How to Create an Office Space without an Office

Beth Rice 31/01/2017

Whether you live in an apartment, small home, bungalow, ranch-style farmhouse, or manor, there’s a spot that can be turned into an office space. And selecting the right custom furniture will help transform the space.

A Bedroom Work Space

A quiet bedroom corner is conducive to creativity. Whether you’re reading, writing, or just catching up on the daily mail, a space in your guest or master bedroom can be transformed into an office. Keep the layout simple with just a desk and lamp. Keep only your laptop on your work surface so you can take full advantage of the space. A secretary desk, writing desk, or a Murphy bed and desk combination are sure to do the trick.

The Rivertowne Amish Desk is just the right size for your bedroom corner.

A Hallway Haven

Your hallway, whether modest or grand, can serve as a host to a lovely office space. A simple solid wood desk can add to the décor while providing a quiet work space. Great candidates for your hallway office are the beloved roll-top desk or a simple and sure writing desk.

The Spare Corner

Seek out that odd corner that has nothing in it and turn it into your home office. Find a solid wood table that provides room for your laptop, lamp, and writing pad, or have a desk custom-made to fit the exact dimensions of the corner. You can add a chair if there’s enough room or just plan on pulling a dining room chair over when you work.

The Amish Home Office Apple Valley Corner Desk is a custom fit for your spare corner.

Entryway Efficiency

Style a writing desk or accent table right in your entryway to serve as your office space. Select a desk that can double as a decorative hall table when you’re not hard at work.

Secretary in the Living Room

You can easily create an office space in any room. A secretary desk is a great option for the living room. Opened it supplies a workspace, and closed it acts as a decorative accent. Use a chair from the dining room table at your living room desk space.

Watch the Amish Mission Secretary Desk blend beautifully in your living room or family room.
