Stylish Study Ideas & Dreamy Home Offices

With home office spaces as inviting as these, you won't mind putting the extra hours in...

Whether you work from home, need a study corner for a side hustle or a dedicated space for catching up on life admin, it pays to have a designated spot in the home for doing paperwork.

If you have the luxury of a spare room that can become a study or a home office, check out the ideas ahead. Bold colours, clever storage and interesting artworks have been used to great effect and may even provide subtle inspiration, for those moments when you’re scratching your head for ideas.

Alternatively, section off an unused area with Crittal-style doors or glazing for a light-filled study.

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.

Whatever your circumstances, space constraints or interior style there are ideas aplenty for carving out a work zone at home.
