If you’re working from home, sitting on the couch or on the bed with your computer isn’t going to work in the long run. You need a proper workspace to stay happy and productive throughout the workday. That doesn’t mean you need a spare room to create your workspace! There are lots of creative ways to make a productive office space in small areas around the house. Check out our ideas below.
One great option is to turn a closet you don’t use often into your home office. With a reach-in or small walk-in closet, you can add a simple desktop and shelves above for storage space. With a larger walk-in, you can create a standard office space on a smaller scale with a small desk and a bookcase or filing cabinet for storage. Or you can add a desktop on one side to use the space as both an office and a closet. When you’re finished working, close the door to hide away work materials.
Fold Down Desks
A custom fold down desk saves valuable space by folding away widthwise or lengthwise when not in use. With a fold down desk, you can create a home office in virtually any part of the house, including the hallway. To add storage space, get a small, unobtrusive wall-hanging storage system or have small shelves incorporated into the desk’s support structure. Make sure there’s enough space to leave your office chair out or you can easily tuck it away into a room.
Corners, Alcoves, and More
If there’s a small unused nook somewhere in your home, it may be the perfect spot for a home office. This can be an alcove, a corner, or even a bay window. With a corner, for example, you can add a custom triangular desk and triangular shelving above for storage. With a bay window space, you can install a desktop and enjoy a beautiful view of the outdoors while you work. You can create a small office space in so many unexpected places in your home with a desk or desktop designed specifically for your chosen spot.
