Home office spaces can be a nightmare if you do not have enough space and you are working out of your bedroom whilst lying in bed. This is not only very uncomfortable in the long run but it is also very counter-productive. You do not need to invest in expensive office furniture, but you at least need to have something decent to sit on and work from besides a bed and a couch.
A lot of people think that you need to have a lot of money and a lot of space to have a great home office, but this is not true. You can accomplish a lot with a little bit of money and a little bit of space.
And making your own home office can also be a very fun DIY project that will get you excited about working from home and keep you motivated during the long and often lonely days. Making your own home office storage space can be a very fun and rewarding experience and is also very cheap when compared to buying home office storage space.
Small Storage Boxes And Pen Holders
Making small storage boxes is easy and simple because all you need is thick cardboard, glue and some nice decorated paper to cover it with. There are various designs available on the internet and in hobby shops that will provide you with an easy pattern to trace and cut out. This entire project will take less than 30 minutes and is fun and easy and cheap.
Pen holders are another great project to make. You can make these out of almost anything, from clay to paper to metal clips and anything in between, because every office desk needs small storage spaces and pen holders so that you never run out of pens.
Office In A Closet
An office in a closet is another great project to do if you have a small walk-in closet. Simply place a desk in the cupboard with a chair and then decorate the inside of the doors with shelves, notes and motivational posters. And as simple as that you have an office in a closet that will keep your work and private life separate.
Floating bookshelves are also very easy to make and provides a lot of extra storage space for all of your files and books and notes. Floating bookshelves can be bought ready-made from hardware stores or interior stores or if you are feeling more adventurous you can make them yourself.
You can also paint the shelves any color that you want to suit your color scheme and likes. And all you need to put up these shelves is a drill and a few bolts and there you go.
