THE HOME OFFICE HURDLE:
HOW CAN I MAKE IT FIT?
Don't Cut Corners
We all fall head over heels for a piece of accent furniture that is stunning and also comes along with spacious storage features. Some of us though, can get a little carried away. These spacious pieces usually are larger than other regular furniture, causing more space to be used in the apartment in the long run. If you have a nightstand, ottoman, side tables, etc., all with storage features, do you think you are actually using all of them? For myself, I realized I had some things stored here and some things stored there. Take a look at your space and get rid of furniture that you don’t necessarily need. For example, if you have an accent table that has a few drawers full of things, transfer those materials to other storage spaces with room (dresser, closet, nightstand) now you can make space for an office desk!
The Entryway Exception
Instead of the expected chest or console table (which is usually unneeded storage space). Find a small office desk with a great accent chair to cozy up and make the entry more inviting. I myself have been obsessing with accent chairs and look for any opportunity to fit them into my space.
White for the Win
Compact spaces are the most likely to look cluttered quickly. Sticking with light tones will help to make your small nook look clean and more balanced. Need more pop? Break the monotony of white by adding a patterned wallpaper or floor tiles but stick to the same family of colors.
Current Montgomery's office obsessions 🗄📎
The List of Essentials that I provide is my personal style “steals”. I choose style steals that can be budget friendly “quick grabs” to design your space. While I do try to choose style steals that are good quality, please keep in mind that these are inexpensive products and purchasing great quality furniture is always more recommended and better in the long run.
That's all for now...
The Montgomery’s team and myself hope that this helps you create a plan to add a small home office you have always wanted! Did we miss something? Got questions? Ask below! We will be happy to direct you for your styling needs, our design team here is quite impressive!
