Some hang out washing here, and someone visits a small room for smoke breaks. In any case, it is possible to change the space of a small room for the better, add functionality to it and fall in love with it once and for all. We looked at some of the most practical and interesting ideas.
For effective work

Freelance is a fairly common type of activity today, when an employee does not visit the office, but works without leaving home. Organizing a room in an apartment is not so easy. It is necessary to find a place where there is enough daylight and nothing distracts from the workflow. Ideal for these options fits a closed balcony or loggia.
In furniture stores it is now easy to find a compact desk or computer kit with shelves and drawers for storing documents. This piece of furniture fits perfectly in the depths of the balcony. As for the color of the office, then it is better to give preference to light shades. They are neutral, do not interfere with work and do not affect the human psyche.
