A Little Help with your Back to School Preparations

A Little Help with your Back to School Preparations

Summer holidays always seem to pass so quickly. One day you wonder what to pack for the perfect picnic and then, before you know it, it’s time to think about going back to school. You’re ironing school uniforms, labelling exercise books, socks and PE gear, and sorting through reading projects.

For many of us, September is a month for change, and not just because the lazy summer days are coming to an end and autumn’s on the way. Going back to school is the time to make a fresh start, whether your youngest is starting secondary school, your eldest is heading off to uni, or you’re planning to take a few evening courses yourself.

One thing many customers look for when they visit our stores at the end of summer is furniture suitable for a study or home office. So today, we thought we give you a little run-down on how we can help make the back to school transition much more seamless.


Whether you’re using a paper pad and pencil, an ipad, or a laptop, you can work on any flat surface.

So why should you look at buying a proper desk? Two reasons.

One, a desk tends to have more than just a surface to write on. Even our slim-line ipad desk has drawers where you can store a mouse, cables, chargers, and USB sticks, and our larger desks have drawers and well-designed spaces that help keep your office neat, organised, and clutter free.

The second reason for choosing a desk is psychological. Having a dedicated workspace will get you much faster into a productive mindset than sitting in your dining or living room. Just as stepping away from your desk will help you relax once the work is done.

Bookcases and Filing Cabinets

No workspace is complete without storage and bookcases and filing cabinets are high on most people’s list.

We stock bookcases and filing cabinets in a variety of sizes, so bring us your measurements and we’re bound to be able to help.

And while you’re in the store, don’t forget to check out our clearance area for bargains. We often have ex-display pieces, end-of-line items, or samples that will work very well if you’re furnishing your first dedicated workspace.


Offices need storage, but you want them to be enticing too. And that’s easily achieved with accessories that fit around your personality.

Check out our selection of baskets, which are an excellent compromise between style and storage facility. Make yourself smile with a quirky vintage sign. Or even cheer up your chosen work area with a colourful storage pouffe or a cosy rug.

Whatever you need in your new study or home office, we can help you make the back to school transition painless. Just ask…
