Are you in a small office space and want to know how can you make the most of it? Read our tips for making your space work for you.
If you’re lucky enough to have windows in your small office space then keep the blinds up, curtains open and let as much natural light in as possible. If you’re struggling for natural light, then create your own with lamps and special daylight bulbs. Another thing to consider with a small office is SAD lighting, helping to create a warm, bright room with positive energy.
Now we’re not talking about knocking down walls here, but there are clever tricks that can deceive the eye and create an illusion of space. Mirrors are your best friend for bouncing light and reflection, ensuring your small office space maximises its potential and feeling of space.
Fold away chairs and tables are a god send when it comes to limited space. If you don’t need extra chairs and a table everyday you can just get them out when necessary and fold away neatly when not in use. Vertical storage is also a great idea as it increases your floor space, allows you to make the most of the wall space.
Keeping your work area clear from clutter and mess not only creates an uncluttered mind, but it also helps with space saving. If your guilty of keeping unnecessary things (pens that don’t work, the book that’s never seen the light of day) then be ruthless. Adopt the use it or lose it mentality and keep your small office space free from things that don’t enhance your working day.
Keep things simple but personalise your space in creative ways. Small office spaces don’t have to be a sacrifice, make your room work for you and see your productivity and happiness climb!
