Working from home more often these days due to COVID-19? Home schooling or about to start college by taking online classes? It’s important to have a dedicated workspace where you can focus on getting things done. We understand how essential it is to have an organized space where you can do computer work, paperwork, and more.
You might not have a home office currently, but you may have a spare bedroom that could provide the perfect space for an office. We bet you’ll to rearrange things, as well as move some furniture out of the room to make way for a desk, chair, and more. Using one of our self-storage units can help!
Time to Clear the Bedroom
The first things to consider when setting up a home office in the spare bedroom is what furniture can stay and what goes. While you may not want to move the bed frame and mattress out of the room, it might be necessary in order to fit your desk. If you have the space to leave the bed where it is and still move the desk into the room, then you can remove smaller furniture such as the dresser, nightstand, or wardrobe. You might need to position the bed differently so that you have space for your desk and chair.
Once you have the right furniture in place, you can decide on the proper layout for the room. If there’s a big window that offers plenty of natural light, think about where you can place your desk so that you get the most benefit from several hours of sunlight. Keep in mind, you’ll want to be near an outlet.
Keep Everything Organized
Organization is key when it comes to a productive workspace. If you have papers everywhere, or you can’t find the textbook you need for an upcoming test, your stress levels can quickly rise. Think about adding a small file cabinet or desk organizers that help you keep things contained. You might be using your home office for the foreseeable future, and the last thing you want is for it to become a cluttered mess.
You can also rethink how the room’s closet is used. If you don’t have space near your desk for a filing cabinet, you might be able to fit one in the closet. You may have to rearrange things in the closet so you can create the perfect setup for keeping things organized. You definitely don’t want to feel cramped while working, so the more space you can give yourself, the better.
