How to Create a Home Office Without Losing a Room

Even with the pandemic restrictions loosening and people returning to the office, many people are still looking to spend at least some of their workweek working from home.

Many homeowners are considering creating a home office, but they don’t want to lose any rooms in the process. It’s true that it can be difficult to find the right home office design without taking up too much space or money.

But we’ve got some great tips for you to help you create a working space if you don’t have a whole room available.

Find some unused space

First off, think about what type of work you’ll be doing from home and whether it requires a lot of space. If not, then there may be an unused room in your home that would work perfectly as an office space. 

For example, if you have a home gym or playroom that isn’t being used all the time, then it could be converted into your home office space

Another option is to convert one of your closets into an office nook – this will free up valuable living space elsewhere in your home! 

There is a range of fold-out desks available on the market that are specifically designed to fold away into closets, allowing you to literally pack your work area away at the end of the day.

Use the Harry Potter solution

The space under the stairs is an often overlooked area of the home and can be an ideal space for your home office. If you’re not a fan of working in the gloom then there are home office lights available that can be used to brighten up your work area.

Obviously, this kind of solution is rather cramped and can be problematic if you’re a particularly tall or large person. 

It’s also probably not the best solution if you permanently work from home. However, it can be the perfect solution for those with limited space who only work from home once or twice a week.

Repurpose furniture

The most obvious solution is to simply repurpose your existing furniture layout into a home office. It’s also extremely easy to repurpose your existing furniture into this kind of home office. 

All you need are a couple of simple desk tidies, a stand for your laptop, and lower-back support, and your dining table can quickly be turned into a home office.

Utilize your outdoor space

If you happen to be lucky enough to have a summer house or garage, these can be easily transformed into a dedicated home office.

A home office can be easily created by utilizing home office furniture sets. These come with all the items you need to be delivered right to your door. All you need to do then is set your home office up in your outdoor space and you’re ready to go.

There are a few additional things to take into consideration, such as the availability of power, heating, and lighting, but especially during the summer months, outdoor spaces can make excellent home offices.

If you’ve run through all of the ideas above and can’t find space for any of them, it might be time to find a new property with enough space for the home office of your dreams, and the first step to doing that is finding a great realtor.
