Closet Office

By , May 4, 2011 11:31 am

I have begun to meet up with several of my 555 residents to document some of their downsizing solutions. It has been so much fun re-connecting with them, touring their homes and having them share their downsizing stories with me.

One of my favorite solutions that I have seen is the closet office! In a smaller living quarters, sometimes the office space is the first to go but with a little creativity, one can put that workspace back into the plan! One of my “downsizers” did just that!

Here are some other fabulous closet offices…

 

What do you think? Do you have a closet just waiting to be cleared out and transformed?

    so easy to do! I just had another client make a desk corner in her bedroom – in only 12″ depth and 48* length
    you do not need much for writing or typing and going vertical is perfect for storage.
    Nice to find your own little corner……….

    What interests me is where do they put all the stuff that was in the closet? I can’t imagine having one less closet. But there are some great ideas here!

    We did this in 1966 when my husband needed a space to study during medical school. I believe the only way you can do it is to set it up when you first move into a space, before you start to think of it as a closet. Our bedroom had two closets- one standard for my clothes and the walk-in that became the study space as well as his hanging space. It also helped that we had just graduated from college in California and didn’t have a lot of clothes that hung in closets. I could never do it now.
