Small Working Space

One Metre Square

Having cleared out the attic and turned it into a workspace last January I promptly lost it to Mr Kat. Save for a few hours at the weekend I’ve been working from the sofa and as comfy as that is it wasn’t practical with a family.

I hatched a plan to claim a corner of our bedroom as my own but with very little space already it had to be seriously small.

The main issue was fitting in a desk which wouldn’t take up so much space we couldn’t walk past the bed. I was pondering a space-saving Ikea desk when I saw this old formica table in a local junk shop. Not only was it the perfect width but with folding leaves it can be made smaller when not in use. Don’t you just love the pattern on the top?

I have taped some prints to the wall while I decide how to hang them and I’ve positioned them so they define my corner as a separate space which I really like. I’m going to have to create some storage on the wall but in a way that won’t be endlessly tempting to little hands.

I could run wild with ides for decorating this space but size is forcing me to keep it simple.

It may be just one square metre but I’m loving this little corner of my own.
