Whether one likes it not or not, most of us do wind up working from home from time to time. And while some of us do have the comfort and luxury of having home offices, libraries, or studies where one can get down to work whenever needed, others are lucky if they can even find enough space to fit a desk into apartments that barely fits their bed.
Architecturally-minded designers who are experts at turning cramped rooms into comfortable, functional spaces have few bits of advice as to how to carve out a workstation in a residence that has a daunting lack of square footage. Read on to find out what they have to say:
Maximise the given wall space:
Use of ceramic wall tiles along with using built-ins and bookshelves help small areas. The same also gives an opportunity to display work-related items and personal collectables, making it a strong focal point for a room.
Use furniture that works double time:
In an area that is tight in space, a desk can be used for more than just work. Try a multi-purpose desk that has a marble look tiles top and can serve both as a work surface or a vanity area to increase the functionality of the whole room.
Vertical limit (less) :
When there is not enough space for a full shelving unit it is suggested to head onward and upward. This means to use and take advantage of the height of the room. This way one can maximize storage for documents, books, and other work-related goods, allowing you to utilise more of the desk space.
The matter of the fact is that we do need technology and to save up on space going wireless is the way to go! Use a piece of furniture or a nearby closet placed beautifully on a ceramic wood tile flooring to house bulky items such as printers and scanners to maintain a sleek and clean work space.
So what if working from home is a pain, at least now your workspace at home is some motivation to get up and finish that brief!
