A home office is now our new reality; at least for the time being. When you’re working from home it can be difficult to tune out the distractions of daily chores and household needs. Creating a go-to work zone will help you regain that focus. If you live in a compact apartment and are struggling to find a place to work, let us discover a few home office ideas you may apply to create office space within your existing home.
Home Office Ideas
You can create a home office anywhere in your home. If you don’t have a dedicated room, you can still squeeze one into your home. Reconsider every nook, corner, closet, or room, basement, or the space under the stairs, wherever.
- Introduce a Desk
A well equipped and organized desk can help establish focus and enhance productivity when transitioning to working from home. You may convert an existing desk, dressing table, or console into a workstation. It is advisable to place the desk near a window so that your work area is always naturally lit and minimum extra lighting is required during the day.
- Declutter a closet for your office needs
Did you ever think of converting a closet into a home office? You may remove all the shelves from an existing closet and by installing a floating shelf that can work as a desktop. All that would be required is to make arrangements for electrical points and adequate lighting.
- Bring in a Portable Table
If space is a constraint and you can’t have a table stationed in one place, then opt for a laptop table on wheels. You can use a small folding laptop table which can be kept on the bed and folded when not in use.
- Wall-mounted table
You may incorporate shelves on hooks of a wall and consider a foldable table for your laptop/desktop which can be folded back and closed when not in use.
- Office in the Entryway
If there aren’t many visitors coming to your household, you may set up an office in the entryway. If the space is narrow, start with a huge mirror: It’ll make the hallway feel wide and invite natural light.
- Dining Table as Desk
This design works for most of us. To get the look, adopt a minimalist design scheme and keep clutter tucked out of sight.
With work from home being the new normal many people are scouting for bigger homes now to accommodate a separate workspace in their homes. A 2 BHK home for a small family cannot generally accord a separate space for work; buying a 3 BHK would make a huge dent in the pocket too. To meet this demand for some extra space and yet fit into the budgets of most people, developers have come up with a concept of a .5 BHK added to the 2 BHK configuration.
Avon Vista in Balewadi is one such project from the Naiknavare group that offers 2.5 BHK flats in Pune. These homes are cheaper than a 3 BHK home yet giving you extra space for your work from home arrangement. Offering world-class amenities, these homes are easy on your pocket too.
These were some easy and handy home office ideas to creatively utilize your extra space more productively for home office purposes and if your budget permits you may even book yourself a 2.5 BHK in Avon Vista with less dent on your pocket.
