Tips To Turn Your Small Space Into A Big Home Office #sponsored

Home Office Ideas: How to create a big home office in a small space #sponsoredCheap Is The New Classy

As you all know, we have one child. Our home has 3 bedrooms. I work from home – so what to do with that extra room should be an easy decision, right? Wrong. It’s pretty small. I think the actuall dimensions of it are 9×9 or something similar. We had it as a home office before but any desk configuration I came up with seemed to suck up the whole room. I just didn’t love it. Enter our hero Staples.

Home Office Ideas For A Small Room

Staples offered to hook me up with some seriously awesome furniture for my office. And this girl is no dummy so I said “YES!” I have been wanting a home office for so long and there are no office experts quite like Staples.

Here is the home “office” {aka place to pile stuff} before. We had painted this room one time when I intended to use it as an office. But, honestly I felt so cramped in there that we quickly stopped using it as an office and it turned into more of a pantry/room to pile stuff.

Here you see patched spots where we are prepping to repaint. Also, be sure to pay attention to the really small window {the only one in the room} and that very over piled shelf in the corner with school supplies. It is leaning back – partly because there was carpet under it and partly because it had WAY too much stuff on it. This is now all remedied. Oh, and there was some epic horrific-ness going on with that carpet. The hubs tore that mess up and now there is nice new tile.

Home Office Ideas: Try An L-Desk In A Small Home Office

If you have a small office but need a lot of work space, I highly recommend the Sauder August Hill L-Desk in Oak. I chose this desk because I like a lot of work space but I don’t want a massive desk. The desk I had before was a traditional teacher type desk which had a large work surface but I couldn’t reach half of it comfortably anyway. So, it took up a lot of room, without really being helpful.

The Sauder August Hill L-Desk works great because you can put it in a corner or you can have one side to the wall. Personally, I didn’t want to be in the corner and I dislike my back to the door, so that is why we chose this placement for the desk. Also, the l-desk gives you a lot of usable work space, both in front of you and beside you. I like this because I can look at my calendar and use my laptop without moving anything.

This l-desk also comes with a drawer that holds hanging files! Yay! Now there is no need for a filing cabinet which saves more room. You also get a shelf under the desk so that you can hide everything underneath, leaving your work space free for the stuff you need now. You can also hide your cords with this desk if you like, but I move my laptop from room to room so I just leave it showing so it’s easier to move. If I get a desktop, I am totally hiding the cords.

Home Office Ideas: Save Room With A Tech Pier

In my old office configuration, we had the printer on the desk. The desk was massive, so it didn’t impede my work space, but it didn’t look very nice. So, we chose the Sauder August Hill Technology Pier. The tech pier is great because you can have all of your printer needs in one space. We put the printer on top and extra paper in one of the drawers. There are two drawers and two shelves, so I am sure you can find something to do with all of that space.

No Office Is Complete Without Organization

Some people use excel and online calendars. I use paper. I am definitely a visual person and I need my plans right in front of me. To keep track of money coming in and out, I picked up the Quartet 4 Month Dry Erase Planner Board. The one on Staples’ website looks a smidge different than the one I picked up in stores, but it’s basically the same thing.

I also chose some Quartet Natural Cork Tiles. If you need a cork board but don’t want to have a massive board on your walls, these are a great compromise. Plus, they are really inexpensive. I used 3 under my dry erase calendar for post it notes and then put 3 down the side of my tall shelf to hand my press badges on. My daughter whined for the rest. You parents know how that goes. 😉

What office is complete without coffee?

Home Office Ideas: Make It Your Own

I had this cool old bookshelf that I really wanted to use in here, but I wanted some crates so that I could use it for art supply organization. So, I used some crates that we painted and Mason Jars to separate and organize all of our art supplies. A lot of the supplies came off of the tall shelf, so that cleared it up a bit, too.

To make the window look bigger, we attached the rods 12 inches past the window frame on each side.

We also used the sea shell lamps that we found at a yard sale and rehabilitated to give the office that beachy feel that the rest of our home has. Nothing inspires me more than feeling like I am on vacation.

We hope you liked our home office ideas for a small space. Please let us know if you have any other suggestions.

  37. Marisa Walton says:

    Everytime I redo my office, I have to move it to make room for a new nursery! Oops!! Decorative storage is where it’s at for me now, as I had to make an make-shift office in a pass-through area. Loving the Household Essentials® Banana Leaf Magazine Rack, Natural!

  42. chris z says:

    I would like to have the Hoover® Air Purifier 100 -it would help air quality from the pets

  43. Jessica H says:

    Printer ink and toner! I know it’s not the most exciting answer, but the price has been so crazy lately. It makes it hard for people like us who run a small business. Thanks for the fun giveaway, your office is gorgeous!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Thank you so very much. And you are right. It can be pricey to run a small business.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I hate that your oven broke. Hopefully you can get that resolved soon without too much expense.

  89. Since I am a teacher I would love to have any of the basic school supplies on the Staples website. Simple things like pencils, paperclips, paper, and a new pencil sharpener would be a huge blessing for me!

  90. I went to and I would love their printing services. My fiance and I are getting married in September and printing services come in handy with weddings!

  97. I would gift this to my daughter for college supplies. She is starting this fall.

  98. Hi – I just bought that desk from Staples and it’s supposed to arrive in the next couple of days. I’m not a homeowner yet and I’m planning to be in this apartment for about two more years, after which, of course, we’ll have to move. How do you think this desk will come apart? Will it be easy to move or take apart (partially)?

