So with the benefits this gives to employers, employees will have to make sure that their home is actually suitable for them to work from. This means having an area where they can shut themselves away and sit and work peacefully. Somewhere where the family know that you’re technically in ‘at work’ mode and you’ll be able to work as efficiently (if not more so) than you would if you were at the office.

Many people find home more productive than the office, because they’re not being asked questions by colleagues, being drawn into conversation, or being given extra little jobs to do at all times.

So where in your home would you fit in your workspace? Many people have dedicated studied which are perfectly suited for this role specifically, while others just won’t have this space. It could mean that you’re going to have to use the laptop on your sofa (and why not put the television on while you’re there, just for a little bit of background noise?). That’s just not going to work is it?

Many children already choose the kitchen table to spread out their books and get their homework done, because it’s just a really practical place. You might not have the space in the bedroom for a desk, so the kitchen table makes a great equivalent. Distractions are minimal, and when in doubt mum and dad are usually not too far away to ask for help.

So would you think to incorporate a study into your luxury kitchens? It’s not a bad idea when you think about it. The more use you get out of each room the better in our books, and your luxury kitchens are bound to be somewhere you will want to spend time.

When you’re designing luxury kitchens, think about all these extra little uses you can get out of them. Will you lay out your luxury kitchen so you can include a small study area as well? All you’ll need is a section of work surface with a gap underneath so you can sit comfortably. Make sure there are power points nearby so you can plug in your computer, and a printer if you need it.
