When I first started working from home in 2020, it took me a while to realize I badly needed to create a dedicated work space in my apartment. I'd been working from my couch, at my kitchen table, out on my porch, and on the worst of days, in my bed. I was unfocused, and since anywhere in my house was a potential work spot, I began associating every room in my house with work. I realized I needed to create boundaries around which spaces would be specific to leisure, and which would be dedicated to productivity.
Before starting grad school in the summer of 2021, I moved into a small apartment where my office space and bedroom are now one and the same. I wanted to be intentional about my setup, so putting effort into creating a spot I enjoy spending time in — no matter how small — was a top priority when it came to building my own little workspace. The tips ahead are things that I did to create a small office space in my bedroom, and it's really made all the difference.
