How to Fit an Office into a Living Room

Sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be enough room to have a proper office in the house. And other times, we just can’t see the creative space that is readily available with just the addition of one or two pieces of furniture. If you’re looking to make an office area in your home, try the suggestions below.
Spreading bills out on the coffee table will only work for so long. Eventually, you may need to find a spot in your living room for a proper desk. Here are some location options to get your gears turning and inspire you to fit a real desk into your living room.
In Part of a Bookcase

Use a bookcase unit with adjustable shelves to configure a small workspace that packs a punch with storage. For extra credit, hide your office away behind curtains or a panel on rails.
You can imitate this by using two of our bookcases with a desk in between them.

Behind the Sofa
Tuck a long, narrow table behind your sofa for a place to keep your laptop and sort through paperwork. A chair or stool that can tuck completely under the desk will maximize your available space.
You can accomplish this with one of our sofa or console tables.

Behind a Partition

Use a screen, shutters or a curtain to keep your desk hidden from the rest of your living area.
You can accomplish this with one of our changing screens.
