Inspiration for a small home office
I’m lucky that I finally now have a dedicated room in my home to serve as my office, but I wasn’t always so fortunate. I’ve worked in home office arrangements that include the laundry closet of my NYC apartment, at a secretary desk by my bed, and behind the sofa in a nook of my last one bedroom apartment.
If you need a dedicated workspace in your home but don’t have a room to serve as a home office, never fear…we’ve got lots of small home office ideas and tips for you below…
Even a nightstand can serve as a desk in tight spots. A hall or foyer with unutilized square footage might just work as a home office with the right desk.
I love this ode to the traditional secretary. A glossy finish makes it fit in with the rest of the fancy space. If this is too traditional for you, their are many, many modern secretary desks to be found.
Don’t worry if you can’t “hide” your office in a closet. Just give your work space the same thoughtful consideration as you would any other room in your home. Choose a color scheme, matching accessories, art, etc. If you office is out in the open it will be important to keep it tidy!
An unutilized wall in a living room or bedroom can not only give you a workspace but also add to the beauty of your home if you carefully consider that your furniture and accessories complement the room it’s sharing.
I hope you’ve found these small office ideas inspiring!
