From filing cabinets and baskets to open shelving and fitted or freestanding storage, there is a wealth of options available to make your study both stylish and practical. Keals of Market Harborough has some quirky filing cabinets and office furniture. It’s important to keep a clear, organised office space, so if you find that you have too much filing cluttering the place, consider using an external storage company such as Harborough Self Storage.

Seating Comfort is king when it comes to choosing seating. Ideally, both the height and back of your chair should be adjustable to give you plenty of support. Elizabeth Stanhope has a lovely selection of elegant seating options. For traditional office chairs, try Colemans. Both are in Oakham. If you would like to know how ergonomic your workspace is, Positura can give you a personalised risk assessment.
Window treatments Being able to control the natural light throughout the day using blinds or curtains makes for a more comfortable working environment. Sarah Harding Interiors, 5 Day Blinds and Rutland Shutters all have large selections from which to choose.
