Tips for Arranging Office Furniture In a Small Space

Small Space Office DeskIf you are moving into a new office and plan to update your office furniture, one of the first things you have to do is figure out how you can best arrange your office workspace.  If you have a limited amount of space to work with, it can be even more of a challenge. Fortunately, there are some tips for arranging office furniture in a small space that can make the process less stressful.

Measure the size of the office space and the pieces of furniture that you want to put into the room. Once you have these measurements, you can plan out where each piece of the office furniture should go.

Start with how you want to position your office desk. Locate the electrical outlets and the jacks for phone lines and Internet service. Place your desk near the outlets and jacks to eliminate the need for running electrical cords across the room. If possible, place the desk near a window. This will allow you to take advantage of the natural light as it filters into the room.

Note how the door to your office opens and closes. Does it open inward? If your office space is really small, the desk may be in the way of the door opening and closing properly. Check to ensure that the door will not bump into the desk each time someone opens the door to come into the room.

Add a hutch to your desk. Since a hutch actually sits on the top of your desk instead of on the floor, it  provides storage overhead. This eliminates the need for another piece of furniture taking up valuable space on the floor.

Let your office furniture pull double-duty. Since space is premium in a small office, let your file cabinet double as a printer stand, or place file folders on top of a short bookcase.

Consider using mobile storage. Mobile storage is basically a file cabinet on wheels. Since it can be moved around, you can bring the storage unit into the office when you need it and roll it back out when you don’t.
