Jumpstart Your Day: 4 Home Office Ideas Worth Copying
Work efficiently and be productive in the comfort of your own home
Working from home offers a great deal of advantages: no more traffic to deal with, you're in charge of your time, and you call all the shots. To be able to work efficiently, you need a space where you can focus and feel inspired.
Even if you have limited space at home, you can still transform one corner into a mini work area. Some of the factors that you also need to consider include: proper lighting, storage for essentials and papers, and a wall where you can hang notes and reminders. Here are four lovely spaces to take a cue from:
If you're thinking of setting up a work/study area beside your bed, you may opt for a slim table that you can place by the window. Use small square panel boards for your calendar and reminders. Maximize the space under the table by storing your boxes of supplies there. Free up some space on your table for notepads, pencils, and a desk lamp.
RL Tip: Consider painting one of your panel boards with chalkboard paint to create a mini reminder board.

If you have an extra closet at home, you may consider having a "cloffice," a closet-turned-office. It entails extra work but with a bit of imagination, you can create a functional and unique space.
With this idea, you can add shelves for books and other essentials plus a mini drawer, too! Make use of the wall by hanging a pegboard for notes and other materials. You can even make use of the doors by hanging magnetic boards and corkboards. The best thing about the cloffice? You can close the doors and lock everything up–keeping your space neat.

Turn awkward empty spaces like the one under your stairs into an office. Finding a desk that fits underneath shouldn't be a problem, but the real trick here is how to allot space for storage.
Deal with this challenge by having ascending cubby holes that resemble stairs themselves! Invest in a small file cabinet that can fit under your desk or beside it.

Corner spaces are great for home offices. Invest in an L-shaped desk or a customized piece that fits in the available space. This setup is perfect in a corner with a window so you can make the most of the natural light.
Maximize the vertical space by installing wall-mounted open shelves for books and other supplies. Complete the space with a comfortable and sturdy chair.
