A home office doesn’t need to be a grand, private room! There are plenty of ways to maximize space even with a smaller workspace. Below, we’ve outlined a few of our favorite ideas for small home offices that still allow you to be productive.
Utilize Forgotten Spaces
You may not think you have space for an office, but look again! Do you have any unused spaces in your home? Forgotten corners, space between furniture, or even closets and under-stairs spaces can be transformed into a home office just with the addition of a desk and some storage staples.
Built-ins are a great way to save on space without sacrificing storage or usability. A built-in set of bookcases and cabinets could be a great way to transform an otherwise unused part of your wall into a home office.
If a desk is too cumbersome in your space, try a fold-up version! This allows you to keep your desk invisible and out of the way when not in use, freeing up space. At More Space Place, we provide custom storage solutions that incorporate fold-up desks as well as permanent ones.
In a small home office, too much visual clutter can make the space feel even tighter. Try out a minimalist style to make your small office feel a bit bigger. For example: neutral-colored furniture with clean lines, modern artwork, and hidden drawer storage rather than items kept on top of your desk.
Don’t Forget Decorations
Adding a personal touch to your office will make it feel less like an unwelcome part of your home and more like a cozy creative space. While too many decorations can make a small office feel cluttered, the perfect amount – like a couple pictures on the wall and a stylish rug – will bring life to your space.
