8 Ways To Make The Most Of A Small Study Space

When working from home, it can be difficult if using a small office space. It is easy to feel closed in, cluttered and unmotivated. Use these simple but effective hacks to put your cozy office to its best use.

1. Purge The Clutter

First things first: be ruthless and get rid of everything you don’t need. This is an important step to being organized and optimizing your space.

2. Everything Has Its Place

To take advantage of a small space, getting rid of unnecessary clutter is essential. If you make sure everything has its place, it will prevent an unorganized and messy desk.

3. Lighting

When styling your study space, make sure you provide yourself with plenty of light. This will make the area appear more spacious and provide depth.

4. Vertical Space

Make use of the space above your desk or table through the use of a cork board or shelves. This will provide room to put bulkier or larger items on your horizontal space.

5. Take A Little Walk

Don’t be afraid to put supplies that you may need in a different part of the room. Just because it isn’t next to your work space, doesn’t mean it can’t be handy. Stopping and moving around whilst you work is a good habit to get into.

6. Be Unique

Bring your identity and personality into your study space. Unique artifacts or decorations will make the space feel more like your own.

7. Working By a Window

If you have the chance to locate your work space near a window, it can vastly improve the way you work. When having access to natural light, it can help brighten your outlook and make you more productive.

8. Comfort

A great way of improving your study space is to actually make it an enjoyable place to be. Choosing a comfortable chair or adding designs that make you feel happy will take your space from feeling like an area of obligation, to a place where you truly want to spend time.
