How to create a home office in a small space
Smart solutions to make small scale workspaces...work
When space is at a premium, the idea of a home office may seem like a luxury - but it is possible. The secret is seeing spaces differently. With a bit of planning, that unloved under-the-stairs alcove or dark and dingy bedroom corner can become your new working-from-home workaround. We'll show you how...
The sideboard to study switch
Double up what you use your desk for
Multifunctional furniture should be your go to - something that works as a desk but doubles as a stylish piece of storage when you've clocked off. In this pintsized pad, our Scandi-inspired Copenhagen desk can moonlight as a dressing table - smart eh?
The 'under the stairs' study
Make awkward spaces amazing
That sloped ceiling is perfect for slotting in a slimline desk and some staggered storage. We've popped a small two-draw unit on one side of our lovely leggy workstation, and a larger shelving unit on the other. You can use the lower ceiling as extra wall space for tacking up important to-dos.
The reading corner
For when you don't need a desk
Some times working from home doesn't require a desk - perhaps you just need a quiet space to read, take a call or collect your thoughts. A comfy chair is priority here - we've popped ours next to a handy cube storage unit.
