Create a Home Office Space In Your Bedroom

Green wall, wooden desk and home office space

Making a healthy, productive and creative workspace when you’re squeezing into the corner of your bedroom isn’t easy. Focus on space, comfort and style – in that order – to ensure you can do your best work (or any work at all, frankly!) from home.

Below, I’ve included everything in my home working set-up (or as close as I can find) plus some options for tiny spaces, small budgets and different styles.

All these brands and suppliers are still delivering during lockdown – but delivery times may vary.

The Desk

How much storage do you realistically need? If you’re fully digital, you might not need a traditional bulky desk with drawer space – a surface for your laptop might be enough.

Oak and white desks

My desk – from Made.com – is a few years old now and looks to be discontinued. Here are some similar styles…

Desks for small spaces

Need a solution for a small or awkward space? Try one of these smaller-than-average options – a fold-down desk is great if you need to work where you sleep as you can truly pack work away at the end of the day.

The Chair

Getting your office chair right is so important for your posture and comfort while you work – but most office chairs are bulky, black plastic monsters. Here are a few options if you want something to help you sit up straight, that won’t look out of place in your bedroom.

Lighting

It’s crucial you light your workspace properly to save your eyes, especially if you tend to work later in the evening. But if desk space is at a premium, go for an articulated standing lamp like the white and oak one I use – you can bend and angle it as the natural light in the room changes, without losing valuable surface space!

Storage & organisation

Paper trays, pen holders, drawer organisers – these little pieces can make a tangible difference to how well you work. I even like to have a ‘work mug’ that’s only for office-hours coffee! Trust me, every little helps…
