Small Spaces: Home Office

home office_Elle Decor

Living in a tiny apartment doesn’t have to be a design death sentence. In fact, it can be a hell of a lot more fun to decorate and design than a large, overpowering open space or home. Think about it: cost, furniture flow, stylistic continuity, cost, too much space to know what to do with, cost. Did I mention the cost associated with big decor jobs?

Anyway, as it is: office space can also be costly. Don’t believe me? Just check out your nearest Regus or similar shared office space endeavor. They’re charging near $1,500 -$3,000 a month for a room barely big enough for a desk while happily telling you that 5 people can fit in there. Um, no thanks.

Hence why working from home is becoming increasingly popular.  I love this office set-up from Elle Decor (photo by Simon Upton and design by Juan Carlos Garcia-Lavin). It’s perfect. Organized, fresh, useful. Making use of the closet space and turning it into a secluded fully-decked out office space is genius, especially for people living in 500 sq foot apartments. With a tucked away all-in-one printer, small filing cabinets for desk sides and shelving to the ceiling–this is a dream space. And the fact that you can close it away when guests come over for a drink? Perfection.

What do you think? Would you do it or do you think you’d need more space?

  1. The only thing I’d add is a mirror on the first shelf so I don’t feel so much like I’m staring at a wall all the time. Other than that, it’s excellent!
