Getting a bit tired of working from your couch or the kitchen table? Many people in Albuquerque have been working at home for a few months now, and that may be necessary for a while longer. Working from home may end up being an ongoing situation for many workers. So what do you do if you don’t have dedicated space in your home for a full-fledged office? Don’t despair, just get creative! To help get your creative juices flowing, here are a few trending ideas that may inspire you.
Since our lives have changed, maybe there are some things in your closet that can be thinned out to make room for some office space. Can you move it all to the garage or attic? Maybe you can bring in some cash and sell it on E-Bay? Better yet, donate it. You can gain a lot of usable space in your closet if you clean it out and organize it. And you can find many ingenious ways of converting that closet into a functional workspace.
You’ll need to creative juices to organize your items in your closet office. An easy solution is to run shelves up the back of the closet. Adding a rail for hooks will let you hang pencil holders and other items off your desk. A pegboard can also be a creative way to add space and let you store what you need.
Back yard office kits are becoming more popular these days. If your back yard has enough room, this may be an ideal solution. If you have enough money to spare, Kanga Room Systems and Modern Shed offer solutions starting at $5000. These companies can ship standalone structures that can be assembled by homeowners to keep their home offices separated from their living spaces. Studio Shed officials say they’ve doubled their sales over the last year. In April alone, their sales were four times it was a year prior. The company’s units start at $10,000. This may seem like a lot of money, but it’s still more affordable than renovating your home.
Since you may not be hosting as many guests these days, maybe it’s time to think about turning that space into an office. And you can still use that room to house guests if necessary. A Murphy bed will give you both a desk and a comfy bed for visitors.
An entire room is not required to have a home office. You don’t even need to have room for a desk. A wall-mounted desk can fold down when you need it.
