Recessed Desk

Designer Andreas Charalambous used space wisely in this basement guest room/office. Without sacrificing floor space, recessed shelves provide storage and a desk alcove.

Convenient Kitchen Office

A workspace adjacent to the kitchen features built-in shelving and cabinets to house cookbooks and frequently used office essentials. Design by Barb Ince.

Space-Saving Design

To preserve as much floor space as possible in her family game room, Rate My Space user Rachel Bay Area had this desk unit recessed into the wall. Four large drawers and shelving that extends all the way to the ceiling provide plenty of storage space.

Contemporary Office Nook

This contemporary townhouse with modern design features a small office nook tucked between the living room and stairs. The space is private and spacious enough for a desk, office chair and overhead storage.

Centrally Located

Set between the relaxing family room and the cozy kitchen, this desk center is bordered by matching cherry cabinets. The warm tones of the wood create an inviting place to work. Design by Lou Ann Bauer.

Contemporary White Office Nook

A kitchen office nook ties in visually with the contemporary white design, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.

Attic Office

A small but functional home office can be a good fit for an oddly shaped room. Rate My Space user lowenstein found space for both a desk and exercise equipment in this awkward attic.

Chic, Cozy Nook

An under-the-stairs closet becomes a cozy work nook with the addition of a built-in desk and chic graphic wallpaper. The rich hardwood floors help warm the space.

Creative Corner

Using an L-shaped desk, Rate My Space user JulieMacHome was able to create a home office and crafting area in the corner of this small guest room. Shelving mounted above the desk keeps books and files organized.
