Working from home is all the rage these days, but not all of us have a room in our house to spare for a home office. While low-cost furniture makers like Ikea have been meeting this need for desks and office furniture that blend in for years, some higher end options have been appearing on the market as well. And that just makes sense with real estate square footage at a premium everywhere; many of our home spaces need to do double duty. So we’ve compiled a list of some great home office concepts that blend perfectly into other rooms.
1 – Kitchen Workspace
It can be very convenient to work in the kitchen, and not just because it means you’re closer to the cookie jar. Having the coffee maker a few steps away is a big advantage on Mondays, after all. The key to this look is to choose a desk that closely resembles the countertops and cabinet colors of your kitchen. This way, the desk blends in like just another kitchen workspace, and hey, in a pinch, you can use it as extra counter space as well!
2 – Choose a Non-Office Chair
This spare room is doing double duty, but its home office function is cleverly camouflaged. All you see when you first glance at this room is the big fluffy bed with its lush white pillows and billowing duvet. They key to pulling off this look is to choose a chair that looks like it’s there for comfort. In this case, the tufted white upholstery of the chair looks like it’s simply an extension of the comfy bed and your guests will never guess just how much work you’re doing in your guest room oasis.
