No spare room for an office? No problem. With a little creativity and just a few feet of space – be it in a corner or hallway – you can build your dream at-home office anywhere in the house.
In the Bedroom
Switch out your nightstand for a double-duty desk. Look for a slim style with plenty of drawer space to keep office necessities organized and out of sight when not in use. To finish, top the desk with a streamlined task lamp, then choose a stylish side chair to slide underneath.
In the Living Room
Turn an overlooked corner into a hardworking office with a streamlined ladder desk that doubles as storage. Stock the shelves with baskets and books, then pull up a comfortable chair from the living room to round out your work zone.
In the Kitchen
Your kitchen island (or table) makes for a convenient desktop. Simply stash office essentials in a nearby cabinet, using pullout drawers for easy access to papers and supplies, and the inside of the cabinet door for to-do lists and reminders.
In the Hallway
With a few easy tweaks, your hall closet can become the most productive spot in the house. Start by installing a wide, waist-high floating shelf to serve as a desktop, then bring in a backless bar stool that can be tucked underneath. To brighten the space without electrical work, bring in a plug-in sconce.
