Choosing the best modular home office furniture involves thinking about the room size and budget as well as what type of workspace and storage space you need. Where the office is located in your home is also worth considering since you may want to have higher quality, more stylish modular home office furniture if it’s on your main level rather than in the basement. Modular office pieces work well in any space since they’re sold as units that can often be added to so that individual home office solutions can be created.

If you have a long, narrow home office, you may want to look for curved modular desk sections that you can add to a traditional rectangular desk piece so that you’re making use of the space. Take the measurements of your office space and then look online or in print catalogs or go out to stores in your area that carry modular home office furniture. You can eliminate home office pieces you don’t like or that won’t work in your space.

Closed storage can hide messy work projects plus all types of office equipment and supplies. If you want a clean, uncluttered look, modular home office furniture with mostly closed storage rather than open shelving will probably work best. A modular office hutch, or top cupboard unit that sits on a desk, is a great way to increase storage and add a more finished look to a plain desk.

Consider choosing a printer table with storage drawers for paper and other office supplies so that you have everything enclosed, yet where you need it. Try to choose modular home office furniture in colors that suit your room and create a cohesive look. Choose a comfortable office chair that supports your body and adjusts to the proper height for your desk. Modular office chairs may require assembly like modular desks, although some are sold pre-assembled. Executive style chairs have armrests and are usually more padded than task chairs.

If you work from home on a daily basis, choosing modular home office furniture that is high quality and provides enough storage is likely to be a good investment. If you just use your home office mostly to pay bills, you could choose less expensive furniture. Thinking about the maintenance requirements of the furniture is also a good idea. For instance, real wood may need polishing but white particle board may show marks and chip or dent more easily.

@spotiche5- If you get the right type of modular office desk, you will be able to save space in your small office by forgoing a printer table. I have a desk that has an attached shelving unit with three sections. This gives me enough space right on the desk for my printer, important files, and other important office supplies.

You should also be able to find a modular office chair that is small enough for your small space, yet big enough to be comfortable.

@spotiche5- I use to have a modular office desk that was oval-shaped. Though I outgrew it because I needed more space for files and computer equipment, it was great when I had a small office. Since it didn't have any corners, it fit perfectly into the room. I also liked that I could place my office chair at area of the desk. You might want to consider this type of modular office furniture for your limited office space.

I think that modular office furniture is great for small spaces. It comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be organized to fit corners and narrow rooms.

Modular plans for office furniture can be put together by the sales people at the furniture store of your choice so you can be sure to get the best design for your needs and available space.
