Where should I put my desk if I have no space?
Space issues can be a common bother, but fear not! Just because your space is small doesn't mean your productivity needs to be. Let's tackle those home office woes.

How do you fit a desk in a small room?

Positioning furniture skillfully in a small room becomes a game of strategy. Optimally using available open spaces or making use of multi-functional pieces of furniture will serve you well.

Consider investing in a foldable or wall-mounted desk that can be tucked away when not in use. Alcoves or under-utilized corners can also make excellent micro-office spaces where you can set up your small desk. Corner desks and L-shaped desks will utilize these spaces perfectly.

Compact desk solutions, such as a floating desk or a convertible desk, may further save on floor space. Organization is crucial to creating a clutter-free workspace. Utilize vertical spaces for storage with tiered shelves or wall-mounted organizers.

How to create an office space when you don't actually have room?

Space restrictions can foster creativity! An office need not be a separate room; it can pop up in unexpected spaces in your home. You may want to consider a corner of your living room or a section of your bedroom if those areas aren't in use throughout the day.

For those in extremely small spaces, a closet office might be an offbeat yet practical solution where the closet doors can even be shut at the end of the day, allowing work to be 'out of sight, out of mind'. A table against a wall can also suffice as your office during the day and be repurposed during non-working hours.

Where to put an office when you don't have a spare room?

Spaces like hallways, landings, or even an under-the-stairs area can be repurposed into a cozy office nook. Optimize these areas with a compact desk and chair, and voilà! A den fit for your productivity.

For the ultra-space-savvy, what about a mobile office? By using a small table on casters, you can move your office to wherever there's free space at a given moment.

Where is the best place to put your desk at home?

Lighting and focus are crucial; therefore, near a source of natural light is the best place for your desk. Placing it perpendicular to a window can reduce distractions while still offering ample light.

Remember, ergonomics matter in office planning. Consider factors such as the height of your chair, desk, and monitor, and adjust them to avoid neck or back strain. Leaning towards ergonomically designed office furniture can promote better posture and reduce fatigue.


Effectively utilizing your space can turn the smallest of corners into a productivity hub. Venture to think outside the box when deciding where to put your desk and look for furniture that complies with your needs, all while keeping in mind the importance of comfortable and ergonomic solutions to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
