Small Home Office Decorating Ideas

Most people do not have the luxury of a full home office and really have a small space in their home dedicated to the essentials. If that is you then this post is for you my friend! There are solutions to the small space dilemma and they are pretty. Yep you heard that right! Pretty AND functional! So here are my top design tips for creating a functional small home office.

1. Use wallpaper to create a focal wall

This will help to define the space being used and draw your eye up rather than looking down at how small the space is.

2. Add floating shelves

I love this one! This not only gives you looks gorgeous but it gives you more storage. Win win!

3. Use a floating shelf as a desk

This is for those spaces you are literally creating out of nothing. Meaning there is no room for a desk, you can’t build anything and essentially think is impossible to create a work space. This is done so seamlessly with a floating shelf and a wall sconce. The gallery wall makes it all disappear. Brilliant in my book!

4. Use a closet

I love this idea especially for kids rooms. Kid’s can be messy and being able to put a desk space in the closet and drape some fabric in front makes it go away when necessary. Not to mention all the storage space you can get!

5. Create hidden storage

I really hate looking at all the necessary cords and machines necessary to run a home office. They are everywhere! I love this idea of putting (as much as you can) behind/inside a cabinet. You can run the power cords right behind the drawers.

6. Use unexpected items for accessory management

Maybe I didn’t say that quite right but I hope you know what I mean. This old frame with chicken wire is a decorative but function piece. Gotta love that! I see using old window frames and backing them with cork or even old metal salvaged pieces and doing the same as a whimsical touch that has purpose.

  1. Fantastic ideas!! I have a tiny workspace in my new home that I have yet to decorate – I will be referring to your post for inspiration when I’m ready to tackle it!!

  2. Floating shelves would be a nice addition to my office. I always want more space to put my office supplies and books. Plus, you could experiment with putting storage containers that are decorated and add to the decor of the room up there. This picture is a fun example of that with the color coordinated boxes.

  3. My office is really small and i wanted to change something and my friend adviced my to change my curtains into office blinds. I don’t have time to go shopping so maybe you can show me where i can biy it online? But that should be interesting and modern. I found one option here https://www.decoshaker.com/roller-blinds/office and I want something similar to this? Maybe you know
