Remote work and job flexibility continues to rise in 2019. According to Forbes, remote work has become standard operating mode for at least 50% of the U.S. population. One of the perks of working from home is the ability to create a home office. But how does one create such a space when you live in the city and space is limited? I did some research and found some unique solutions that may just work for you!
If you have a spare bedroom, then you are among the lucky ones with enough space to accommodate a roomy, full-service office space.
Convert a Closet
Remove the doors, add some shelving, pull up a chair, and Voila! – a home office that doesn’t take away from your square footage.
Use an Interesting Room Divider
Have a fairly large living room? There are many unique room dividers that would serve as an interesting accent piece, while also providing separation when entering work mode.
Utilize an Empty Wall
A floating shelf can serve as a desk and all that’s left is to pull up a chair. Wayfair has some options for hanging, floating desks that take up minimal space.
I saved this one for last because I’m a believer that your bed should be your sanctuary and work should be left out of the bedroom, but let’s face it – city living sometimes leaves you with no other option. Get a nightstand that can double as a desk.
