If you've only got a sliver of space for a desk, you might want to check out hotels for ideas. Most of them include a small workspace — just enough room for a writing surface and a chair. Yes, the bedroom is sacred space and in an ideal world, it's kept free of laptops and work devices. Still, if you live in a studio apartment or you're really short on space, sometimes the bedroom is the only place a desk can fit into the equation.
The hotel rooms shown above demonstrate a few different methods of integrating a workspace into a bedroom. Some use wall-mounted desks or a narrow strip of wall-mounted shelving to carve out an office area. Others use a small table in a nook, with an armchair that can double as a desk chair or a place to curl up and read a book.
Even if you're not planning on converting your bedroom into a part-time workspace, these tricks can apply to other spaces, including kitchens, closets, or hallways.
