When it comes to office design, a small office can very easily become a difficult to work in if it is incorrectly furnished and becomes a cluttered, uninspiring place to work. There are so many ways to make your small office a less cluttered and claustrophobic working space, with so many different design options and office furniture that can benefit your small space. We’re sharing some of the simple ways you can make the most of your small office.

Scale down your office furniture…

The standard desk size could be a little too large for your small office space, and you want to make sure you are maximising and squeezing out everything you can get from the small space you’re working with. There are thousands of different office furniture designs, including smaller desk shapes and sizes to ensure you can get the most from your space without having to compromise.

Going for a desk that is around 600mm vs the standard 800mm will leave you enough room for office essentials and is a popular size choice for a smaller space to make sure you can still have a functional workspace at your desk whilst space saving.

Make your office storage as digital as possible…

When you are working in a smaller space it is so important not to let it get too cluttered and finding alternative ways to store important documents and files should be essential, as this can easily get out of hand. Utilising your online storage options is essential for reducing the amount of paperwork you need around you in your smaller workspace. There are so many safe and secure options to choose from that not only protect and hold thousands of files, but also will free up your physical surrounding space.

Keep cables clear…

Keeping cables clear in your small office space will not only help with keeping the aesthetic tidy but is a big safety precaution that needs to be taken seriously in smaller office spaces, as the risk is higher to trip over wires or for the wires to become tangled, damaged and ultimately dangerous. The best way to keep cables clear and create a safer, less cluttered environment in your smaller office space, is by using wall fixings for cables to ensure they run seamlessly, and using wireless connections to your devices and computer will reduce the amount of cables needed, reducing messy tangled cables and safety hazards.

Use aesthetics to boost your environment…

Small offices can be dark and dingy if you don’t create a positive aesthetic, which can be as simple as adding plants and enhancing your natural light in your smaller space. Natural light is essential for promoting productivity, motivation and positive moods, so try to focus on enhancing the amount of natural light you get in your small office, and then add homely, comforting touches to your surrounding areas to create a personalised surrounding that will ultimately enhance your work rate and ethic by boosting your mood in a settled environment.
