How to sneak a home office into any room

Your dreams of a dedicated space to work from home can be a reality

Anyone can find room for an office in their home – you may just need to get a little creative.

Open up

Do you have limited space? Here a deep storage unit doubles up as a corner home office area that can be tucked away when guests come round. Opt for white unit door without handles to get that modern minimalist look.

Divide and conquer

Double doors divide this study from the living room. Moody blue walls are coupled with parquet flooring, a dark desk and golden lamp to create a calming space to work. A jaunty bunch of blooms add a pop of colour to the luxe scheme.

Small spaces

Struggling to decide what to do with that awkward space in your home under a slopping ceiling? Even the smallest nooks are ideal for putting a desk and chair. Lighten up the space with white storage cabinets and family photos.

Keep it simple

For those who find it hard to focus, a minimal home office could be your dream workspace. This neat little space uses subtle touches, such as the dip-dyed curtains and painted stool, to take it from stark to stylish.

Raise your game

Use one end of a mezzanine floor to create a minimal home office. Use fitted storage continued from the level below to stack and store files and stationery.

Go casual

In an open-plan living room/office space, shelving that’s accessible from both sides makes a functional room divider. Those without a dedicated home office area may find a multifunctional room is also a more casual and inviting workspace.

Wooden wonders

Outhouses and sheds provide extra space to nestle a home office. Here, vintage collections take on a charming simplicity when set against textural wood paneling in this rustic home office.
