cool home office nooks in living rooms

More and more of us face the problem of small spaces, which don’t suppose having separate rooms for everything, plus open layouts conquer the world. More and more home owners rocked united spaces, where bathroom is in a bedroom, a home office is in a kitchen and a library is integrated into a bathroom. Today I’ll tell you how to pull off a home office in a living room to make it look stylish and not spoil the whole look of the space.

There are several ways to do that: separate the spaces visually or keep them united completely. Prefer furniture and decor to match the space you already have as it will give your room a seamless look. Where to place your office nook so that it could benefit as much as possible? Let’s have a look at some ideas.

Behind The Sofa

The space behind the sofa is usually underestimated and not used but it’s ideal for a home office nook! Place a desk that you like there – it can be matching for the space or different for a contrasting look, the latter is a great idea to visually separate the spaces. Yet if you want a calmer and more unified look, integrate the desk into the space and find matching chairs.

Other Placements

Another idea is to place a desk by the window or in the corner by the window: it will get as much light as possible, and if it’s a behind the couch space, it’s even better. Place the home office nook on the wall – make it fully floating using floating shelves and a desk but provide enough light there. In such cases placing the desk requires perfect integration, you better find some fitting furniture – the same colors and styles are the best option. Get inspired!
