How Can I Pull Off a Tiny Office In An Already Tiny Space?

custom chair matA growing number of working Americans are taking to working from home. But for those who live in an already-small apartment or home, it can be difficult to optimize your space to fit an office.

Fortunately, when it comes to a home office, your needs are ultimately simple. All you need is a designated space to place your computer, room for files, and a place to sit.

Here's how you can manage to pull off a tiny office in an already-tiny space.

Use your walls
You don't necessarily need a room when you're working from home. If you have available wall space, use it to your advantage.

Consider getting a floating shelf that's wide enough for your computer. Floating shelves are great because they don't take up any floor space. What's more, they come in a variety of sizes so you can position one wherever space is available.

Clean out the closet
Closet offices are becoming increasingly popular. They allow you to close the door on your work at the end of the day. They also let you use the available room that you already have.

If you don't have a lot of things going on in your closet already, consider hosting a garage sale or moving things around to make room for an office. You can install floating shelves or even a tiny desk in the space.

Don't force yourself to stand
It may seem like a good idea to forgo a chair and stand at your kitchen counter while you work. But standing for long periods of time can have a detrimental impact on your health just like sitting for long periods of time.

In fact, work-related musculoskeletal disorders cost workers between $45 and $54 billion every year. Rather than forcing yourself to stand or sit, get yourself a comfortable chair. 

Sit for a certain amount of time and then stand for a certain amount of time. This will help keep you feeling happy and healthy no matter where you work.

Professional office chair mats give you the added comfort of a professional office experience without taking up any additional space.