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I am quoting from my husband who put the desk together, “You could probably take it apart partially, just be careful because the cam locks are tough to get back tight once you loosen them.” This is just our opinion on what we *think* the situation may be. So you definitely want to consult with Staples’ customer service because we haven’t actually ever taken it apart and we own our home so we may never take it apart.

  99. I love going to Staples and checking things out. I would probably put this towards a new tablet. My tablet broke and I miss it dearly. I have been thinking of splurging and getting the Microsoft Surface RT.

  100. Melissa S says:

    I would love to have the Balt® Lapmaster™ Laptop Desk, the one I have is falling apart.

  101. Daniel M says:

    seems like i always need printer ink and paper

  102. I would like the 2COOL Sleek Chill Stand with Keyboard for Laptops. I use my laptop a lot and it tends to get hot – this would be perfect for constant laptop usage.

  103. Susan Smith says:

    I would buy our printer ink. We go through so much of it now with two kids in school. Thanks for the giveaway.

  104. Susan Smith says:

    I love the makeover. I like the k-cup dispenser and the desk. Everything matches and fits so nicely.

  105. Jill Myrick says:

    THe makeover looks great and I love the new desk that you chose.
    That is the color and style of desk that I would love to have in my home office.


    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Thank you very much! I definitely love the desk much more than others that I have owned in the past.

  106. Jill Myrick says:

    I also love the look and style of the Bush Fairview 60″ L Desk in Antique White from Staples.
    I have always loved lighter colored furniture and think that it brightens up a room.


  107. My stepdad’s birthday is coming up. He graciously gave my mom his computer chair as hers was making her back hurt, so I think I’d buy him a new one.

  108. Cheryl B. says:

    I love the
    HP Officejet Pro 8610 e-All-in-One printer…I somehow managed to hurt mine to the point it won’t print anymore.

  109. June Snyder says:

    I like the practical decorating tips on this site.

  110. Theresa D says:

    One item I like is the Safco 12-Compartment Radius Front Desktop Organizer. Our home office desk could use some organizational help and this item seems perfect.

  111. Annemarie Z. says:

    I like the Tensor® 3-Light Incandescent/CFL Floor Lamp, Black Steel! I would like a new lamp for my home office area.

  112. Diane Baum says:

    HON® 34000 Series Single Pedestal Desk

  113. Katt Lewis says:

    Royal® 29320C 12″ Laminator. I ‘d really like to have a laminator again. Laminating cheap paper printed pictures brings out the color in them.

  114. Jennifer Reed says:

    If I were to win this gift from Staples I would stock up on the Gaiam® 25.36 oz. Stainless Steel Water Bottles for the upcoming school year. My kids need them.

  115. Katt Lewis says:

    I like the desk, especially for my small space. And the table the printer is sitting on is really nice.

  116. Claire D says:

    I’d like to try one of the fancy digital video recorders they sell. I’ve never owned one so I’m curious how much use I’d get out of it.

  117. Claire D says:

    I really like the idea of having a coffee maker in a home office that doesn’t need to be cleaned. So convenient!

  118. I would like the Apple iPad mini with Wifi 16GB, Silver it is on sale this week $279 a great price

  119. Brian Kautz says:

    I would love to get the Otterbox Case for iPhone. I received an Iphone for his birthday.

  120. Betty C says:

    I need a new office chair. I like the look of the Office Starâ„¢ Super-Ergonomic High-Back Fabric Task Chairs

  121. Betty C says:

    I really like the items you chose for your office makeover. I especially like the Sauder® August Hill™ Technology Pier. My printer current sits on a tiered end table, not exactly a real office look.

  122. christine burd says:

    I would like the Apple Ipad 16 GB with retina display . We are going on vacation and this would be so nice to have along so that I can check email and web sites.

  123. Our home office needs a few things, like some new office chairs. I really like the Staples Stinerâ„¢ Fabric Managers Chair, Black.

  124. cylina williams says:

    I would get the new Ipad or the Ipad mini, we are always in need of a new tablet. My kids are always stealing mine!

  125. cylina williams says:

  137. I am interested in Staples because it will help me supply my granddaughter’s first dorm room at college. She needs not only paper splies but extras like a college dorm fridge. Love Staples and use them to laminate all my grandkids special artwork and honor s that they have received.

    Well, as odd as this may sound I would like Home Styles King Lafayette Sleigh Bed. 🙂 We really need a new bed(we don’t even have a headboard) and this is so pretty. I think after 24 years of marriage it’s time to get a new bed. 😉

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Don’t feel too bad. Although we have a new mattress and frame, we do not have a headboard either, lol.

  139. Julie W says:

    I love the Tech Pier! That is EXACTLY what we need since we got rid of our desktop computer/big computer desk and each of us got laptops. Right now, our printer is on the floor & our scanner is in the closet.

    My home office is a mess. I could definitely use some help getting it cleaned up.

    I like what you did with the small room. Really like the desk as it gives you a good amount of working space

  145. Kelley Roach says:

    I would love to get the Otterbox Defender Series Case for iPad, Black. My husband received an Ipad for his birthday. We have two young kids, so it’s been dropped a couple times, but luckily has survived. The Otter Box cover would be awesome!! 🙂
