Be it for better or worse, the home computer is now a concrete feature of every Irish home. Be it a laptop, desktop or flashy Apple slimline gizmo, most homes will have at least one way to surf the web and do home accounts and so on.

And of course, increasing numbers in our knowledge economy are working from home – Ireland is apparently a knowledge economy – pity that those who running the country didn’t seem to have much of it…But I digress!

Bookcase and desk

Home office behind sliding wall with made to measure bookcase unit

We have a wide range of standard home office desks and lots of variety (in terms of size, material and colour) in bookcases that should solve your requirements as well as having the in-house facility to make custom furniture for your personalised home office. The images above give you just a taster of what is possible – in one of the images we show a sliding wardrobe come home office unit – this clever unit makes the most of the sliding doors to enable a hidden work station. Clever to have after a hard days work when the last thing you want is to have to look at the computer screen again during your relaxation time!

Here’s a point I made to a customer recently – why shove your home office into a corner – if you are going to be there you don’t want to be looking at a wall unless you have to! With this in mind I’ve attached a picture of a nice “L” shaped desk with bookcase behind – a really clever way to lay out and make the office become a feature room.

We’re also showing the internals of a traditional cherry desk and really that should be enough to get your appetite whetted! Simple custom desks start from €100 upwards for pre-finished, easy wipe board material. Real oak and walnut veneers (as well as many more) can also be added and mixed and hand-finished for an executive quality feel. It’s all in the customers hands! Thanks for visiting and maybe see you soon!

Consumers can call in to the Drumbriston Furniture outlet on the Dublin Rd, Monaghan Town for a full selection of these and more products. For more information click on www.drumbristonfurniture.ie For trade contract enquiries please get in touch with us on this site.
