Working from home may have become the new normal, but not everyone has a spare room to devote to office work alone. Ingenuity has become the name of the game. Awkward and seldom used corners have now become invaluable spaces to plonk the laptop, take a zoom call, and tidy up a spreadsheet. Even better if it’s in a spot that means you can keep an eye on the kids at the same time. So where better than a corner of the kitchen to carve out a dedicated WFH counter? It’s close to the coffee maker after all, and if you’re a master at multi-tasking you can even rustle up the dinner at the same time!

The beauty of this Bar Table from Dunelm is that is takes up so little space. It can be moved against the wall when not in use and double up as a kitchen worktop or actual bar as necessary. It has handy shelves for stowing the filing, and is the perfect height for conference calls – no balancing the PC perilously on a stack of books.
