3 steps to creating a space that meets your needs.
- Start by making a list of all the activities you do in your home and note the items on the list that you don’t have a designated space for.
- Next think about where you want to do the activities on your list. Do you need natural light, or privacy?
- Finally list any areas in your home that are underutilized that might be able to handle dual function requirements.
Don’t worry about the traditional use of any space in your home. You don’t always have to have a sofa in your formal sitting room.
If you work from home and use your bedroom as a makeshift office, consider a small desk instead of a nightstand to provide double duty of office by day and landing spot at night. A lamp and clock can reside permanently and serve both functions.
