With many of us now working from home due to the impact of Covid19, it makes sense to create a space where you can get down to work in a comfortable and efficient way.
You need a separate space to work in that is removed from the rest of your home - you need quiet to focus. Look for some comfortable seating, to use with a desk or a table you already have in your home. If possible you should try to find a room away from the rest of your home where you can shut the door and work.
If you don’t have a whole room to use as a work space, think about using part of your dining area, a nook in your kitchen, or carve off some space in your living area or on your balcony.
Here are five stylish homes that offer great interior design ideas that will help your work-from-home experience so good you won’t want to return to the office!
1. Katong Gardens
Having lots of indoor plants in your home helps not only to stop you from feeling claustrophobic during the lock-down, they also help improve the air quality. This Katong Gardens apartment is full of greenery and indoor plants creating a fresh environment for working from home.
While there is no dedicated home office space in this apartment, the large timber dining table makes a perfect spot to work from home; and the functional eat-in bar in the kitchen is another great space to use.

2. Tampines Greenridge
This Tampines Greenridge apartment has a small, dedicated space for a home office, tucked next to the floor-to-ceiling windows it has plenty of natural light. If you’re bored of your desk, however, you can move to the dining table, which in this apartment also offers heaps of natural light as well as more space to spread out.
In the dining space you can spread out your work-from-home stuff, but if that’s not enough room, the long eat-in bar in the kitchen is also a great spot to get some work done.
