If you don’t have a lot of space, but still want to set up a home office, then setting up a little home office nook isn’t a bad idea.
A lot of people have, with great success, managed to fit a tiny (usually floating) desk into a corner, somewhere in their home, creating the perfect little space for getting things done.
By building upwards rather than sideways, and installing storage shelves above the desk, you can fit in your most used items as well, so you don’t have to disrupt your workflow in order to find a specific document or folder.
One very important thing however, is to keep the shelves mostly clear of items – a few books and document holders add to the design aesthetic, but the moment the amount of stuff exceeds the amount of free space, you run the risk of the nook becoming crowded and claustrophobic rather than beautiful and inspiring.
