Work Around: Closets as Offices

Roundup

With built-in shelving to make use of the vertical space above our heads and a large open area at eye level intended for hanging clothes, a standard closet can sometimes lend itself nicely to a home workspace.

Adding curtains, translucent doors, or just keeping in mind that sunlight should get through to the back wall, what you may expect to be a claustrophobic space can feel quite comfortable. All you need is a desk, a chair, and a nearby outlet to get started, then layer in bright pops of color to keep the closet office from feeling dingy. And remember, organization is key! Otherwise it'll look like a regular old closet on which you'll want to shut the doors.
