5 Home Office Ideas For Small Spaces

With the world being all topsy-turvy, having a space at home where you can get work done is a must! Over the past few years, I've realized how important a nice, functional workspace is.

(The option to) work from home is becoming increasingly popular, and if you're anything like me, if my workspace isn't great, I cannot for the life of me focus on anything but fixing it.

Here are some great pieces to make your home office a space you wouldn't want to leave.

5 Home Office Ideas For Small Spaces



Height-adjustable standing desk

Light wood height adjustable standing desk with laptop on desk

Sitting all day? This height-adjustable standing desk is small enough to fit in most spaces; it has hooks to hang your headphones, bag, or cables and an easy console for height adjustment.

I have one in my home office, and it's 100% improved how I work. Your back will thank you for having the option to sit or stand with the press of a button.

You also burn more calories standing than sitting; just saying...



(Gaming) chair with footrest

Gaming chair with extra details showcasing features

If you're going to sit most of the day, make sure you sit in THIS.

It might not be the most sophisticated-looking chair, but it's supportive, it has an adjustable lumbar cushion that vibrates, an adjustable neck pillow, and it comes in different colors.

If you're anything like me, I can't sit 'normally' in a chair for long, my feet are up within minutes, and this one has a retractable footrest. Hello, comfort!



File Cabinet

White cabinet with two drawers

What's a home office without storage options? If you have limited space, check out these storage ideas for small spaces for some inspiration.

What I love about this unit is that if you don't need it for your office anymore, you can use it in your bedroom, living room, or bathroom.

There are multiple color options, and if you buy more than one, you can place them next to each other for a bigger top surface that can act as extra packing space.



Dual monitor stand

Dual monitor stand with computer, tablet, phone, books, and stationary on top

Let's count all the great things about this dual monitor stand.

You can fit two monitors on here, and there's space to stand a tablet, put your phone, and add a pen; the length is adjustable, the angle customizable, and you can fit books and a stationary organizer underneath the shelves.

There you have it, a million great things. Sold.



Desk Organiser

Desk organizer with file rack and drawer for office supplies

Keep your papers, files, books, and stationery in this desk organizer.

I'm a fan of the minimalist lifestyle, so if I can avoid drawers and cabinets, I do. This organizer has just enough space for the necessary officy things, and if this becomes too small, I know it's time to declutter and scale down.

If rose gold isn't your style, fear not; there are a few other color options.


The Bottom Line

A home office doesn't need more than a desk, a chair, and some organizational pieces. It can be a simple setup that's cheap and doesn't take up a lot of space. Here you can curate your pieces, pick your colors, and mix your styles. Find inspiration and create a space you love so it won't even feel like you're working!
