Fitting Home Offices into Small Spaces



Office furniture,office storage

More people than ever are now working from home, which makes creating a calming and efficient home office more crucial than ever before. And, many of those fresh-faced graduates, entrepreneurs and empty nesters looking to pad the nest egg are clocking in at their kitchen tables because of a lack of space.

Here’s how to organize and arrange office furniture and supplies in a way that keeps your work life out of your home life, even in tight areas:

Just Add Sun

Interestingly enough, one of the most important factors (or at least, one that influences your productivity the most) is how much light you receive, and what kind. There’s a good chance you’ll feel much better about your at-home job, and life in general, if you can arrange the desk near a source of natural light so your office furniture and workspace is well-lit while you work. Consider what kind of drapes you use as well, so you can regulate your vitamin D intake as needed without too much effort.

Desk Duty

Your actual work tabletop should be free of debris so your laptop, notes, journals, spreadsheets and whatnot can be arranged as needed as you work through your projects. It’s always tempting to store things right on your desk – after all, you never know when you’re going to need paper X or notebook Y. But, in fact, you usually do know when you’re going to need that stuff; it’s more a matter of establishing good storage habits and having the tools to get the job done.

Clear away the clutter with desk organizers, shelves, bookcases and filing cabinets that fit your space. Wall-mounted shelving may work better than under-desk storage, or vice versa, and a lot of office furniture comes outfitted with clever storage options. The trick is finding the system that works best for you.

Inspire Yourself

No home office is complete without a little inspiration. Of course, this isn’t like Cube City and you should have personal touches around every corner in your own home, so the key is finding the right balance between inspiration and distraction.

In fact, the home office – whether it’s an actual office or a temporary workspace in the heart of your living area – is best kept lean and clean. Screen off the TV so you can focus, or move to an area with less temptation.

Keep these ideas in mind and you’ll find home office furniture and storage that will help you get the job done quicker so you can relax more.
