5 Tips to Create a Multi-Tasking Home Office

July 27, 2016 1:27 am


Did you know approximately 40 percent of employees telecommute to the office?

Remote work has made the home office a necessity for many of us, but without space to spare, dedicating an area for work can be difficult.

Enter the multi-tasking office—not only functional during working hours, but also practical for a range of activities, from entertaining to exercising.

To make a multi-tasking office in your home:

Use every square inch. Work with the room’s existing layout—tuck a desk into an attic dormer, for example, or convert a closet into a workspace.

Divide the room visually. Cordon off work space with curtains, a folding screen or partition, concealing other areas of the room not in use while “at the office.”

Look up. Make use of wall space for maximum storage. To stay organized while the room is not an office, install layered shelving on just one accent wall.

Go mobile. Attach locking coasters to the desk and other furniture; this will make moving pieces simple when it is time to repurpose the space.

Double up. Turn the space into a guest bedroom—take a break (or host clients) on a compact daybed that doubles as a sofa, or install a stowaway Murphy bed against the wall.
