2021, the year of the “Cloffice”. A what? A cloffice is a closet, nook, or small space in your home turned into an office.
Cloffice is the New Home Office, is one of the Pinterest Trends of 2021. Our apartments now fulfill more purposes than ever! An office, a place for leisure, workouts, and even dinner dates.
Working from home is here to stay (for a while), so our make-shift offices deserve an upgrade.

- Budget-friendly ideas for creating a cloffice today
1. Small nook turned office
Got a little nook like this in your apartment? Then why not make it a cute small office with floating shelves.
2. Wall mounted desk and shelves
This must be on my favorite ways to create an office in a small space. This wall mounted desk has shelves on top and takes up little space. I also like that the shelves on top create extra space for decor or storage.
3. Use free wall space
Be smart with your space and use free wall space to create a little office. Adding floating shelves on top can help to create that creative office feeling.
Use it for books, your work stuff, decoration and other things that make an inspiring workspace for you.
4. Office behind curtains
Turn a walk-in closet into an office by adding curtains to create a separate space. We’re not all so lucky to have a closet like this, so if you do, better make the most of it.
5. Floating shelf as desk
This is one of the simplest and cheapest ways to create a cloffice. Add a floating shelf with brackets to the wall, pick a good chair, add some drawers et voila: you’ve got yourself an office!
6. Closet office
Revamp your closet with shelves, printed wall paper and a spot to hang your computer screen. This is a super budget-friendly and simple way to repurpose a small walk in closet.
7. Small office corner
Ofcourse you can also keep the cloffice concept very simple but creating an office corner in your living room. Pick a small desk that coordinates with the rest of your living room decor and add some shelves with plants for a fresh look.
8. Tiny desk in bedroom
Your bedroom can also be a great spot to create a little office space. I love the combo of rustic wood and gold, as seen on the image below.
9. Create separate workspace
These cube organizers are heaven-sent for tiny apartments. Now that we do everything from home, it’s even more important to create separate spaces.
Place a cube organizer between your desk space and bedroom to create different zones in your apartment.
10. Maximize space with cabinets
If you turn a small room or corner into a home office, why not utilize the space to the fullest by adding cabinets?
Hanging cabinets above the desk is a great way to tidy away your stuff and make your cloffice look neat and organized.
11. Tiny wall mounted desk
The ultimate space-saving idea: a tiny wall mounted desk. Not all of us have the luxury of a spare room or closet to turn into our office.
If you have minimal space in your apartment, a wall-mounted desk in a cute spot is a great solution.
