What Houzz contributors are saying:
A spare closet is the perfect place to tuck away a work area. But it doesn’t have to feel like a closet. Add a built-in desk and shelving for storage, and keep the color palette light and airy. Add a playful patterned chair for a dose of personality.
Add walls and doors to cut distractions. This office may not have everything going for it — there's no sunlight, for example — but being able to close doors and block sound is important for preserving creative energy. Closed doors also signal that work's in progress and only important interruptions are acceptable.
3. Closet. If you can afford the space, a walk-in closet can make for a highly effective work environment, thanks to its quiet nature. When the doors are shut, you could go unnoticed by the rest of your household for days.One obstacle that could stand in the way of a closet office is a lack of adequate light, as closets generally don't have windows. Adding a light tube (if the closet is on the top level of the house) or getting creative with lighting fixtures can solve this issue.See more closet-size offices
