Therefore, in the decoration of small offices takes full advantage of the natural light available.

There is much written about the advantages and disadvantages of working from home, you can visit our entrance where you will learn a little more. The reality in the end is that to create a home office space is usually limited.
Yes, we have little space but we can make the most of it with the decoration of small offices.

No space is lost; you just have to study it well until you find the solution for it!

Today we find many furniture designed to get the performance to those little corners that may end up being, so do not give up the first and see that it deserves the effort.
Another way to get more performance to space is using some tricks that can be very useful. For example, to lighten the office furniture of our office to the maximum. No heavy wooden legs completely closed, better opt for thin metal legs or glass. The idea is to visually lighten the space. Also better little heavy furniture, straight and not too large to help give a sense of spaciousness. Transparent plastic chairs or skate or thin legs will also be a good option that helps us not overload the space.
4. Take advantage of the color
We know the importance of color in our lives and also when defining spaces. We have talked about it in several occasions and, without a doubt, it is a subject that cannot be ignored when we speak of a reduced space. The colors we use can help us create an optical effect of greater width or depth and thus make a room grow before our eyes. For this light colors are the best because they will help us to enhance the light and make everything more spacious. The white and its wide range would be the ideal color for walls and ceilings and we could qualify it with color notes in accessories such as chairs, desk items, etc. But creams, stones and yellows are also ideal colors to make any space grow before our eyes. Everything will depend on your preferences!
The roof is another element that can play in our favor and that we should take into account in the decoration of small offices. If we paint it white or the same color as the rest of the walls, we will gain meters. We can also help with the use of moldings or borders that are placed near the ceiling and create the feeling of greater height of the walls. But if the white bores you can also opt for blue a color that reminds us of open spaces and helps us to enlarge them visually. If you want to give a note of color you can do it with a wall but better avoid too strident colors or wallpapers with large drawings that will occupy too much space visually.
Another very effective trick is the so-called chromatic unit, that is, to unify furniture and walls to make the furniture lose in them and give us a feeling that the space is wider. White is undoubtedly the best option to achieve this goal in which we avoid the feeling of crowded space using the same color range throughout. To not be too boring or monotonous play with the accessories or even with a wall that provides movement and strength.
