worked in places over the years that have the same bland walls, desks etc. It’s your home and your office, add a bit of colour and style!
Quality and style don’t have to cost a fortune, take the Jual PC201 Laptop Table for example at just £229.00 in two different sizes and available in three different finishes.

These days there are many different options when it comes to the materials used. You could have any of the following glass, melamine, solid wood, chipboard, MDF, Veneer etc. The material you choose is going to depend a lot on your budget and the sort of look you are trying to create.
For example a solid wood desk, chair, bookcase and pedestal is not going to be cheap, perhaps you could replicate it with a cheaper alternative such as veneer or melamine? Veneer is the closest you are going to get to the solid wood look and feel.
All the Jual Home Office products are finished in real wood veneer. So the bits you see and feel are in fact natural wood. For more information of how our products are crafted you can read my “creating the curve” blog.

The size of your home office furniture should also be considered. Although it is not always the case the home office is usually the smallest room in the house.
So even though you may have found the perfect desk or bookcase online or in store, they have the tendency to look completely different when you get them home. Be sure to know the size of the space you have to work with and double check the dimensions of the products you are purchasing.
The Jual desks, tables and bookcases all come in two sizes you and you can double check all the dimensions on our website www.jualfurnishings.co.uk

Now you have your home office all set up, you need to make sure you look after it.
The Jual products will last years if they are treated with care. For example as mentioned above the products all use Natural Wood veneers, so it is advisable to keep them away from direct sunlight and not to keep them too close to radiators or anything else that may give off too much heat. Don’t be fooled by the word veneer, our products are still real wood so are not immune to warping and the other side effects solid wood products have from direct sunlight or heat.
When dusting try to use a soft dry cloth, spray polishes are fab but make sure you read the label to make sure they are suitable.
Well there you have it my buying guide for Home Office furniture, with of course a little bias towards the Jual Home Office Ranges (I am the sales manager after all).
Hope it helps and if you have any questions then please feel free to get in touch.
