  • The COVID-19 pandemic thrust many of us in a sudden work-at-home setup. While some were already prepared with their decked out workstations, most families, especially those who live in small spaces, found it hard to have a dedicated workspace that inspires productivity.

    How to fit a workstation in a small space

    While having a dedicated space for your job is important to ensure maximum efficiency, some of the essentials you’ll need can put a dent on your budget. Not to mention, it might take up a lot of space.

    On our parenting community, Smart Parenting Village, moms shared photos of their workstations, plus how they were able to make it fit in their small bedrooms and homes.

    Choose a multi-purpose desk

    Choose one with drawers

    If space is limited, you can keep your supplies inside drawers. It makes your work area look neat, too!

    Or a floating one

    If you need to save up on space, you can opt for a floating desk just like mom Ten Razol’s. You can even DIY it!

    Add shelves

    A hanging shelf provides extra storage space, just like in mom Mary Grace Macatangay’s work area.

    Build a loft

    A loft is perfect for small rooms because it maximizes the area. Mom Leah Lumabad was able to fit a “his and hers” workstation under their bed. It can also be used as a study space for kids!
