Thanks to advancements in technology, more of us are now working from home. Whether you’re employed by a company and telecommute part or all of the time, or run your own business from home, it’s important to have a dedicated space where you can work effectively without being disturbed – i.e. not the kitchen table! But if you’re thinking you don’t have the space for a home office, you’re probably wrong. You don’t need a spare room or an attic that’s easily converted to set up a workspace in your home – there are plenty of nooks and crannies that can be cleverly turned into compact home offices.
That area under the stairs offers the ideal solution for all sorts of space-saving dilemmas, yet it’s somewhere that’s all too often ignored. If you can fit a desk and chair in there and make it your office, then why not do it?
Find a corner somewhere in your home, and with a bit of planning you can turn it into the perfect office space. In the example above, some string shelves and a chair are enough to create a functional office.
Even the smallest of corners can become a workspace to be proud of. This little corner office couldn’t be lovelier thanks to the gallery wall it shares the space with.
Here we have another inspired use of what might otherwise have been considered an unusable area. Most of us would probably have just stuck a plant there and been done with it.
While you might not have a spare room, you possibly do have a spare closet that could be turned into a closet office, or ‘cloffice’ if you will.
An office that fits entirely into a large trunk, making it easy to close up and move elsewhere in the home as your mood or circumstances dictate.
If space really is at a premium in your home, then consider something like this wall-mounted desk, which can easily be folded away when not in use while still providing some storage.
With just a couple of simple shelves and a small stool, this modest office area is the definition of minimalist.
This delightfully bijou home office is proof that you don’t need oodles of room to create a charming space in which to work in peace.
Who knew a home office/library could fit so easily into so small an area? This compact workspace manages to not waste a single inch of wall or floor space.
There are all sorts of clever space-saving solutions you can employ in your home if space is really limited. In this example, the bed has been raised, allowing room for a home office below.
Don’t like the idea of being stuck away in a windowless corner of your home while you work? Then install yourself and your little office somewhere you can enjoy the view all day.
