How to Turn a Bedroom into an Office

Working from home can be a hassle if you don’t have a space where you can focus. If you have kids or animals having a private room away from the craziness can help increase your productivity. Despite the benefits of having a home office, many people struggle to obtain one due to a lack of space in their homes. If you don’t have a pre-existing spare room, then consider turning one of the bedrooms of your house into an office. With a little bit of remodeling, you’ll have a brand new private space to work in no time at all. Here are some steps you can take to help make this bedroom office possible. 

Design the Space Around the Size of the Bedroom

Depending on the size of the bedroom you decide to remodel, you may need to adjust your plans accordingly. While having a bigger space is preferable, it simply isn’t realistic for everyone. When designing your office, look at the pre-existing bedroom and think about what fits and what doesn’t. Invest in a properly sized desk or chair so you can give yourself extra space to stretch out your legs after a long day. 

Picking out Decor

In order to keep yourself excited to go to your home office each day, you should try decorating it to keep it from feeling bland. Put up pictures or knick-knacks on a shelf, so you have something to look at other than a bland wall. You could also try modeling your office after a certain theme, such as the ocean, or give it a rustic look. Find something that gets you excited to work.

Selecting a Desk and Chair

The desk you use and the chair you sit in every day are pivotal to a great office space. If you’re not comfortable, then the workday is going to be exponentially more stressful for you. Having to strain your neck or not having enough desk space may seem like little things, but they start to add up. Leaving them unchecked can lead to irritation and will leave you dreading going into your home office each day.

Adding Storage

Every office should have storage that its person can take advantage of—getting a desk that has drawers or a shelf to put papers, books, and other things on can help the overall tidiness of your space. 

Proper Lighting

It’s terrible for your eyes and your brain to always be working in the dark. Getting a strong light and even a lamp can help reduce eye strain whenever you’re reading or writing. The strongest light in the room shouldn’t be coming from your monitor.
