In a closet office, well, theres not a plethora of space even for your must-have items, said FlexJobs.nbsp;Youll have to be creative about storage. Running shelves up the back of the closet is an easy and obvious solution. While youre at it, though, consider adding a rail for hooks so you can hang pencil holders, pictures, or other items up and off your desk. Pegboards are another fun and creative way to create more space. You can add these boards on walls and doors to create flexible storage space for whatever you need.

Backyard bonanza

Homeowners who want to stay put are turning to their backyard to make space, said REALTOR Magazine. Several companies are touting backyard solutions, like Kanga Room Systems units start at about 5,000 for an 80-square-foot kit the buyer can assemble and Modern Shed. These companies can ship standalone structures that can be assembled by homeowners to keep their home offices separated from their living spaces. Studio Shed officials say theyve doubled their sales over the last year. In April alone, their sales were four times it was a year prior. The companys units start at 10,000.

Double duty

You dont need to lose your guest room to incorporate a home office. You just need to be creative. We love these Murphy beds that give you both a decked-out desk and a comfortable overnight space for visitors, without the typically cluttered look of a double-duty room.


You dont even have to have an entire room to dedicate to a home office. In fact, its not even necessary to have enough room for a desk. If youre tight on space, consider a wall-mounted desk that folds down when you need it and disappears when you dont.

A new zip code

If your current space just cant accommodate your work-from-home needs, maybe its time to move. Space-constrained homeowners are looking for solutions for a workspace, said Realtor. For some, its even been motivation to move.nbsp;A recent survey of real estate agents conducted by HomeLightnbsp;says that a designated home office will likely be the most desirable or important feature to home buyers in a post-pandemic era.
