A den, attic, or even a closet can be turned over and transformed into a brand new workspace with the right pieces. But building out a two-fer — keeping the room functional for its original purpose and adding in a second office zone — well, that's tougher. We've seen it done with bedrooms and kitchens, but never in one of these three spaces.

A Home Office and a Closet

When most people transform their closet into an office, they usually move their wardrobe somewhere else. But not so in this home from Elle Interiors Sweden, where an iMac desk shares a room with racks of clothes. It doesn't hurt that the new closet/office combo is huge and was once a bedroom.

A Home Office and a Laundry Room

The 2011 HGTV Green Home featured a "Do" room, a mulit-purpose room that serves as a crafts studio, home office and laundry room. Front loading machines sit cozy next to two distinct working cubbies, one for crafts and gift wrapping and another for work and organization.

A Home Office and a Garage

We've seen garages converted to workspaces before, but this space, designed by Monticello Homes & Development, looks great and still leaves plenty of room for you to use your garage as, you know, a garage.
