How to create a home office in your small space>

If the nature of your job often leaves you working from home, it’s important to give yourself a comfortable space to work in. This can often be hard to incorporate into small spaces without invading your space.

Here are some great ways to create the perfect area for your home office…

Divide and Hide

A great way to incorporate an office space into your home is to use room dividers. This will allow you to make the office space feel and look more private and will also allow you to hide it away from the rest of the space. 

Corners & crevices

It’s important to try and get the most out of the small space and that means using every part of it effectively. Corners often go to waste in a small space but there is plenty of corner furniture which can help you utilise them. Corner desks are great to use those corners to make a great space for your office area. Tucked away, they don’t invade the rest of the space.

Fold away

Fold away desks allow you to keep the space tidy and clutter free. Foldaway desks can also be used as a console tables in some cases when the desk area is folded away and out of use. You may also choose to have a desk which you can store away in a cupboard which you can get out only when you need. This means that even in the smallest of spaces you can still have an office space when required

Use the wall

Similar to using the corners, using the walls serves a great purpose for desks. These ladder desks are a great way to keep your office space minimal and to avoid it impeding on the space any more than it needs to. For seating, use a chair that can be folded away to save even more space.
