      Play tricks with PerspexMost of the time, natural light throws furniture and fittings into sharp relief, but it can do the opposite, too. Once hit with light, this Perspex desk and chair, positioned to maximise the daylight in this modern home office, recede from view, opening up the space with refracted light and leaving the computer as if floating at the window. Unlike a more traditional study, this modern take feels spirit-lifting, outward-looking and full of energy.

      Sort the storage and consider surfacesYou can help your tenants to keep your property in good condition by giving them plenty of storage. “Where possible, spend money on building in as much storage as possible, so that your tenants are able to keep the place tidy and organised with minimal fuss,” says property advisor Jemimah Barnett. She also advises, for example, avoiding surfaces such as marble for worktops which can easily be stained by spills. “But do spend on decent – read, hard-wearing and nice-looking – worktops, bathrooms and floorings. These things take a real beating, so make sure they’re built to withstand that. Luckily, there are so many options these days that are really robust and affordable yet don’t compromise on style.”The key dimensions to know when designing storage

      Figure out where to workIf you typically work from a home office, you may need to make other arrangements while the builders are in. Even if your office is not out of bounds during the work, the noise, dust and disruption could make it an unpleasant, unprofessional place to be. Could you rent some desk space for a month or two, work at a friend’s house, use the local library or decamp to a shed or caravan in the garden? Be prepared to clear shelves of files and books, too, storing them where you have easy access to them and where they are safe from dust.

      Be mindful of glarePeople often overlook the problem of glare when trying to bring more light into their homes. Remember that glass does reflect more than most materials, and it’s worth bearing that in mind when deciding whether or not to go for it. Transparent furniture keeps the space visually open, though, and allows light to permeate further into a room. The reflection of the tree in the glass desk might be quite welcome at this work station.

      Try transparent furniture With a handful of design tricks up your sleeve, a compact office area can be made into a light and airy working zone that feels almost double the size. A see-through acrylic desk and chair won’t encroach, visually, on valuable floor space, while all-white, built-in cubbyholes can stash books, files, stationery and a printer, keeping surfaces clear and clean.Browse more ideas for small space working

      Actually the white bookcase and the lean black desk can work out
