Less is More with Corner Desk and Shelves

Even a tiny room can do double duty as a home office when all the space is maximized to its fullest potential! Most of the space in this room was taken up by a large sofa. However, it presented several small nooks that could be maximized for office storage and functionality. The largest area — an empty corner, was utilized for the desk and main work surface. A corner desk provides the largest work surface for this type of space. The desktop was further enlarged by angling the cut across the corner. Angled countertops, desktops and shelves can create a highly functional space in a number of ways. The chiseled edges ease opening and closing a door — leaving plenty of leeway not to crash into any corners. The corner shelves are also a safer option to eliminate the hazard of running into sharp edges. This solution easily provides the required 42 inches of space needed for desk seating along with abundant countertop space for spreading out papers and work materials. As a whole, less becomes more when the unit is visually condensed to appear less massive. The bookshelf wall unit, in the corner next to the sofa, retains necessary storage space for a home office while not overwhelming the room. Spacious shelves allow large books such as reference materials to be safely kept in one place. A five drawer cabinet with locking drawers was tucked into the small corner behind the door to provide additional countertop space that can be used for a printer, scanner or other office equipment, with a place to store tools and secure private items away from prying eyes underneath. This tiny home office and desk has been customized to the owner's body type and needs — creating the perfect dimensions for an effective personal workspace. A white, wood tone material for the body of the home office system with contrasting countertops in gray "Moonlight" laminate was selected to compliment the gray sofa with white piping that dominates the room, and blends with the rest of the home's decor.
