Ask a designer: work-home balance

“I’ve been working from home for a while. How can I keep my working and living spaces separate, without an extra room?”

Excellent question! Interior designer Hans Blomquist has plenty of wisdom to share on the topic, explaining how to best maintain a good work-home balance, even if you live in a small space.

Creating zones

Walls normally do so much of the decision-making when it comes to dividing space! Rugs, curtains and bigger furniture pieces can also be used to make separate zones, even in a smaller home.
