I always dreamed of working from home. To have a simple office, not too big but dedicated space created just for me. As this unexpected situation locked more people at home forced to work from home we are looking for a bit of room where to place a small spare office desk or we browsing the websites to quickly purchase one. I ended up in the same situation, we had to leave our apartment where I had a tiny corner of mine, where I had everything that I needed and found myself to set up a workspace where I can quietly work from home. I round up a few budget-friendly home office necessities to make your space your own and be productive.
As a true minimalist, I want to use everything that is already at home. It can be re-purposed, as my mum’s old sewing machine. If you have an old table what you wanted to dispose of for a while now, think again, it can get a fresh new coat and used as a centrepiece for your new home office. You could save some money and create less waste in that way. Win-win.
Dining chair can be used as an office chair at least for a while, and some rug can be placed underneath the table to make it a bit cosier together with the little plants. They also add the structure and colour to your comfortable working place.
I choose the mirror to double the size of the room so we don’t feel like in the small box.
Vintage or Modern Style
It is everyone’s personal decision. I love white interiors but opted for a bit of colour at that time as it warms up place. When you style vintage with a modern piece it will create uniqueness and a personal touch. You can find loads of inspiration on Pinterest and I picked something for you as well. Over here I found a nice round-up of vintage and small offices.
Whatever style you go for, make it yours, where you going to love to spend your days, afternoons or evenings. Where you work or side hustling.
