You need a home office, but you only have a small space in your home for your work. However, that doesn’t mean you have to give up on your dreams of having a dedicated space to work from home. With a little creativity and the right design, you can turn your small space into a stylish and functional home office. Keep these tips in mind to make the most of a limited area.
Your space might be small, but you can still dream big when you’re designing your home office. When you schedule your free in-home consultation with Royal Palm Closet Design & Fine Cabinetry, don’t be afraid to let our designers know what vision you have for your home office. Don’t focus on your small space. Instead, focus on how you want to feel each day when you walk into your newly redesigned office.
When you work with a professional service, you’ll have the assistance you need to balance your dreams, your space and your budget. However, your designer will be able to help you the most when she has a clear vision of your style and expectations.
Avoid Wasted Space
When you’re working in a small area, you can’t afford to waste any space. This is why custom cabinetry is the perfect choice for offices that aren’t very spacious.
If you know that you need a lot of storage in a small area, take advantage of all your space by adding custom shelves to your walls and custom cabinets that reach all the way to the ceiling.
Your desk is usually one of the biggest items in the office, but you can get creative with this by choosing a desk that fits perfectly into a corner. You can even choose a custom desk that can be pulled down from the wall, and then put away out of sight when you’re not using it.
Add Personal Touches
You want to avoid clutter when you’re working in a small home office, but that doesn’t mean you need to have a minimalist feel in your workspace. You don’t want to fill every inch of the room with knick-knacks, books or accessories, but a few well-placed pieces will make a big difference.
You’re going to be spending a lot of time in your office, so you want it to have a warm, personal feel. Add some of your favorite black and white photos of your family to the walls, or accent your desk with a scented candle. You don’t have to spend a lot on accessories to make a big difference, and adding personal touches is what will really make your home office special to you.
The staff members at Royal Palm Closet Design & Fine Cabinetry are ready to help you create the perfect home office space. Whether you need a few custom shelves for storage or you’re interested in overhauling your entire space, please contact us today for a free consultation. We look forward to working with you!
