Even before the thought of starting my own blog entered my mind, I already had a vision of what my dream workspace would look like. I’m not imagining anything grand. In fact, even a tiny functioning workspace in the corner of our dining room would make me very happy. What’s important is I have my own physical space to work on to keep me on top of all the household’s financial, medical and educational documents. You won’t believe the staggering amount of paperwork my kids bring home from school. It can be overwhelming.
For two years, I’ve been sharing a workspace with my two older kids in our living room. The set-up worked very well for us because I could conveniently help them with their homework and lessons and at the same time monitor their online activities. However, it was getting more difficult for us to work and do our thing as our whirlwind of a toddler was getting more curious and creative with his antics. As the little one learns new skills, he’s also becoming more energetic, needing more space to play and explore. With this in mind, we decided to move the kids’ study spaces in their own bedrooms and created a corner for me in my husband’s office. So last winter, we said goodbye to our small dining table set we called our work table.
However, it wasn’t only about having our own workspace. It was also about having an organized and functioning space that will help us get things done. To tell you the truth, I can’t stand clutter. I mean, it’s ok to see a little tangle and muddle here and there while working but they better be sure they clean up after their mess or else..… Oftentimes, it takes a few threatening, blackmailing and terrorizing to get them on their feet. But hey! I’m a mom, I get free pass for that.
So we started canvassing online for affordable, durable and nice looking pieces. And of course ended up getting most of our stuff from Ikea, a.k.a my Disneyland! Moreover, working around the pieces we already have definitely helped kept the cost down. And to make it even more exciting (and economical), our daughter’s new workspace was her birthday gift!😁 I know that’s not exactly what she wanted but it wasn’t a bad idea at all. It was kinda like “killing two birds with one stone”!😁 I also have to mention that, I’m pretty fortunate to have a handyman of a son who put all the furniture together! 😁
So here’s a peek of what our workspaces look like. I hope this will inspire you to create your own dedicated and organized workspace at home that will allow you and the entire family to work more efficiently and be more productive. Enjoy! 😉

When I started my blog, the first thing I did was to set up my home office! You have a great set up!
I’m glad you liked the set-up, Jolene. It can be pretty challenging keeping it the way it is with a toddler in the house but we’re getting by. 🙂 Good luck on your blog! 🙂

I totally agree. Having a workspace that is not cluttered is very important. I turned my dining room into my office. I love you area. I love the color and how clean it is. Good luck with your blogging!
Sometimes it takes a lot of motivation and will to begin the process of transformation. But I’m glad you were able to find a way to create your own work space too.Thank you for the kind words and for dropping by Gretchen! 🙂
My workspace is nice but it’s not as cozy as I would like it to be and I’ve often wondered what I could do to spruce it up. You’ve given me some good ideas!
I’m pretty sure you’ll figure it out. I’m glad you liked it. ☺️
Love the looks of these! Gives me inspiration for a small work space for myself, too.
I’m glad you liked it Amanda! ☺️
Love the color of the walls. I have always loved those hanging buckets. I must get some of those for my office.
I love my green walls! Those buckets are really useful, I hope you get one for your self too! 🙂
I love organizing. It looks like you have a really great, functional space. I like the buckets. The color of the walls is cheery, too.
I’m glad you like it Julie! Thank you. 🙂
I have been doing just that all day! a big spring clean and organising things. it amazing it makes to your mental state.
It definitely makes a lot of difference! Everything just feels calm and light once you see the result.
Looks so tidy. I always search tips to organise my place.
Thank you. I try my best to keep it tidy. 🙂
Love this! My blogging workspace is currently the dining table!! However I have 2 inspiring visual cues that are fixtures that keep me going when I write. And that is what makes my space my favourite spot to work 🙂
Putting up inspiring visuals is a good idea! I think I’m going to do that too! 🙂
I like how you organized things.
After setting my home office I noticed how productivity went up. For our 5yo daughter setting a work desk also resulted with more time spent drawing and creating.
I agree! Thank you 🙂
Honestly, this is what I need. It is time for me to organize my messy place. I wish it will be easy for me too as I am a colonial coder and a blogger.
Go for it Albert! 🙂
I totally agree. I love the choice of colors very much. It looks like you have a really great, work space.
Thank you for the nice words Emma! 🙂

You can do it! Just try to take things one day at a time! You’ll be amazed with the result! 🙂
Now that you put it out there, I can’t help but look at my space with a new set of eyes. The right places does, for me at least, create a wonderful place to create.
What a great transformation! I think having an organised work space is so important, I work better for it!
It is totally important! Thank you! 🙂
Love the new work-spaces! Very colourful and bright, which I would personally find very easy to work in. Good job!
I love the setup! I can’t focus unless my place is tidy too.
Looks super functional and organized. My work space is such a mess but a mess that i can work in. like an organized chaos ahah!
