The good news, however, is that regardless of the size of your office space, there are plenty of ways you can make the most of the room that you have.
To help you create an office that’s smart, stylish and practical. As well as somewhere that makes the most of the space available, I’ve put together this guide. Take the below tips and advice on board, and you can create an amazing office that you love.
Opt for a pull out desk
If you’re going to run a business from home, the chances are you’re going to need a fairly sizeable desk. However, if your office space isn’t that big, this could be an issue. Instead of trying to squeeze a large desk into a small room, consider getting creative. How about opting for a pull out desk? This would give you a small desk that would always be set up, with an area underneath that you could pull out should you need more space to work. Or, if the room has a built-in wardrobe, take advantage of it and transform the interior of it into a working space, complete with a desk and shelving. There are plenty of tutorials online for how to do this. It’s a popular option for making the most of small office spaces.
Be smart about storage space
There’s no two ways about it; you are going to need plenty of storage space in your home office. If space is limited, it’s important to be smart about storage. The good news is that thanks to advancements in storage design, there’s sure to be an answer that’s perfect for your space. Whether that’s having built-in storage drawers on metal drawer runners that can be pulled out. Or whether it’s having on-the-wall storage, it doesn’t matter. What’s important is that you find a way to ensure that your office space has plenty of storage space.
Use every inch of spare space
Last but not least, aim to use every inch of spare space. If there’s spare space, take advantage of it. There’s nothing wrong with having storage under your desk or mounted on the walls. If you want your office to be a smart, practical place, it’s essential that it has plenty of storage space. If you’re stuck for ideas, have a browse online, you can find plenty of inspiration. Smart storage is available for all sorts of spaces, so make sure to take advantage of it. If you want an office that’s practical, this is crucial.
