Wilkes Barre Pa Apartments – Small Apartment Office Space

Living in Wilkes Barre Pa apartments, whether roomy or small, can leave you with limited space for a home office area, for studying or for online work at home. The first thing to do is to look for that “dead” space in your Wilkes Barre Pa apartments, an area that lacks design inspiration, such as an extra wall, the window area, a dead end hallway, a room that’s just too small to be called a room (though I’d suggest making that a walk-in closet if you need closet space!). Or, like many Wilkes Barre Pa apartments dwellers, reconsider your dining area for conversion into an office.

This is a great example of making a fresh little office area from a dining space. Your small office will also serve to divide a large living room up into a more intimate space.

Once you’ve found a space in your Wilkes Barre Pa apartments for you small office, think VERTICAL! Use the walls for shelves above and around the desk area to hold books, magazines, folders, whatever reference materials you need for work or study. If your desk is small or short on drawers, unlike the one above, an investment in a two-drawer file cabinet for under your desk would be worth while. Important files and personal information can be stored in them, as they often come with locking mechanisms. Above image is of Vitsoe shelving by Dieter Rams. Vitsoe is a London based company with a New York showroom. These retro styled (original of the 1960s) shelves can be ordered online.

Above all, it is most important to keep your Wilkes Barre Pa apartments office area as neat and organized as possible. Make sure clutter does not accumulate, particularly if your desk is in the main living room or your bedroom. Use creative decor such as framed photos, artwork, or small vases to add personal touches to your small apartment work area.

Your Wilkes Barre Pa apartments office area can be a creative focal point in your living room, or bedroom, and not just a drudgery work space. Make it a unique expression with artwork and decor.

Another option: partition your little office area from your Wilkes Barre Pa apartments living room by creative use of shelves. Separating the space will free your mind from focusing on work.

Modern and minimalist…could fit into any small space!

Making a small apartment office space in your Wilkes Barre Pa apartments need not be difficult, but can become a fun, creative design challenge. Research some ideas and think out of the basic corner box.
