Home Office Part 2: Closet Offices & Inspiration

I saw an ad for Unplggd’s Roundup of Home Offices In a Closet one day and had an epiphany. Why hadn’t I thought of this before? I know people put home offices in closets. That could be the perfect solution! (Between the time of the epiphany and the time of this post, one of my sweet blog buddies, Julia, actually suggested I try a closet as a home office solution. Great minds think alike! Heehee.) Here are some inspiration photos I found:

The only hitch: our 55 year old house doesn’t have a whole lot of closet space. The two original bedrooms (master and my office) have closets with sliding doors—not large, not walk-in, and packed with stuff. The third bedroom (Jason’s studio) has a squarish walk-in closet full of musiciany things and is frequently used as an isolation room for his amp.

But wait, we have one more closet … the coat closet in the hallway!

    Hallway could be good! Depends on how you intend to use the space. I love how people painted their closet/office to give it more identity…

      Seems to be the best option for now since I don’t want to give up a bedroom closet. Thanks for the link you sent me the other day. Did you see my question in the comments?

    i love these ideas! i’m not sure i could ever deal with an “office in a closet” (granted, i don’t work from home so i wouldn’t really have to do much in there anyway). i think i’d feel too claustrophobic. anyway, i enjoy more grabbing my laptop and perching it on my lap while browsing and watching tv!!!

      Thanks, Amy! I might feel claustrophobic if I was actually getting IN the closet but an closet office doesn’t bother me. I’m used to a cubicle! I’d definitely work from the comfy couch if I could but after a while I start to get neck and shoulder pain from bad posture. Plus, I have trouble staying focused on my work if the TV is on. 🙂
