Your couch and your bed are not a good workspace! Here’s how you can pick smart furniture to create a small, functional office space in your home…
The world as we know it has been changed by Covid-19. Flexi-time is going to be part of our lives going forward. While some of us may be excited about that, as it offers us flexible time and more time with our families.
However, as part of today’s fast paced lifestyle, most of us are living in apartments, sometimes without a dining room table or office space to keep our work ‘mess’ in.
This has made working from home a difficult experience, as we find ourselves working from the couch/bed.
We either need to create a comfortable, separate, work-from-home space or we need to look at alternative options, to maximise our space.
Most of us, who live in complexes, have balconies – even if we don’t have furniture on them!
Here’s how to maximise the space you have:
Mr Price Home Desk
Studio office desk: With clean, simple lines and an ultra urban look, this glass desk with metal legs is perfect for any home office.

Enter the balcony desk created to help maximise the floor space on your balcony for the ultimate work-space.
Including practical flat-pack furniture that is well-designed, and ready-to-assemble, Balcony desk offers designed brackets that will fit the need of any balcony railing – whether it be round, rectangular or glass. Problem solved! This style can double up as an outside dining area.
balconybar’s products are molded from carefully selected kiln-dried South African pine, and then treated to SABS specifications in Balconybar’s treatment plant to weather stormy days and harsh sunlight rays. Now you can work from home, from your balcony (hello fresh air), and you can use your balcony desk as a dining table to have dinner on, after working hours.
