Compact Home Office

So our home in Austin, although sprawling is actually not that big. It is about the same size as our home in Chicago measuring around 1,900 sf. We have become adept at making small spaces seem big and this space actually feels much larger than it is because of the vaulted ceilings and open plan. When I started designing our home office nook, I knew I wanted it near the kitchen but also knew it would need to integrate into our pantry cabinets that we already purchased from IKEA.

The desk top is an IKEA countertop that we stained dark and the rug is FLOR carpet tiles, which I love!

The book nook is also IKEA shelves that we cut down to size and IKEA brackets all very affordable.
