by on Feb 10, 2015

Having an entire room in your home dedicated to office space is a luxury for most people. But the 14 tiny work spaces in this roundup prove that big offices aren’t all that. As a matter of a fact, these teeny offices are so dreamy, they’ll make people with the full-size counterparts consider downsizing

This slot of an office has everything you’d want and more:

For $1000 Sara converted a closet in her living room into a fabulous little office space:

Even tinier and just as fabulous is Martina’s hall coat closet turned office:

This little alcove off a dining area is put to good use, and blends in nicely with it’s surroundings:

This little space could have been an alcove or a closet. Either way, the built-ins make it look like it’s always been there:

File storage, printer, desk, overhead lighting…this little space has it all:

Tiny? This sweet little space is more like micro:

A far cry from Harry Potter’s cupboard under the stairs, this space looks like it serves as a family’s command center. (Note the antique the corded phone and  CRT. Yeah, the pic is probably old, but the space’s function is as current as ever.)

Although this alcove happens to be part of a ‘kid’s den,’ its use is so very charming, and those windows??? Swoon.

An underutilized coat closet in a dining room (a coat closet in a dining room?) underwent a major facelift, as the homeowners opened it up, made it bigger…

Tricia’s closet looked like it already functioned as an office of sorts, but she turned it into something you’d want to hide…

into something you’d want to show off:

Another alcove, this time with a delightful pop of color and tons of character:

This nook might be hidden away, but in no way does that mean it’s in a dark location. On the contrary, it’s full of light:

For our finale, this set up where the closet in question serves as a credenza of sorts. The disco ball rockets this pick to squeal-worthy status. Love.
