Not every house has enough extra rooms and extra space to develop a large area into the home office that you were thinking about. Home offices are one of those things that people tend to think they need a lot of room for, and if you are meeting clients and things, that may be true. Other than that, you can pretty much work in or fit a small office place in the unused areas of your home! You would be surprised what you can do with corners or the space under your stairs! Utilizing unused spaces or finding furniture that has more than one use can be the key to having your cake and eating it, too.
Choose A Nice Place
The first step in making your small home office is finding the right spot for it. Corners of the owner’s suite are a great place to squeeze in a little work space or the area under the stairs. Unused closets can also be an opportunity for building a small but nice workspace that is out of the way. Open walls are another great option as there are many small and skinny desks you can work with. Many desks can also function as shelving which makes your space twice as useful.
Choose Your Furniture/Build Your Desk
You can decide to go shopping for the perfect sized desk to fit into your small work station or you can build one yourself! Floating shelves can be a particularly useful option for some of the really small areas. Install the shelf securely and find the perfect desk chair to keep your spine supported and your body comfortable.
Decorate Your Space
Once you have all the work done and your shelves installed or your desk in place, you get to do the fun part of decorating your little office space. A great option is to use cute or fancy bulletin boards, whiteboards, or calendars to decorate your area because they are not only decoration, but they are also functional. Write notes and reminders or pin up the important mail you get, all on the cute things you purchase for your small office space.
Be creative in your search for your office space, even tiny homes or apartments offer some space for a workspace. If you are really having trouble finding the space, consider making a fold down table that can be used as desk space for homework or work. Once you are done with it, up and away it goes. Have fun designing your new office space and have fun decorating! You are sure to enjoy the fruits of your labor!
