Q&A: Squeezing a home office into a small space

Q. I’ve got to get me one of them home offices, but without a spare room it seems impossible.
A. Oh ye of little space, err, faith. A home office should serve domestic technology needs rather than take over precious space. If you only need a computer for emails, internet access and a bit of facebook fun then conjure a workspot from the nook behind a sofa, the corner of a bedroom or a gap in a kitchen bench. All you’ll need is enough space for a 60cm-80cm wide office desk that will store a computer and printer. Officeworks sell a nifty Optima glass desk which is 70cm wide for a measly $59.And have you seen that $99 IKEA PS laptop workstation? It’s a wall cabinet that is only 20cm deep, 70cm wide and 60cm high – even if you lived in a studio apartment you could find some wall space for that little number. Of course, if you plan on running an entire business from home, it’s worth finding a room where you can close the door.  Who wants to make work calls while being distracted by Oprah?
