10 Inspiring Home Workspace Ideas from IKEA's Stylists
Although I've worked from home for a very long time, this period we're going through with Covid where it looks like now everyone in our family is in need of a more permanent workspace, I've started to search out inspiration to make things a little more comfortable (it seems inevitable, right)? I always fall back on IKEA for clever solutions, and of course their stylists never disappoint. I'm really looking forward to their new catalogue coming out next month, but until then, here's some home office/workspace ideas I've bookmarked. 1. Wardrobe Workspace (Above and below). This workspace neatly tucked into this KLEPPSTAD wardrobe is really clever. Includes a perfect fitted MICKE desk and SKADIS pegboard. 2. Shelf Desk The EKBY ALEX shelf with drawers works perfectly for a small space where you can just pull up a chair and turn it into a desk. 3. Bedroom + Workspace Also loving this idea of adding a mini flexible workspace to a bedroom with this idea using IVAR's fold-up desk and locker-esque combo. Via Livet Hemma. 4. Bar Table/Desk A kitchen office is a do-able option with this bar-style dining table which can become a stand/sit desk. NORRAKER bar table. 5. Kitchen Office A gateleg table opens up to create a quick desk in the kitchen too. Also could be an island for food prep. 6. Under a Stairwell If your stairwell has an opening underneath, this option looks rather cozy. HEMNES desk. 7. In Front of a Credenza Set a temporary desk in front of a shelving or credenza (works for us). IVAR cabinets with MELLTORP table. 8. The Corner Office Cozy up to a corner in a bedroom or a closet This space does double-duty as a vanity. HILVER table. 9. Set Up Shop in a Hallway This galley idea is rather easy to make happen. I think a simple black and white theme is a way of keeping things nice and minimal too. 10. Flex Space I know someone who's using part of our living room right now for a home office. This option of two tables together could be helpful when it's time for dinner so we're not having to clear it off each night to eat.
