A home office is a luxury that everyone should have. What could be more relaxing than a place to plug in and get some work done without having to leave the comfort of your own space? You might think that having a home office necessitates having a spare room. But with a little creativity and some well-placed built-ins, even the smallest nook can become an enviable and beautiful home workspace.
Take a look at these seven inspiring workspaces to get ideas for how to create your own home office. But be careful: you might love your new home office so much, you’ll become an entrepreneur just to work from home every day.
1. Basement Built-In
Some drywall, a built-in bookcase, and a floating shelf transformed this basement nook into a bright and modern home office.
2. Stairwell Study
This surprise workspace makes perfect use of that awkward space under the stairs.
3. Corner Nook
This tucked-away writing desk’s upholstered chair makes it an inviting place to sit.
4. Crow’s Nest
A glass desk and a built-in bookshelf takes advantage of an otherwise unused outlook.
5. Back Door Den
A small-scale wooden table is all this underutilized spot needed to serve as an impromptu workspace.
6. Closet Alcove
A lush rug, a small desk, and a rich coat of paint transform this foyer’s coatroom into a compact office.
7. Kitchen Niche
A low counter shelf in the center of a bank of built-ins makes this kitchen workspace lovely and functional.
