With working from home becoming more common than ever, it’s become important to have a designated home office space, even if you don’t have a spare room. Although this may feel difficult in the smallest of homes, it is possible to have a workspace—even without an office. Here are some ways to incorporate a home office set up into your living space, and work comfortably.
Optimize Your Bedroom
If you don’t have a home office, you can always convert your bedroom into an ideal office setup. Murphy beds are one way to save space by creating more room for a desk and are a great organizational solution. If you want to help eliminate bedroom clutter, and create more floor space for an office desk and chair, consider replacing your bed with a Murphy bed, or a bed with a built-in desk, as a space-saving alternative.
If you don’t want to change your bedroom furniture, but want an easy home-office solution, consider incorporating a fold-down desk into your bedroom setup. When you are not using the desk, you can fold it lengthwise or widthwise if you are concerned about saving space. And the best part? It’s easy to store; simply use a wall-hanging storage system, or use shelves as part of the support structure.
Use a Desk in Your Living Room
When living in a small space, it may not be possible to find a dedicated room for a home office. Consider using your living room as a home office space by adding a desktop in front of the window, or a small desk next to the couch or TV. If you use tall cabinetry or bookshelves, you can also divide up the space so the room doesn’t feel cluttered and instead feels multi-functional.
