EIGHT CREATIVE HOME OFFICE SOLUTIONS
August is dwindling down, as is the summer. This means that back-to-school time is upon us. Does the student in your life have a study space? Are you in need of office space yourself? Check out these nifty ideas to get the creative juices flowing!
Nook and Cranny
Have an empty nook or niche that you have no idea what to do with? Install a couple of sturdy wall shelves, a small filing cabinet, and a comfortable office chair. This creates a great office space if you don’t already have one!
Home Office Hideaway
One neat idea you can try is installing a small cabinet with a drop-down leaf into the nook to save space. If you have more space, you can use a dresser with a drop-down leaf as well. This is perfect for offering desk space, and serves as a great tool to help hide your office away when not in use.
That adorable table you have in your hallway for decorations and lighting the way? With a roll-away chair, you have the perfect office area right at your finger tips, no other office furniture required!
A barely-used closet could just be the perfect place for your student’s study area or a home office. Remove the closet door, add a couple of shelves and wall art, and you’ve got yourself a little home office. Don’t want the whole world to see your office? Add a shower rod and curtain to the door frame.
If your office needs to be on the move, perhaps you should think about more mobile options. Purchase a small wheeled storage unit to keep everything organized while you’re on the go in your home. Do you pay bills in the kitchen, but scrapbook in the living room? This home office solution could be just for you!
Entertain This Idea
A great space-saving idea is using a small entertainment center. The cabinet areas that come underneath are perfect for storing office supplies, a printer, or files. Cables getting in the way? Add a handy basket in the middle to keep your home looking tidy!
Home office furniture doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. In fact, you can find home office furniture at flea markets or yard sales. Someone could be selling an old sewing machine table or something of the sort that you could use. If you don’t like the condition the item is in, you could always upcycle it so it shows off your personality.
Do you have more than one student in your home, or need to share an office area with a loved one? One idea you can try is creating double desks. This is easily doable by butting two tables against one another. Not enough space for that? Try getting a double-sided bookcase. Install an extended shelf on either side, and you have a space-saving double desk!
