When you are in a small apartment, be clever with the space you have. Make the most of all the nooks and crannies, alcoves and corners, even the cupboard. Get clever with living tiny. We divide our list of Home Office Set Up into Medium and Small. Depending on the space you have to work with, pick the best office set up to suit you.
If you are fortunate to be living in a big apartment and have more room to spare, try our medium home office set up. By room we don’t mean taking up a spare room. Although if you have one of those, it wouldn’t hurt. We still insist that you want to be clever with the extra space you have, making the rooms dual use. This might be a corner in the living room, dining or bedrooms or even an alcove or storage cupboard.
We also have a handful of balcony conversions, medium-sized balconies that have been turned into offices and workrooms. These not only offer you a great view from your apartment where you work but plenty of light and air, if you open the windows. Use heavy drapes or blinds to cut out the light if it gets too much. Also, think about air conditioning or heating for the summer or winter seasons.
Here are twenty-two medium home office design ideas.
