Everyone needs their own space, but not all of us have the luxury of having our own office. It is not uncommon for one or two household members to work from home. If you’re struggling to find a quiet and functional work space under one roof, here are several layouts to try out:
Face to Face Layout
This office layout has both desks facing each other-to maximize space in a small bedroom or office.
Side by Side on a Long Desk
Using a long desk and inserting drawers in between your chairs with office supplies, will not only be easily accessible to you both, but it will allow you to have your own space while also leaving the rest of the room open.
If staring at each other from across your desks is too distracting, put the them on opposite sides of the room. This will also clear pathway in between both desks.
Another way to keep the space open in your home office is by placing one of the two desks against one wall and the other desk by a window in an “L” shape to still have a functional work space, without the distraction of being face to face.
If you only have one desk but still want to create a private work space, consider sitting on opposite sides of a larger table.
