What do you use a home office for? Or do you even have a home office? I used to just work on my laptop curled up on the couch or on my bed. Then I realized how bad that was for my back.

What I soon discovered was that you don’t really need an entire room for a home office in order to be efficient and organized. You can create a home office in the corner of your living room or against a wall in the kitchen.

If you are frustrated with your home office situation and just need a few new ideas, you came to the right place! I found some of the best ideas and shared them all in one place.

This office is so dreamy! I love all the different shades of pink and white. Lots of home office ideas on this list use white office decor. It’s a color that creates a feeling of openness and space.

There is no wrong answer here. Choose what makes you feel happiest.
