Some of the items you should consider for your office space include:
- Compact Desks
- Small Filing Cabinets
- Corner Desks and Chairs
- Freestanding Shelves
- Multipurpose Storage Cart
Below, we're going to look at the benefits of each one in more detail so you'll know exactly why and how these pieces of furniture will be beneficial to your small office space design plan.
When you're working in a small office, utilizing every inch of space available is going to be vital. That's why you'll want something like a compact desk. You may see companies outfitting working spaces with big desks that take up half the room, but this isn't going to be what you are looking for when square space is limited.
What you need is something small and yet practical. A compact desk with a flat surface to put your laptop on, and perhaps a shelf above to put any pictures is going to be your best option. This isn't going to take up a lot of space, and you will still have room for everything that you need.
Small Filing Cabinet
Everyone needs a filing cabinet in their office so that they can keep everything from records to receipts neat and tidy. The last thing you want when you already have limited space is a mess.
A small filing cabinet will come in handy by allowing you somewhere to put all your files, with the added benefit of having compartments so that everything can be organized. It doesn't matter if you get these new or used, as long as you have sufficient space.
Corner Desks and Chairs
If you don't like the idea of a compact desk, you can get one that fits nicely in the corner. These are available from many online stores, so finding one shouldn't be too difficult.
You will find that these also come in handy when you are trying to make the most out of your space, and if you want to get one custom made to fit exactly in your wall, this is something that you can look into. Get a small chair to go with this, and you will be able to fit more items in your office.
You still need somewhere to keep all of the papers that you need on a daily basis. A filing cabinet is only going to hold so many papers, and you need to be conserving this space for important documents.
As such, you need to get some free-standing shelves. You can move these about as you wish and they can fit in quite small spaces as they are not very deep.
Multipurpose Storage Cart
Finally, you are likely going to need a printer, or scanner at some point during your job. Investing in a small multipurpose storage cart is going to be a great choice here because you will be able to fit your extra devices in with no fuss. The good thing about this is that if you want to get rid of your printer/scanner at any point, you will have some free space, but without your office looking messy.
Places to store your items is going to be crucial when you have a small office to avoid it looking messy and cluttered. So, if you are about to select furniture for your small office, these are five of the best pieces that you should consider.
