5 Ways to Squeeze a Home Office into Your Tiny Flat

Working from home when you have no space to set up a home office can be tough, but it’s not impossible! Here are five ways you can squeeze a home office into your tiny flat.

  1. Make the most of your bay window
    If your bay window currently lacks a purpose, it’s about time you make the most of it. One way to utilise it is to turn it into a space-savvy mini office. It’s not an ideal solution if your equipment takes up a lot of desk space, but on the plus side you definitely won’t be missing natural light.

  2. Use the windowsill
    If you don’t have a bay window, worry not! You can turn your standard windowsill into a small home office by mounting a desk on or around the window, turning the area into a cosy work zone. For an extra nifty touch, employ a thin drawer unit as your desk. It will not just make for a savvy home office but a great storage solution as well.

  3. Opt for multifunctional furniture
    One of the best ways to save space at home without compromising on your favourite activities is to invest in multifunctional furniture that can transform from one thing to another. Whether you’re setting up a study space for your kids or a home office for yourself, look out for beds and other furniture items that can be turned into desks during the day.

  4. Use partitions and dividers wisely
    Everyone loves partitions these days, but not many people know how to make the most of them. Instead of installing a partition or divider with no other use than to segregate areas of the home, build your home office into the separation itself. This has the added benefit of giving more life and dimension to the overall space.

  5. Tuck the desk away
    If all of these ideas still take up too much space in your tiny flat, a home office that can be simply tucked away may be the solution you’re looking for. Whether it’s a foldable desk or one that can be pushed into the wall at the end of your work day, this style of home office is sure to take up zero space when not in use.
