Inconspicuously add an office to a living area with a few simple tricks. Incorporate as much concealed storage as possible, such as these clean-front cabinets, which add office functionality without distracting from the rest of the room.
This one is similar to the kitchen office.
An underused alcove was given new life as an office and storage station. A basic desktop was upgraded with a pretty skirt to conceal storage beneath. Shelves were mounted high along the wall to create more head space above the desk. Higher shelves such as these are ideal for storing infrequently used items. When needed, they are easy to locate but are kept out of the way to make room for things used on a regular basis.
P.s. You can do the same with closed balconies 😉
Take a storage lesson from this small desk space and add in storage wherever you can. Cubbyholes along the bottom of the desktop provide space for tucking in papers and notebooks, while a file cabinet below stores more supplies, as well as important paperwork.
Above the desk, a shelf stores even more supplies, and magnetic strips act as a posting place for important notes and to-do lists.
