Recently, people have been transitioning to remote, freelance work or are working as freelancers in general. Working on a laptop in bed is certainly nice, but it’s not a long-term, convenient, or productive solution.
If you have a separate room in your house for an office, you’re lucky. But in apartments, a workspace is usually not planned ahead (unless it’s your individual project), so you have to add it to the existing rooms.
- Three options for organizing a workspace: living room, balcony, kitchen (with the risk of looking into the refrigerator too often). Alternatively, you can use a guest room if you have one.
- How to fit a workspace without reducing space?
Niche. Many apartments have wall niches that are usually reserved for decorative elements, but they can be used more practically to fit a small desk and install several shelves.
- Closet. Place the desk directly in the closet – this is a great option for those who have little space in the room or have decided to create a workspace in the bedroom. This way, you can hide your workspace when necessary by simply closing the doors.
- Windowsill. The space near the window usually does not serve any function, but you can organize an interesting workspace here. This way, you won’t lose square meters and you will have a comfortable workspace with excellent lighting.
- The main thing to consider when organizing a home office is ergonomics! Make sure to have a comfortable chair, a work desk of the right height (between 68 and 76 cm), and proper lighting.
