We all need to work from home from time to time. And just because you have a tiny place there’s no reason not to have a relaxing, functional and creative place to do the work you need to do – you can have a small workspace in your home.
Here are some favourite small workspace ideas I’ve used as inspiration for our mini-office in our home.
Keeping it simple – desks to fit into little nooks of space
Wall-mounted solutions that don’t take up floor space but keep things neat
Folding tables that do the job but can be tucked away
At our house…
I used to work from home full time, but soon found that too isolating so I joined a coworking space (more on that soon!). However, we still needed a place where we could both work (and play games).
Our solution is a solid wood breakfast bar/table with a corner office nook. We had a tiny bit of space to make use of so instead of just having one length of bar table, we had the piece of wood custom cut to fit the little corner. This is where Robert sits to undertake the very important work of building rockets to send little green men to faraway planets, and where I write on small space people!
We love the oiled wood which is developing character over time. We love being able to sit together to work at the same time. And we also love being in the same room as each other while we are working: I can be cooking while Robert’s flying to the moon and he can be making me a cuppa while I’m writing.
