Your bedroom should be your sanctuary – the place where at the end of the day you can get relaxation and a good rest. For this you need to keep the space clean, luminous and the air fresh. Open the window as often as you can and avoid accumulating litter around your bed. There are few things you…
Even though you may not be a freelancer or someone who bring home office work, a place for you to place a computer and work when necessary proves to be useful more often than you would think.
Do you have a small apartment and you don’t have an extra room to dedicate to this activity? Well, let us tell you that there are options that work in this situation, although, considering you will have to use some place from another room (it’s not magic, you know), you have to pay attention not to be discordant with the rest of the decoration.
The core of the space will be, of course, the desk. Go for a reduced size desk and orient yourself towards a piece that has multiple drawers. With something like this, you will also solve part of the storage issues. Although many of us dream of massive leather chairs, you will have to make a compromise here; instead, go for an ergonomic chair, one that’s also very comfortable.
Of course, drawers help you only so much with the your storage needs and, as you can’t fit a large piece of furniture, make the best out of your walls with mounted shelves. Besides the obvious functionality, mounted shelves can also prove to be a very nice decorative structure, if you place them right. You can opt for simple wooden pieces placed on metallic supports, or small boxes placed symmetrically or in a studied disarray. Of course, you can choose a classic look in one color, or you can play with multiple tones for a more spectacular effect.
The best place to settle such a mini-office would be near a window, since natural light has a resting effect and is kind to one’s eyes. Otherwise, choose lighting ensembles that don’t occupy much space and allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.
The most important thing when it comes to a makeshift office is keeping it tidy. This way you will have all the necessary things at hand, and it will not alter the overall look of the room in which you have placed it.
