Working from home due to the coronavirus is challenging — especially when your home is a small Brooklyn apartment that you share with your loud-talking fiancé (who yes, you still love very much!). In such a confined space, there isn’t a quiet place to focus on work, nor is there a comfortable place to sit in front of your laptop for several hours a day.

Watch the full video above to see my home office makeover and learn some small, affordable steps for how you can optimize your own space, too.
