Many home owners face the problem of lack of space, and to help you, guys, we continue sharing the best ideas and tips to get maximum of what you have. Today’s roundup is one of these – we’ll share some ideas to squeeze a home office nook under the stairs, make it functional and comfortable for working.
If we take under the stairs home office nook, there’s nothing difficult about designing one: just place a desk, some lamps and shelves and voila, keep in mind that it should correspond with the decor around. But two main concerns are storage and light. Many home owners reject the idea of placing a home office under the stairs because of not enough light and too little space. Let’s see how to deal with that.
Let’s be honest: one table lamp won’t be enough to illuminate the whole nook and make it inviting to work. Go for some built-in lights or various layers of light to make working here enjoyable. If it’s possible, make a staircase with no risers or just remove them from the existing piece – it guarantees that your home office nook will get much light. If it’s possible, make a separate window in this home office nook, which will flood it with natural light and let you enjoy the views. One more way to go is to extend the home office from the corner a bit and place it partly there, so the light from the space around will come here, too.

Place various cabinets around the desk, attach some on the wall or build in some shelves, which will look airier and lightweight than bulky cabinets. The cabinets can be even attached to the wall and form a ladder themselves! Get inspired and squeeze maximum from your space!
