For all those of you who are planning to make a shift and go for freelancing and wondering which corner of your house you can use as home office then here are few ideas that might be of help. If you are the one who is already into freelancing and work while laying down in the bed or using dining table/side table to work, these ideas might work for you. If you are living in a small apartment, some of the pinned below ideas might work in favor and you would love them.
1. Comfy Corner
You can transform a corner of your room into the home office. Ofcourse, initially you might find it challenging but then with the custom-built furniture you can define a space ensuring everything is at place.
2. Office in the Hallway
If there is a passageway or hallway in your home that is is wide enough to set a home office, go for it. Buy a sizeable workplace and a nice comfortable chair or stool to fit under the table when you are not using it. Hallway is a place which is not much used, so you can work without distractions.
If you have a big garage and a car that doesn’t occupy much space, you can use it as home office with zero distractions. All you need to do is spend a weekend and get the garage space and new garage doors well prepared for being your office.
4. Below the Stairway
If you have have double story apartment with stairway within the home, making the triangular nook beneath a staircase you home office is going to be a wonderful idea.
5. Within a Closet
Sounding weird, is it? This is one easy and renovation-free idea to get yourself a home office. Get the door of he closet removed, fit a tabletop flush with the walls and if you wish to, you can add shelves overhead for extra storage. If your closet is wide with number of shelves, you can open it up get a shelf of whichever length you want expanded and use it as your home office. When you are done, you can close the door of the closet.
6. Nightstand Office
Ofcourse, the nightstand with a nice lamp and a few books is an ideal corner for those of you who are suffering from space-crunch. But then for working with great concentration without getting tempting to hit the bed, you need to be really firm. This idea works well for workaholics!
Personally, I liked the garage idea. You can transform the garage area into your home office without bothering about distractions, rent, or anything that might prove to be hurdle.
