A home office is a beautiful thing: a space of your own, a place to organize yourself, and a hub for the getting-things-done mode that’s so essential to being a grownup.

It feels like a luxury, but all that you need to have an office of your own is a bit of extra space and some creativity. If you’re ready to finally have the workspace you’ve been dreaming of, then we’ve got you covered. These eleven home offices are simple, beautiful, and gorgeously inventive–and they’re just waiting to inspire your spare space to be the best that it can be.

This room–too small to be a bedroom, but too large to be a closet–gets a new life as an office with some simple built-in shelving and a wraparound desk.
