Home Office Part 1: Small Homes Require/Inspire Creativity

We have a three bedroom house. One room is used as a bedroom, another is Jason’s studio (he’s a full time musician) and the other is my home office. We plan to have kids someday, we’ll need another bedroom and if you know me you know I like to plan ahead. (Remember my post about the addition we’re planning to do … in 10 years or so?) Therefore, I’ve been pondering for a while now about where I could relocate my home office.

(LUDVIG $120, CYRIL $199 and JONAS $150 from IKEA)

I love this corner desk that Jordan Ferney created for their living space. They have a modest size home and therefore have to be creative with their space. This room is a living room, home office and a playroom! The desk is from IKEA but Jordan made it much prettier! (Sidenote: I also love these posts on her son’s closet bedroom and wisely planned toy area! Seriously smart and creative use of space.)

IKEA sells a ton of home office options. Even more compact than the armoires above, I’ve considered one of these for a spot on the wall in the living room or maybe even our bedroom.

(IKEA PS $59.99)

But the living room is crowded enough already and how would I concentrate on work if someone was watching TV? And I hate the idea of bringing my work into our restful bedroom. And with this or with an armoire, where would I put my printer and second monitor?

This is not going to work …

    I don’t know if this helps, but we didn’t have room for an office so we took of the doors to a closet and built one in there. http://1088churchill.blogspot.com/2009/11/first-big-project-nurseryoffice.html
