Not everyone has room for a big sprawling desk — even if that’s where you know you work best. So take some time to consider space-saving solutions that will make all the difference. Opt for floating shelves, small square computer desks, stools that tuck away easily, or wall sconces when floor lamps take up too much real estate. “Some rooms are tight, but you have to make room for a desk of some kind — that’s a must,” says Roth. “Staples has a ton of space-saving solutions to make that easier, like fold-down desks — which you can fold out of sight at the end of the work day.” And in the meanwhile, declutter the rest of the room to the best of your ability. You’ll be grateful for that added open space.
