Home Office Ideas: Conceal it in an Armoire

Ask The Decorating Files. Several readers have written in asking what can be done when lack of space forces you to put a home office in the bedroom or one of the main living areas. When living in a small space, you don’t always have the luxury of a separate office space. However, you still need a dedicated work space that is ready when you are and hides everything when you’re finished. And it should look nice when its all tucked away. The perfect solution is a home office armoire. You can purchase an armoire that was designed to work as a home office. Or you can repurpose a TV armoire and deck it out yourself. When working with a small space like this, it’s important to keep everything organized. Set things up so that they work for you, including your filing system. For your inspiration, here are a few home office ideas that fit nicely in an armoire.

    You have so inspired me. I actually work in a small built in space not much bigger than these. Such great ideas here, from filing to lighting small areas AND making them look good – after all if it is stylish then we are much more willing and creative ….thanks
