Our lives have become busier than what our parents had faced and most of us have hectic jobs. But we also have the liberty of working from home and that is why an office space at home is necessary. If you have that liberty and you are struggling to create a work zone in your small apartment then you will be surprised at the huge number of options available. Sometimes people living in houses also find it challenging to create a work space for lack of space. The trick is to identify corners that can become a savvy workstation.
Basic Home Office Ideas
In most cases we overlook what is right in front of us. Once you identify the space, you will realize the potential of that area and be able to transform a boring corner or an unutilized window to a professional work station.
1. Under the staircase
Do not miss this space. That triangular piece of wall can hold the details of your upcoming meetings and a floating shelf will be your desk. Pull a chair when you are at work and you are sorted.
2. The open window
The window in the middle of the wall can be a great if you place a small desk in front of it. A vase with fresh flowers, your laptop, and the stationery you need and some fresh air and light should help you think better.
3. The closet you never used
Your room has a closet and it is empty. Transform it into your office. The shelves will help you store all your papers and files and you can slide your chair into the bottom shelf. Close the door or draw a curtain and no one needs to know what is going on inside.
4. Work while your laundry is getting done. Most houses have the laundry room in their basement and much space is wasted there. Set up shop right beside your washer and drier and you can multitask.
5. Furniture can move and fold. Invest in furniture with wheels so that you can work during the day and wheel it away when you need extra space to party. There are desks available that can compartmentalize the chair or stool. Invest wisely.
There are several ways of creating a home office even in limited space. You need to think out of the box and let your imagination do the rest.There are also many wooden, foldable workstations available these days in the market that can be just set up at any corner of your house.
