Organize yourself well and have everything you need at hand even in a small space, its possible! There is no magic formula but surely by applying a series of ideas and your imagination you will be able to create a small but comfortable and efficient office in which to develop all your talent.
Use the color in your benefit
The color helps us visually expand the space or on the contrary, subtract meters. The simplest option for a small office, is to choose light and bright colors that help you give a greater sense of spaciousness. Whites, creams and crudes are ideal for your office to look bigger and also to help you have greater luminosity. But pastel shades can also be a good choice. The roof is another element that we can use to our advantage. If we paint it white or the same color as the rest of the walls, we will gain meters.
The chromatic unit of space also helps, especially with white or lighter shades. If the table is light and also in the same color as the walls we will achieve the effect of a much more transparent and less overloaded space. The furniture that rests on the wall in the same color that this tab helps creates that effect.
Light table in a small office
The minimum possible furniture and always to be able to be nothing heavy or with too dark tones. But you cannot miss a good work table, better than just enough to not overload. For this reason it is better to opt for the lighter materials visually, such as glass or metals on the legs. Tables with thin metal legs or glass that help to let the view go through and give depth. Thin panels and in light colors to be able to be confused with the walls. Boards not too thick to avoid being heavy.
The straight lines are perfect for small spaces as they do not overload. Or the transparent plastic chairs or metal skate-type legs. It is also important to eliminate from our space everything that is not necessary to achieve even more space and keep what is really useful. The goal is to let the view go by to gain meters!
Choose a good chair
The office chair is very important, since we will spend many hours sitting there. Therefore it is important that they are comfortable, breathable and fit well to our needs. Too stiff chairs are not beneficial for our back if we have to spend many hours in them. Although in many of the images of home offices we see lounge chairs we recommend that you look for an office chair if you are going to spend enough hours in it. Your health and your back will thank you.
Take advantage of the light
Light is key in decoration but if it is about winning meters … even more! Let the light invade everything. Placing the table under the window is always a good idea. We lighten the center of objects and also give prominence to the windows, where all eyes will go when entering. The curtains are also made of light fabrics that let the light pass well.
If we do not have natural light we should try to find an adequate lighting and for this the best thing is the use of different types of light, of course, but also standing and some auxiliary light on the desk for more meticulous work. Light will help us create a wider space effect, so we should not forget about it.
Lots of order
Having everything in place and well ordered will help us not to let the space fall on us and look much more open and spacious. For this, it is best to reduce the necessary objects as much as possible and to clean them periodically, eliminating all the superfluous items that we have not used in recent months. At the work table, better only the essential. But also help us with drawers and low cabinets, shelves on the wall and everything that can help us gain space but without being heavy.

Adapt it to you

Also, that is made to our measure or at least as much as possible. Family or travel memories, a special calendar with pictures of friends, that mug that makes us smile or cactus.
