Working from home means you need to provide all of your work equipment for yourself which can be a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, you'll have to foot the bill, do the research and organise delivery and set up of your office or studio equipment. On the other hand, you get to make all the decisions and have final say on finishes, styles and features.
If your work involves drawing, illustrating, drafting or working directly on a flat surface, you'll benefit greatly from a specially designed drawing table. Drawing tables are like desks but instead of having a horizontal work surface, the top of the desk is tilted up at the back, pushing the desk forwards to make drawing or writing on paper, or another medium, easier. Drawing tables can have extra features, such as adjustable tilting tops, pull-out shelves and platforms, drawers, integrated lights, wheels, compartments for tools, and glass or plastic see-through tops. All of these additional features could be useful for your work, but make sure you only choose the ones you definitely need rather than cluttering your work space with unnecessary add-ons.
Dark wood drawing tables will work in traditional studies or home studios, while light wood or black could look good in more minimalist and contemporary rooms. Metal drawing tables have an industrial feel and should be pretty hard-wearing and long-lasting. Whichever style of drawing or drafting table you go for, check that it will be the right size for your work and that it will have the features you need.
