Converting Closets, Nooks and Furniture into Functional Home Offices
“I believe in small spaces; a place where comfort, beauty and practicality can all co-exist in harmony. Any fool can make things bigger and more complex, but it takes a touch of genius to move in the opposite direction.” – Thoreau & Gower
I adore this quote and truly believe that it is the best way to describe the latest trend of regular closets, nooks and furniture, turned extraordinary home offices. There is a big “wow factor” to these innovative, space-maximizing transformations that really has started a new trend… especially for home owners who find themselves short on square footage, or additional space for a traditional office.
These small, yet multi-functional ‘rooms’ are actually becoming more and more popular in homes of all sizes. If you’ve been looking for a great way to create more space out of an underutilized closet, here are some great ideas!
As you can see, simple shelving inside of a closet office is the key to adding room for additional storage.
If you have a small nook or closet that no longer has usable doors, but you still want to be able to close off your new office to others when not using it, try some inexpensive curtains or draperies to section off your space.
If you think there’s no hope for a cool, space-saving office in your home because all of your closets are already being used and you don’t have an empty little nook… don’t worry, you’re in luck! You can make your own with just a simple re-purposed piece of furniture!
From a bookshelf to an old TV cabinet, almost anything can be made into a small home office with just a little imagination.
