Working from home? We're pretty much all in the same boat right now, and for those of us who aren't lucky enough to have a dedicated office, times are tough. There comes a certain point when you just cannot work from your dining table (or ironing board) any longer – we understand. And we're here to help you turn a spare corner of your home – whether that's in your dining room, bedroom or even under your stairs – into a dedicated working space. Even just buying a desk and comfortable chair can up your motivation levels and make Monday to Friday ten times more bearable. Whether you have £30 to spend or £300 spare, these home office ideas can help.
We've been shopping the mega 50 per cent off La Redoute sale that's currently on and in particular their home office section. Keep scrolling for our top favourite buys that we wouldn't mind pressing pay on ourselves – if our London flats could somehow grow another room overnight. And don't miss out on these super cheap prices...

NOYA Vintage Desk |
£375 £300 at La Redoute
Okay so we know this is a little expensive, but it's just so pretty. Let's think of it as more of an investment – you will be using it every Monday to Friday for the foreseeable. And it has a very large storage drawer, as well as rattan partition panels. It's vintage, there's 20 per cent off and it's definitely practical (size and storage-wise).

This sleek-looking office chair comes in white or grey, and it's on wheels so you can whiz around your home office with ease. It has arms, too, while it's easy to wipe clean should you spill your coffee or your lunch all over yourself on the regular. Comfortable and durable, with a steel base, too.
