How to create office space in a bedroom
Decluttering is key to creating space, especially if you live in a small apartment or house. In the words of the wise Marie Kondo, let go of anything that doesn’t bring you joy to make more space in your bedroom. Think about it – do you really need that old sweater that you haven’t worn since school or that stack of storage containers piled full of stuff? Give anything you don’t need to those in need by donating it to charity.
Once that’s done, consider how much space your furniture will take up. Corner desks are a great option as they take up less room than standard types, slotting perfectly and discreetly into any vacant corner. Murphy beds are another practical choice as they fold up into a cupboard, creating more floor space and preventing the room from looking overly busy.

Speaking of cupboards, it has become a popular trend to hide office desks away in cupboards in the bedroom. Simply slot your desk and cork board in a closet for a mini home office that doesn’t impact the rest of the room.
If you don’t have a big enough cupboard, get a curtain or screen to create separate office and sleeping spaces. This will prevent you from getting distracted and climbing back into bed, which is a real temptation when sharing the space!
