World's Largest Selection of Decorative Switch Plates

Optimize your studio apartment for work-from-home options

Being able to work from home is an exciting opportunity. But if you live in a studio and don't have the luxury of a home office, it can be challenging.

So how do you take advantage of flexible work with such limited space? Whether you work at a desk or at the coffee table, there are many ways that you can make your alternative workspace more functional.

Start by rearranging
If you've never worked from home before, you may be due for a furniture rearrangement. Perhaps your desk is on the side of the room away from the window, or maybe you don't have the space for a desk. Either way, it's a good idea to set up shop close to natural lighting. It'll be easier on your eyes and you can enjoy a fresh breeze whenever you want. However, position yourself so that the computer faces away from the window - you don't want to deal with the glare on your screen.

The surface that you work from doesn't have to be a full-fledged desk if the room is too small. But, the convenience of one can't be overlooked. Even a simple lap desk that you can use in bed or on the couch can make your work routine easier, especially if you're juggling a laptop and paperwork. 

Redecorate the room 
If you stretched your interior design muscles when you first moved in, chances are, there are a lot of visual distractions that might be detrimental to your work. Loud patterns and bright colors might be great for a space that's only used for living, but definitely aren't ideal for getting a day's worth of work done.

This doesn't mean that you can't decorate, but be careful not to go overboard. Opt for small but impactful pieces such as switch plates. Whether you prefer to work during the day or at night, these decorative covers will no doubt inspire you, no matter where you're sitting in the room. Look for simple artistic ones, such as Art Deco or textured brass. 

Mirror these designs by featuring the details on other accent pieces. Curtains with a similar pattern or a throw pillow of the same color will make the design more cohesive and show off your design skills while motivating you to focus on your work.
