4 Simple Ways to Fit a Home Office In Your Bedroom

Think your home is too small for a home office? Think again! Here are some simple tips from the experts at our Calgary home furniture store on how to create a mini workspace right in the comfort of your own bedroom.

Whatever you want to use it for, be it running a business, paying the bills, or some simple reading, the design of your home office is extremely important.

Taking the time to create a well-thought-out space has many benefits, including:

  • lower stress levels
  • enhanced productivity
  • fewer distractions

This can help you stay organized, motivated, and productive. However, if a home office isn't used often enough to justify a dedicated room, or if you chose location over square footage, it's still possible to make a home office part of your house without sacrificing style or productivity.

Top Tips For Creating a Functional Bedroom Office

For many people without a dedicated room, the ‘home office’ usually ends up being the bed, the kitchen table, or the sofa. The good news? With some careful planning and clever design ideas, you can transform many nooks, crannies, and unused spaces in your home, especially your bedroom, into unique workspaces.

Here are four easy ideas for creating a bedroom home office:

1. Make Your Nightstand Do Double Duty

A compact side table or desk can work as both a nightstand and a very convenient work-station. To make your space as productive as possible, don’t forget to add small home accessories, including a(n):

The dedicated chair and area rug help you separate your "work zone" the rest of your bedroom. Plus, using the end of the desk nearest to your bed to store your alarm clock, lamp, phone charger, and decor means that these items can also be used while you're working.


2. Create A Desk In Your Bookshelf

You can’t have a home office without a desk and one of the best ways to make the most of your small space is to carve a desk into your existing bookshelves. Simply remove a section of your shelves to house your computer and other accessories for a work desk that is always surrounded by inspiration.

TIP: Remember to add a miniature sliding door so you can cover up your workspace at the end of the day. This will help you relax and unwind and ensure you’re not constantly aware of any looming deadlines!


3. Tuck In An Office At The Foot Of Your Bed

Most people put a sofa or bench at the foot of their bed, but why not make that space work a little bit harder? Adding a petite writing desk is a unique and innovative way to give yourself a productive area without cramping your bedroom.


4. Consider A Secretary Desk

Also known as a drop-front desk, these are known for their distinctive design features: a writing surface that is actually a hinged lid that folds up when not in use. Secretary desks have a very compact shape that is conducive to small spaces such as your bedroom.
