A corner in your living room or dining room can make a great space-saving solution for an office desk. When you are short on space, a desk that you can fold away when not in use will come in handy if you ever need to temporarily use the home office for something else. An office in the kitchen is a popular trend right now and allows you to keep track of the family & feel part of the hustle and bustle of the home rather than being shut off out the way. Floating shelves or bookcases are a practical way to maximize your office area and are very easy to install. Perhaps you have plans to section off half of your bedroom to make room for a creative studio. If you want to start working from home or would like a space that’s dedicated to studying or kid’s homework… then these small home office ideas will be just what you’re looking for. Here, the previously unused square footage just off of an apartment's entry is now occupied by a private office space. This home office uses the shelving to store both pretty & functional items alike. An unused closet has office area potential, as shown here in a home office designed by Jennifer Jones. This secret office is hidden away when not in use by the sliding door. A simple glass desk, a unique shelving idea that creates a focal point and a cozy rug that brings everything together… can be all you need to achieve an office space in the bedroom that feels self-contained. The stunning office chair in this home office was a seriously dull, boring office chair before Rachel transformed it by upholstering it for her office space… check out the before and after here... (it’s pretty awesome). Windows – If possible choose an area with great natural light… a stunning view is a definite plus! You don't need a dedicated room to create your own office area at home – all it takes is a little imagination and some space-savvy design choices. You could even incorporate the home office into the vanity desk for a functional dual space. The bottom of the table has a C-shaped frame that tucks underneath the bed, keeping it out of the way. You can buy a corner desk to effectively "hide" a workspace and make it blend into the room, or you can take a small, traditional desk and turn it into a room feature. Consider using Filing cabinets like these as they can be easily painted… you can even cover them in self-adhesive contact paper for a quick budget-friendly fix. When Emily designed this home office she decorated it in a style that was true to her by incorporating natural wood tones, warm leather, whites & a selection of functional yet stylish items like paperwork desk files, vases & flowers to bring the shelves to life. A built-in bookcase system with open and closed storage keeps this attractive home office efficient and organized.
