Working from home has become a luxury that many people are enjoying. No more are the days of long commutes, crowded meetings, or small talk around the water cooler. Instead, you get to work from the comfort of your own home! However, to do that effectively, it’s important to make sure you’ve got a great office space. Concerned that your home is too small for an office? Nonsense! Even the smallest homes can have a home office, if you create enough space for them. Find out how in this article!
Updating Your Home
When you’re living in a small home, there’s a good chance that a lot of space is being wasted. There are some things you can do to update your home, be it on a DIY basis or by hiring a professional.
Declutter Your Home
This is a great way to get your home updated and ready for a home office. By clearing out all of the clutter, you’re going to free up space, which can allow you to get your home office set up! Decluttering can be pretty fun, too!
Now, this one seems kind of weird, right? How does updating an appliance help you make space for a home office? Well, older appliances tend to be large and outdated. A prime example is your hot water heater. Many hot water heaters today are tankless, which can open up plenty of space for you to store things, opening up space elsewhere in the home to make an office space. If you want to replace your hot water heater, be sure to get a professional, like Excellent PHM.
Free Up Your Guest Bedroom
If you’ve got a guest bedroom, you’ve got the ability to set up a home office. Even if your guest bedroom is used frequently, there are furniture options, like futons or murphy beds that will allow you to use the space for both purposes.
Setting Up Your New Office
The hardest part about setting up an office in a smaller living space is making it comfortable. Often, they end up feeling cramped. If you want to set your new office up the best way possible, follow these tips.
Find Furniture That Fits the Space
It’s important to make sure that you’re filling your office space with the right furniture. Make sure that all of the furniture fits, and that it doesn’t feel too cramped. There are plenty of AR programs that can help you plan the furniture for your room that use your smartphone camera! It’s easy, and it helps a lot with planning.
Minimal Decor That Enhances the Vibe
Decorating your office can be a challenge if you’re in a small space. Rather than filling the room with decor, it’s best to choose a few pieces that really enhance the vibe. Some great examples of this are crystals, indoor plants, and art pieces. Crystals are especially striking. They come in a variety of shapes and vibrant colors and can provide a calming, positive energy to the room that you can’t get from anything else. With so many to choose from, they really add to the vibe of any room.
Setting up an office in a small space doesn’t have to be a challenge! Just make sure that you’re making the most out of the entire small living space by updating things and rearranging. It can really make a difference.
