Even if you live in a more petite sized apartment or house, you may have room for a home office.  Even a tiny nook can house a great home office if you use a little imagination.  Here’s a few ideas I found that I love.  Use the ideas presented here and see where you could carve out a little office space of your own!

Home Office in a Closet (from Sunset.com)

If you have an extra closet, this is a great idea!  All you need is a few shelves.  You could even tuck the chair away when you close down the office for the day.  My extra bedroom closet is calling my name right now!

If you don’t have an extra closet, perhaps a small bit of wall real estate?  Like in downtown areas, if you can’t build out, build up.  This desk is fabulous! It’s actually a door topped with a bit of frosted glass.  Reusing and looking very chic!  If you’d like to hide this away, you could put up a track on the ceiling with drapes to pull closed at the end of business.  I also love the bookshelves!

If you live in a small apartment and have a dead-end hallway, this is a great idea for a home office. Again, build up with shelving to maximize storage.  (Read the full article on freshome.com here.)

Do you have a small-ish home office?  How did you setup your office?
