Who says you need a lofty corner office to feel inspired? These cozy quarters prove that what you may lack in square footage can be made up for in spades with the right decor.
Match your desk, shelves and chair color to the wall to visually open up your work space.
Or add one strong pop of color–like this teal desk–to brighten up (and finally make use of) that odd corner of your living room you never knew what to do with.
UNDER THE STAIRS
A tad better than Harry Potter’s cupboard, don’t you think?
Fact: Wood paneling makes everything cozier.
As do plush rugs and throws.
An office in your kitchen? It doesn’t get much more efficient than that.
OK, we retract that last statement. This is the “get s#%t done” ideal.
Need a break from working? Turn your linen closet into a hidden office and you can shut the door at 5 p.m.
Or you could mount a fold-down desk to the wall and use it whenever you need.
Some fresh wallpaper and a shelf can transform that tiny closet (you know, the one you store your umbrellas and used shopping bags in) into a charming little alcove.
Prefer an office with a view? Add a long shelf along a window and soak in the rays as you work.
