Over the last year and a half, a home office has gone from an extra perk to a must-have space. This means that many of us have had to do some decluttering, rearranging, or even interior remodeling in order to accommodate.
If you’re still working on a lap desk in the living room or at the dining room table, you might be struggling to figure out where you can set up something more functional. We’ve got a few suggestions for spaces in your home that we think would make a convenient and productive office!
Let’s start with the most obvious space for a home office—an extra bedroom. A designated room is ideal for an at-home work area if you have the space to spare. If you have more than one extra room available, choose the one that is most conducive to your preferred work environment. For those who need a quiet workspace, for example, choose the room that is the furthest from your home’s busy common areas.
Working underground may not be your immediate first choice, but when you think about it, a finished basement has a lot to offer in a home office. You’ll have plenty of space to work with if you prefer to spread out while you work or want to create a lounge area for breaks, as well as more privacy and seclusion than a room on one of the main floors. Just be sure to set yourself up with enough light, as a basement can get dark and dreary pretty quickly.
If you’re lacking in extra rooms and space in general, a closet can easily be converted into a cozy work-from-home space. All you have to do is remove the pole and doors, install electrical outlets if there are none nearby, and furnish with a compact desk, chair, lighting, and cute décor, and you have your own little office nook—perfect for those tight NYC apartments!
Don’t have a full room to spare? You can still create a functional office space with just a portion! Any corner or nook in your bedroom, living room, or kitchen can become a dedicated workspace with a few tweaks. Just grab a sleek desk, cute (but supportive) chair, some wall shelving for supplies, and you’re all set. If you’re prone to distraction, a hanging curtain or room divider can complete your designated home office section.
