Switching up the furniture arrangement in this small living room created the space needed for a home office. To get the job done, the experts at Style by Emily Henderson placed the sofa against the longest wall and then put the desk directly in front of the window. Doing so opened up square footage in the center of the space making the room feel open and airy instead of cramped and crowded.

A floating wall unit that spans the left side of this New York City studio apartment doubles as a desk with drawer storage.

The couple behind The Cow Spot Blog turned a funky little bump out in their home into a small office drenched in sunlight. To make their space incredibly pretty and super functional, they hired a company to build custom cabinetry. The result is a workspace that conceals a surprise: The desks are adjustable so they can be used sitting or standing.
The apartment is located in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It’s a small flat that originally had a very different interior. The rooms were smaller and the whole place seemed cramped. But, after getting of some of the walls that were just getting in the way, the whole place opened up. By removing the walls, a continuous and spacious living area was created. It’s a modern layout and a much more space-efficient design. The social areas were completely redesigned and transformed into open spaces. However, the private areas such as the bathroom, the laundry room and the bedroom were kept private and intimate.
Sitting on your bum all day is not great for your health that is why we applaud this DIY corner workstation by a Beautiful Mess. In a nutshell, their project uses inexpensive wood and bargain basement shelf brackets to transform an untapped wall into a wrap around, bar height desk that you can use standing. When it is time to sit down, pull up a bar stool.

To also enhance the impression of a larger space, the interior décor had to be continuous. The laminated wooden floors help with that by creating a cohesive image. After it has been remodeled and renovated, the apartment was organized into a modern lounge area that contains a spacious kitchen and a dining table for eight, an open plan living room and a private zone. It’s a functional organization and it goes nicely with the stylish and modern décor.
This apartment measures a surface of only 45 square meters which would be considered small by most standards. However, interior designer Mauricio Karam found a way to make it seem airy and spacious. Not only that, but he also designed a very stylish décor for this apartment. It’s a wonderful example of how to optimize the space you have available in order to make functional and efficient.
