Fortunately, with a creative desk arrangement, your can turn any nook in your tiny home office.
4 Tiny Desk Ideas
- Corner desks. If space is limited in your home consider investing in a corner desk. With a triangle-shaped desk, you can turn the corner of your living room, kitchen, or hallway into a work command center. Some corner desks are long with extra storage but require more space. Other corner desks are compact, which are great for tiny spaces. You can find different examples of corner desks here.
- Closet desks. Do you have an extra closet you can spare? Turn it into a home office. Closets (whether wide and shallow or a walk-in) make the ideal tiny home office as there is plenty of room for storing your files and books. Just remove the closet doors and replace them with curtains to match your décor. Add a desk, chairs, and a new shelving system. If you have other things you need to store (such as clothes) add an additional rail in your new closet office. For more ideas, check out these pictures.
