— Practical ideas for a place to work at home!
Who doesn’t like the idea of working from home! But without proper organizing, things often tend to get messy. Whereas, on the other hand, organizing your workplace well can contribute towards productivity. Here are some ideas to carve out that extra space for your home office design.
1. Be the Best and Be Comfortable
If being online and connecting with the news is your thing, then this home office design is the recipe for you.
High tech and pastoral colors, glass and wood make brilliant contrasts. The combination will for sure keep you focused on the task but also help you develop the right choice of action.
2. Office in the Closet
Stuck inside a vintage closet inside a wall nobody would give a second look, may be hidden a smart succession of shelves, wide enough to fit a laptop, a vase, a flower pot and any other kind of useful stuff we usually have on our office desk.
A vintage chair can be put there when the doors are opened or simply removed when they are closed and used for any other purpose. Along with saving the space this is a smart way of “hiding“ the working space from the eyes of strangers.
3. Breeze of a Spring Day Captured in Your Home Office Design
If you plan to make the most out of a random place in the living room why not have a blast.
Flower wallpaper, vintage furniture and cushions may make your working place a fantasy realm. If blue is not your color then pick another, provided you do amazing changes with it and make your home office a fabulous place.
4. Murphy Bed Office
It is quite intriguing when you come to think of it. Using the same concept like the in-wall beds, the office desk can be lifted when not in use and become just another library door.
Such design comes in handy when there is not a lot of space in the room and you may feel the need to move through it when not working.
5. Girly Girl Homework Space
Children’s rooms are usually spacious but also crowded with all kinds of toys, books, school stuff, play stuff, being practically a Babylon. It happens often that the homework notebook gets lost among favorite stuffed animals exactly when the homework needs to be done.
A plexi-glass succession of overlapped shelves wide enough to fit a laptop and the homework gear is a very comfortable choice and saves a lot of room in a small space.
6. Anywhere Can Be Your Place

It is important to see and focus where you are comfortable and the contemporary tendencies dictate to simply …do your job anywhere.
7. Small Space and Green Thinking
If you are in need of a private space to conduct your affairs from home but are not in the mood to invest, you can always reuse.
An old piece of furniture can be turned into a vintage office desk, and old drawer into your office organizer and you can simply separate it from the rest of the house with a decorative wall. You will get your privacy with low cost and green thinking.
8. Put It Here Put It There…Put It Anywhere
Do you hate to be pinned down when working?
This movable office desk is the recipe for you. You can put it anywhere and when you need better light or you just want to change the air, you can just pack it up and go with the flow.
The beauty of it is that this light office desk can be used for other purpose too when you are not working.
9. An Artist’s Home Office Design can Be a Glamorous Den

A comfortable sofa in a friendly romantic décor may put you into the most amazingly creative disposition.
10. Closer to the Sky

11. Then a Random Garage Now an Office
