Tiny offices have two distinct problems. One, they are difficult to move around. Two, there is NEVER enough storage space on the floor that does not result in more office mobility issues. Thankfully, there are plenty of space and storage solutions that can work for you in tight office quarters.
Wall-Mounted Wire Shelving Systems
When you cannot put it down, put it up. Bare wall space is readily converted to storage when you use wall-mounted wire shelving systems. Similar to closet organization systems, these rubber or acrylic-coated shelf racks can run the gamut of your office walls from waist height to a foot below the ceiling. They are strong, durable, and if properly mounted into the stud boards of the walls, they can hold a lot of weight without ever falling down.
Multi-Unit Wall Systems with Customizable Components
Need more than just shelves? What about coat racks, filing systems, etc.? Customizable versions of the wire shelving systems are available too. You can install these out in the open, or in whatever closet space your office has available. They do cost slightly more because you can pick and choose which components you want, but sometimes some office spaces cannot use universal shelving systems.
Criss-Cross Overhead Shelving
Hopefully, no one in your office is over six feet tall. Otherwise, this option may not work. What you have here are a set of wire shelves that run around the perimeter of the office rooms, followed by more shelves that can either run the short direction or the long direction between two of the four walls. This allows you to color-code or alphabetize things and keep them up and out of the way overhead. It is the best option for a small office with no closet space and almost no floor space either.
