The home office existed traditionally as a separate room, with a door to close from distractions. By the end of the 80’s, laptops were seemingly becoming popular among business-people. Laptops, tablets, and smartphones, as we know them today, are reinventing the “home office,” with over 67% of the UK owning a laptop, the home office can now be at a café, the kitchen table, a sofa, even gardens or parks.
