What to Consider When Building or Renovating a Home Office

Planning on converting a room within you home into an office? British Gypsum have the solutions to create the ideal working environment.

Working from home comes with its benefits, one being the freedom to find the perfect work/life balance to suit you. However, it can be very tempting to carry out your work sat on the sofa, or at the dining room table – neither are particularly good options for productivity or your posture. 

It’s important to create a professional and well-organised space, which will allow you to work effectively in your home. So whether you are currently planning to convert your loft into an office, or planning to add an office to your new self-build project, British Gypsum have a range of products that can help turn any space into a hive of productivity.

  2. Every office needs sufficient storage for documents, books and electronics. British Gypsum’s Gyproc Habito plasterboard allows you to fix heavy items directly to your wall using only a standard wood screw. This makes it easy to fix shelves and storage units to the wall, keeping all of your paperwork out of the way and giving you more space to work.

If desired, you can paint a layer of chalkboard paint over the top which will allow you to jot down all of your ideas when inspiration strikes!
