A simple closet becomes the perfect home office.
Thomas J. Story

Behind Closed Doors

No longer just a storage space, an attic can provide a quiet place to get serious work done. The low walls and pitched ceiling perfectly lend themselves to this long built-in desk. Brighten the work area with natural light from large windows and skylights.

Rather than choose between their small home and their passions, this couple turned to their backyard for help. Located behind the main house, the shared workspace is part woodworking shop and part pottery studio. For extra space to house your own hobby, look to converting a garage or shed into a creative home studio.

An alcove can also become a productive work space.

The Cubicle

From Southern Living

Framed with a pointed arch, this cozy alcove houses a discreet workspace. Color and cabinetry fully integrate the office with the rest of the room, while the cutout niche manages to give it some depth.

Turn an empty corner into an office for the entire family.

The Corner Office

From Sunset

Inspired by Japanese Tansu cabinets, this once empty corner now is a two-person workstation. The sliding cabinet doors are practical and keep the space clean and simple. Perfect for tackling algebra or taxes, this home office accommodates the entire family.
