“Read on to see how low shelving, hidden worktops, wall storage and other organizing tricks can help you create a more comfortable and efficient workspace.
Rollout desktop. A rollout desk like this is a great way to provide you more workspace when you need it — and less when you don’t. This traditional built-in desk has plenty of knee room for the everyday user, but the far cabinet pulls out as an extra countertop for larger projects — or even office space for two.
Low shelving. When you’re planning out shelving for your office, don’t forget to extend it below your desk, too. Recessed shelves allow you to store documents and paperwork that might not be needed every day.
Pull-out desk drawer. This subtle home office looks more like a built-in bureau than a desk area. But when it’s time to pay the monthly bills, the false front drawer reveals an entire working surface.
This application’s beauty is twofold: When it’s not in use, everything resting on top of the drawer can stay in the same spot when you push it back. This particular drawer even comes with its own electrical outlet.
Creative shelving. This tiny home office has limited room for shelving, so its occupant carried the shelves out past the wall. A metal suspension rod from the ceiling supports the end of the shelf.
Dual-purpose monitor. Watch TV one minute, and work on a spreadsheet the next with an integrated double-duty flatscreen in your home office. Built into the wall at eye level, this screen works as both a computer monitor and TV, providing a bigger screen for work and play.”
