Small home office can be arranged anywhere, thanks to contemporary technology. However, people like to create a small home office with comfortable desk and chair and functional storage space in a quiet corner, in the kitchen or bedroom or under a staircase.

A small home office design can be created in your living room or even dining room which you do not use very often. Existing furniture can be adapted for storing documents and everything you need for working from home. Open wall mounted shelves are convenient for office storage and can be quickly cleaned and redecorated for a special event or holidays.

The most important elements of small home office design are electric outlets that are accessible and sufficient for adding good lighting and your computer equipment.
