Working at home has a lot of advantages but some disadvantages, too, and I’m talking not only about difficult schedule organization. Creating a home working space can be a bit tricky: should we make it more formal? How then will it look with the rest of the space? How to organize a working space if it’s not a separate room? Let’s have a look at some practical tips that may help you.
Workspaces In Different Rooms
You can make a workspace in any room of your home where there isn’t much noise or not many people because other wise it’ll be difficult to work there. More often it’s a bedroom, where you can either sleep or work, and no one will disturb you. You can integrate a working space into the room decor choosing matching furniture and accessories, or divide the working and sleeping zones with a glazed wall.
Living rooms are other popular rooms to place a workspace there. A small working space with built-in shelves and a built-in desk can be easily placed in such a room and integrated so perfectly that you won’t even notice it. You can highlight it with lighting, accessories and rugs if you want or make it blend with the living room. The only problem about locating a workspace in the living room is probable noise if you have a lot of pets or small kids but if you can handle it, it’s ok.
A kitchen may be not the most comfortable place to work but when it’s not in use – why not? Perhaps, it’s not the best idea for those who work a lot but if it’s just about a couple of hours a day- it’s fine. Order additional cabinets like those in your kitchen and use them to build up your workspace. Don’t forget about additional lighting, it’s necessary.
A balcony if any is a perfect place to create a workspace – lots of light is guaranteed and you won’t be disturbed. All you need is to place a small or built-in desk and some shelves there, and a comfy chair. Enjoy the views and get inspired to work!
Functional Workspaces To Hide
If you can’t find a proper space or nook for your home office, no problem! Use a windowsill in any room or go for a folding desk and voila – you have a space to work! Get inspired by these ideas and organize a cool workspace wherever you want.
