Space solutions for small farm offices

Maximize storage and function in your farm office with these smart solutions

Do you have a farm office with limited space? Perhaps you just want to create a space to manage your farm office at a remote location or even at home. There are solutions to help you to carve out space for a workstation to meet your needs.

With some creativity, furniture can function to allow you to not only create a smart office in a small area, but can also help you to stay organized. Here are some solutions to help you fit into your small smart office space:

Use the corners! A corner, or L-Shaped desk is easy to find and can help to utilize wasted space. They can also offer added storage above or below, even room for a printer, making them a great option for a small office space.

Hide your desk. A murphy desk folds away into a wall cabinet. Most models include wall storage. This desk is perfect if you mainly utilize a laptop computer, and for very small spaces.

Use empty space. Use the space above and under your desk for storage. Shelves above your desk not only minimizes clutter, but accesses more room to stow away your office documents and accessories. You can even store your office supplies in magnetic containers onto the wall using the Urbio wall plate.

Add wheels. Use carts or filing cabinets that can slide under your desk or another location that is out of the way when not in use. These can also double as extra tabletop space while you work.

Above all, seek out furniture that is multifunction, comfortable and convenient for you.
