    Get a desk. You need something to sit forwards to, and something that will help you focus, like a plain desk. Even just a small ledge would fit you better. Some desks can be space-consuming, so be careful how much room you take up.

    Choose your chair. Some people might prefer a softer cushion, or some people may go for a big, professional chair, that makes the whole 'focus on your work' atmosphere a bit more intense.

    Set up your lighting. A small lamplight might not be enough for you, so adding extra bright bulbs could be a good idea for your writing space. Adding extra brighter lights might over power your lamp, so be careful as many lamps can only take bulbs with 25 Watts.

    Computers/ Laptops: You might want a small computer in your area, so the best thing to do is place your area near some plugs (With computers, a lot of plugs, but with a laptop only one for charging).

    Storage: Some good storage ideas are shelves and drawers- which some desks actually come with. Even small boxes under your desk could be useful time to time.

    Printers: If you work from a laptop/ computer, you might need a printer. Some good hand size printers would be the best ideas, not kept on the desk, maybe underneath it.

  • Keeping to a theme makes the area a little bit more minimalistic.
  • Personalizing your chair: Get an old tee, and cover the bottom of your chair with it. Cut it to size and keep it in place with nails, using a drill or hammer. You could also sew a cushion to the bottom of it.


  • Make sure you have enough space.
  • Plugs must be allocated if you work from an electrical.
