Home Offices in Cramped Quarters

Home Offices in Cramped Quarters

Sergio Santos of Delray Beach, Florida knows about getting work done in a small space. He converted a closet sized electrical room into his complete live/work space, thoughtfully organizing the 5.5' wide room into an area where he can use his laptop below and sleep or watch TV in a tiny loft space above, as reported by the Sun Sentinel. Another great example of optimizing a small awkward space below the jump...

In similar fashion, Canadian House and Home illustrates how to take advantage of awkward cramped corners and convert it into a usable workspace with a wrap around desk. Mount a mirror up on the slanted wall and you've got a unique work area.

We've been looking at various unusually shaped and small area workspaces for inspiration before we tackle our own home office makeover. These two examples are quite different, but both show possibilities we're sure to draw upon when we get to the actual restyling/reorganizing.
