Brighten up an alcove

Brighten up an alcove

"Add a little funky touch to your home office."

Having a home office can be a very handy, giving you the opportunity to work from home secularly, or to have a quiet space to complete some of your own home projects. 

But let's be honest home offices can some look a little... drab. But that does not need to be the case - we feel it's important to have a visually stimulating, fun and creative work space in the home.  


What are the benefits of an alcove home office

An alcove home office is a compact and specialized workspace that is typically located within an alcove or niche in a room. These spaces are designed to maximize efficiency and functionality within a limited area.


  • Space Efficiency: Alcove home offices are ideal for smaller living spaces or rooms with limited square footage. They make use of otherwise unused or underutilized spaces, such as alcoves, corners, or nooks, to create a dedicated workspace.
  • Privacy: The enclosed nature of an alcove provides a certain level of privacy, making it easier to focus and concentrate on work tasks. This can be especially beneficial in busy households or shared living environments.
  • Cost-Effective: Creating an alcove home office can often be more cost-effective than dedicating an entire room to office space. It maximizes the utility of an existing area, saving you money on renovations or additional square footage.
  • Customization: Alcove home offices can be customized to fit your specific needs and preferences. You can choose the size, layout, and design elements that suit your work style and aesthetic preferences.
