Working from the couch just isn’t the same as working in a dedicated office space.
Whether you need a space to work from home or your child needs an e-learning station — or both — effective storage prevents clutter that often tends to accumulate in a home office.
When utilizing kitchen cabinets in your home office, everything will have its place. Plus, having your things hidden behind cabinet doors will give your office a clean look. Whatever your needs and preferences are, cabinets are the way to go to make the most of your space and to make it enjoyable to look at.
Check out the cabinet ideas below for inspiration as you start planning for your dream home office.
When considering cabinets, it’s always a good idea to get adjustable shelves. With adjustable shelves, you can customize your storage as many times as you need and can utilize the area for very small, tall, or unusually shaped items.
VERSATILE BASE CABINETS
For a home office that makes efficient use of space, you can use base cabinets and a countertop as a desk. Consider an L-shaped cabinet desk to really maximize your storage.This leaves you with plenty of room to hide away a printer, WiFi router, cables and wires, and other office necessities. High-end laminates look great for a sleek and sophisticated office space.
CABINETS WITH HOOKS
Storage is all about making the best use of your space. Hooks on the back of cabinet doors can be used to hang your work bag, a child’s backpack, or even your favorite work blazer or jacket. Nothing says convenience like having work-appropriate attire within reach for a Zoom call.
Open front cabinets are a great way to elevate your home office. You can add practical items, such as books, knick-knacks or photos for a sophisticated and personalized look. Hardwood cabinets are often used in kitchens due to their durability, but they also look and work great in a home office.
HEAVY-DUTY DRAWERS AND SHELVES
Not all cabinets are created equal. With cabinets, you can get shelves or drawers that are built to withstand the weight of papers and books that are necessary for your workspace.
Cabinetry doesn’t just belong on the sides of your desk. Designing your home office with overhead cabinets makes use of all the space you have. Overhead cabinets with doors provide space for stationary and other supplies to keep the clutter hidden.
HIDDEN FOLD-OUT TABLE
Well-designed cabinets can make your life a lot easier. Cabinets with a hidden fold-out table allow you to have a workspace available when you need it while making effective use of the area. This custom design is ideal for when your home office also doubles as the home gym or plays another function in your household.
