Small Office Layout Ideas
I live in a three-bedroom house with my husband, son, and mother in law. The three of us (My husband, son, and I) shared one room and a loft. The Loft area is our 2nd living room, and we also made it as a playroom and a office space.
The thing is, you have to make the best of what you already have, and this is what we did.
Even though the loft is not a big area, we still managed to fit in a living room, playroom, and my office space. It’s all about the layout and lots of natural lights. Thank goodness we have a high ceiling, and big windows, so it’s nice and bright, it made our loft look big.
Small Office Layout TIPS:
TIP #1 GET MORE NATURAL LIGHT IN YOUR HOUSE
If you don’t have enough natural lights coming in, try to hang mirrors on your wall, the shinier surfaces you can add to rooms, the more light will reflect into the room. And, as much as possible, place your desk by the window.
As you can see, I placed my desk right by the window. It helps me work effectively especially in the morning because of the natural lights. The light suppresses melatonin that your brain “Pineal Glands” produces, and this keeps you awake. Cool eh?
TIP # 2 USE THE CORNERS OF THE ROOM
Use the corners of your house for your office space layout. In this case, you are not wasting any space in your home, and it looks cleaner and organized.
Imagine that my desk is placed in the middle of a small room and with my big computer and other things. It wouldn’t look right, wouldn’t it? So, please try to use the corners of your house.
Also, when placing your desk in the corners, it will give you more space to walk around the room and more space for organization.
TIP # 3 USE YOUR WALL FOR DECORATION AND ORGANIZATION
This one is my favorite. Use your wall for decoration and organization. I use a pegboard to decorate and organize my things effectively, and it’s so much fun to create! Tip # 3 is where you can be creative, and this way it shows your personality and what you love.
I added some arts, and sayings on my pegboard and even a plant to give it that look that I’m going for. I like brightness and a little bit of pop of colors. Also, this made my office space layout look very modern.
The arts and motivational sayings I put on my pegboard keep me motivated when I feel lazy. Admit it; it’s not easy when you’re in a lazy mode to get back up on your feet and start doing what you have to do.
So, yah! Just need to find the things that will keep you motivated.
TIP # 4 FILE DIGITALLY OR USE A FILING BOX
File your paper works digitally and remotely. By doing this, it saves you a lot of space, and you can easily find things you need.
If filing digitally doesn’t work for you, try filing them in a box and label them accordingly. I bought my filing box at office depot, and I also use a label maker to mark them accordingly. I also use a separate binder for filing my most necessary things like my insurances, Electronic receipts “Just in case I have to return a product, then I know I kept my receipts in one place, Jewelry purchases, Eye exams “Since I renew it every year.”
So, do you get my point now? The separate binder is only for the things I need the most, and I file the marriage certificate, school stuff, taxes, and other things that I won’t be needing on a daily basis in a filing box instead.
TIP # 5 USE BOXES FOR RANDOM THINGS
Use boxes for random things like cords, chargers, etc. I like to keep everything neat and clean. You can also label those boxes so you can find the things you need fast and easy.
