Working From Home? Striking Home Office Ideas For A Stylish Study

With home office spaces as inviting as these, you won't mind being a little more house bound...

With a steady increase of people working from home this year and more making the most of the flexible working opportunities, it pays to have a designated spot in the home that’s dedicated to your work life. We’ve sifted through our Livingetc archives and pulled out our favourite home office ideas.

Short on space? There are innovative home offices and study areas below that illustrate how everything from a narrow corridor, a chimney alcove or a mezzanine balcony can double as a desk-based nook, providing somewhere to store the laptop, and file paperwork, so it’s easy to find when you need to attend to it.

We love the numerous space saving ideas, such as the simple wall mounted desk, the shelves that have been turned into a stylish work surface and the chic work zone that’s been cleverly hidden behind sliding doors, so it can be closed off when not in use to keep the rest of the room looking neat and tidy.

There are larger home offices and studies ahead too that double up as reception rooms, home libraries, cosy dens for movie nights or are shared with the younger members of the family, so they can sit quietly and do their homework undisturbed.
