We are fully behind the work-from-home life, but in our experience, laying with our laptops on the sofa (or worse, the bed) for hours is much more conducive to impromptu naps than productivity. The common advice is to set up a separate, designated workspace to help you focus, but that tip is clearly for people who have room to spare. If you live in a tiny little studio or one-bedroom apartment, you're going to have to get a little creative if you want to squeeze an "office" into your space. Enter the credenza desk.
See what we mean?
Your counter-height kitchen table probably already turns into a prep surface when dinnertime strikes, so why not apply the same rule of multi-functionality to another piece of furniture? Right now the console table in your living area is likely behind your sofa stacked with books and a lamp, or in the corner holding the mail and your keys. Helpful, for sure, but it could be doing so much more. It could be serving as your desk. The only thing you need to do to make that happen is pull up a chair. Okay, and maybe put those books on a shelf and go through that mail. That's it though. Boom, you've got a non-distracting spot to check all those things off your to-do list. And when you're done for the day? Away goes the chair. When you're off-duty, so is your credenza desk.
