25 Ideas for Home Offices You’ll Love


Looking for ideas for home offices? Working from home doesn’t have to be boring and drab. Here are some great ideas from my talented home blogging friends.

Ideas for Home Offices

Home office in an armoire

But first, here’s a peek at my home office. It’s not actually a full office, but is instead a corner of our family room where my work necessities are tucked away inside of a computer armoire. It’s nice because I can close it off whenever we have guests.

Full disclosure, it’s not always this tidy. In real life it has more papers and post-it notes. And I keep most of my craft items stored downstairs in my craft room/studio. You can tour it here: My Craft Room/Studio. And my printer and office supplies are in the closet just to the left of the armoire. It’s here: Office Supply Closet

What should be included in a home office?

You don’t need an entire room full of equipment or shelves for an efficient home office. These are the essentials for any home office but you can always add more if needed:

  • Laptop or desktop
  • Desk – this can be a small table, secretary, or any flat surface to work from
  • Filing system – you’ll likely need at least a few folders and some type of filing system.
  • Organizers – papers and pens will need to be organized
  • Chair – a good office chair will keep you comfortable and productive. Choose function over style.

Additional items you might want for your home office:

  • Task lighting
  • Filing Cabinet
  • Printer
