As modern working patterns develop, more and more of us will find ourselves working remotely…basically we will be working from home. A source of happiness for many or misery for some, that is for another article. In this one, we will be bringing you some small home office ideas, something to help you consider the options you have.  

Why you may ask? You will be surprised to learn how many people don’t have a dedicated space to work from. This may be down to issues such as cost, or more likely, space. However, there are many cost-effective solutions out there that minimize the footprint required, yet deliver a fantastic and functional space.

Focus and creativity are the main reason to consider making room for your home office. Let’s face it, you will become more productive and efficient. No more lying in bed to compose emails or brushing aside the crumbs from your toast.

The biggest reason though is that it allows you to separate your work space from your living area. There are no constant reminders about impending deadlines or masses of paperwork on show. The work and living environment are separate, that can only be a positive for your mental health.

In this post, we will consider a number of small home office ideas that should provide you with some options on what is possible with the space you have available.

This is a dream home office to many…simple and clean. The window makes this a great space, a welcome distraction but also a source of natural light. The great thing about this set up is the fantastic amount of storage, yet the footprint of the space used is actually quite small. If you have a back wall available, this may well be a great idea.

Similar to the image above, this is pretty much the same set up. Plenty of desk space as well as shelf storage. It looks like this space may well be in a hallway or similar, which just goes to show that you can create work spaces in areas that you wouldn’t necessarily associate with work.

This is probably my favorite space…the amount of functional space available is incredible. It also makes use of space that is often associated with clutter, which can only be a positive thing. Add the fact that this work space can be closed off, it is a perfect small home office idea…all at minimal cost.

A more casual set up, it works well. Everything you need whilst being quite relaxed. I can see this set up integrating effortlessly into the overall style of the room.

Being short on space…or lets face it, not wanting to dedicate a large amount of space does not mean that it is not possible. This little set up provides a space to do what you need to do…should you need to do it!

A very dedicated and professional space…i imagine some serious work is done in this space. Obviously, it is designed to be this way and the space works well. It is roomy with plenty of natural light, this isn’t a space that will feel claustrophobic after a while.

I love how this space is designed to have a personality of its own. Settling at a desk and a couple of shelves was clearly not an option. The walls have been wallpapered and the decor is suitably thought out.

Minimalism at its finest…this simple home office fits this space perfectly. Little to distract, it is a stylish space that works really well. I love how the furniture pieces have an edge to them…very contemporary indeed.

This space is almost incidental and you may not necessarily associate it with a home office. However, this is a great little work space with a minimal footprint.

Desk…chair…job done. It really can be as simple as that.

A desk overlooking a window is perfect. Aside from the benefits of natural light, it can be a distraction when required to break the monotony of your day. Obviously, the cat is an optional extra.

Sliding doors are a great idea for home offices. Once closed, your work day is over. Thy also return your home back to its purpose without your work space becoming a distraction. Trust me when i say that it is a positive move from a mental health perspective. You need to remove yourself from work mode.
