Living in a small home can make you creative in a hurry. For many apartment dwellers, there isn’t the luxury of separate rooms and each piece of furniture needs to serve multiple uses.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t be as productive or show off your individuality as much as in a larger workspace. It just means you have to get a little more creative. And here are a few ways to do just that…
Get the smallest yet most functional furniture possible. A giant mahogany desk may well be a part of your working from home fantasy but it’s just not going to work in a tiny space.
Think about what you want before buying stuff that you won’t use
Don’t buy a thing until you know exactly what you want. Good home office solutions start with a measuring tape, not $500 worth of useless storage boxes.
Divide your workplace from your living space
Put something, like a closet, in between your workspace and your living space. It helps when your work life is separated from your private life
Room with a view
There’s no reason a little sunlight should cramp your decorating style. Set a desk and chair in front of a window and fill an empty corner with a tall bookcase. Keep the furniture in sync with the existing pieces, so it blends seamlessly with the entire look.
If your workspace is still feeling a little too impersonal and stifling, look to others for some guidance. Innovative designers and inventors are always coming up with new ways of looking at office space. Seek them out and get inspired. Pinterest is the perfect place to start.
Being stuck in a small office space isn’t a prison sentence. Rather, it’s an opportunity to think outside of the box and make the space your own. You may just find that, with a few personal touches, you actually like the space better than your corner office.
Here are some home office inspirations that can certainly nourish your imagination 😉
