Furnishing A Tiny Office (Or Cubicle)


Blogger sjennings at Arnolds Office Furniture always has great photo roundups showing offices that meet specific criteria. Recently, this included a set of truly tiny offices. Some were cluttered and cramped, while others were pretty cute. The post included some helpful tips for using a smaller office space wisely. Be sure to check those out here.

Now, here are a few more ideas for what kind of office furniture to use in a mini-office. These also work for cubicles:

  • Pick a workstation with an overhead bin so the area above your worksurface isn’t wasted
  • Install an under desk keyboard tray and an articulated monitor arm to free up desktop space for printers and other peripherals
  • Look for a chair with arms that can be adjusted downward so the chair will fit in the leg hole of your desk when not in use
  • Consider using a corner desk that has a shelf for your hard drive to align all the essentials in one area of your workspace
  • Use a mobile storage pedestal with a padded top to serve as occasional seating as needed
  • If you’re using dividing panels, choose those that have tackable or white board sections incorporated into the design so they serve multiple purposes.
