Small desks for compact living

When desks are placed close together, desk screens create a somewhat private space and reduce distractions from the surroundings. Choose sound-absorbing screens to dampen noise levels. Desk screens can also be used as bulletin boards.

Small triangular corner desks take up little space and allow you to use unused corners. With a small height-adjustable desk, you also get an ergonomic workspace. Four corner desks can also be combined into a workgroup with screens in between. Perfect for the small office.

Meetings in a Small Office

You may need to fit a meeting table for clients or colleagues. A larger desk with a curved tabletop  is a space-efficient alternative. It provides plenty of workspace at one end and room for visitors at the other.

standing table  takes up less space than a large conference table and works perfectly for shorter meetings. Stand up during the meeting or add high stools that can be pushed under the table when not in use.

Space saving storage

Choose cabinets with sliding or roller doors if you want closed storage. This frees up more floor and wall space than doors that open outward and makes the room feel larger. It also eliminates the problem of storage cabinets that cannot be fully opened because it is too cramped. Additionally, it gives a tidy impression when office supplies are hidden.


For items you use frequently, a mobile pedestal on wheels is a good storage option. The rolling pedestal is easy to hide under the desktop where it is out of the way and can be moved if needed elsewhere. Use a CPU holder for your computer so it does not take up desk space or get in the way on the floor.

Maximise Wall Storage

Build upwards if floor space is limited. With floor-to-ceiling storage, you get maximum space in a small area. Wall-mounted shelf systems with tracks are easy to adjust according to the room. You can choose to have just a few shelves or cover an entire wall.

Wall-mounted shelves and cabinets are also perfect for small spaces. Think about which unused spaces can be utilised. Why not mount some shelves above the desk or door?

Wall-mounted brochure racks can be used for incoming mail or forms, taking up much less space than traditional mail sorting cabinets and form shelves.

For outerwear and bags, wall-mounted hallway storage is the best option. A coat hanger mounted under a hat shelf with hooks provides plenty of storage in a small area.

Folding furniture saves space

With a few folding chairs and a collapsible table, you can quickly create extra seating when needed, and the furniture takes up minimal space when folded. Lack a separate storage area for folding chairs? Hang them on a hook on the wall!


A multifunctional flipchart stand that can be folded into a table always provides extra space when needed. The stand functions not only as a flip chart holder and extra table but can also be used as a whiteboard or magnetic bulletin board.
