    Home Office Alternatives
    Close to half, 43% of America’s workforce report spending at least some of their time working remotely in 2016 according the Gallup’s State of American Workplace report.

    With the growing number of homeowners working from home, there is a need for a dedicated work-space in the house. In some instances, space or budget may not allow for a whole room to be used for an office – consider these alternatives:

    Guest Rooms:

    An extra bedrooms are not used would make a perfect office. By using Murphy beds, sleeper sofas or a day bed the room could be still used for an occasional guest.

    Dining Rooms:

    Many formal dining rooms go unused for their intended purpose. Adding French doors to the opening would give some privacy. We designed and installed a stand-alone (not attached to the wall) double desk work space in a dining room in Herndon, VA.


    A large reach in closet can be converted into a work-space. We recently did one in Alexandria, VA that the client wanted to save space in a small bedroom.

    Other Options:

    Similar to a closet, a nook could be used as a simple desk with shelving above. Areas in a basement can be explored for potential use.

    In conclusion, we can help you can think out the proverbial “box” and come with a clever home office design in an underutilized space.
