The Smartest Ways to Carve Out a Home Office in a Small Space.!!
Sure, it’d be great to have a dedicated home office with ample storage, space for supplies and a proper desk setup—especially if you’re all about that work from home life. Oh, and room for one of those funny engraved desk plates too. But few of us have the square footage for that. And yet, we still need to put in that work. So in order to make it happen, you just have to get creative and try carving out a home office area in one of these clever ways.
The easiest way to steal space for an office is by taking over a spare closet. Think about it: A reach-in closet is roughly the same size and depth as a small desk. So you can just push yours in there. Or even better, mount a slab-style shelf that’ll function like a desktop, add a chair or stool and call it a day. You can include more wall-mount shelves for supplies and remove the doors if you want easy access. Or use the door(s) to keep the space hidden—and as another surface for hanging maybe a file folder holder or something to that effect.
Have an empty corner? Turn it into an office. Seriously. To take up as little space as possible, you can use an L-shaped desk or even something triangular if you can find it. I usually tell people to put a floor lamp or plant in an empty corner, but if you need the workspace, by all means, take it.
