In homes that don’t have the luxury of a spare room for an office, you have to get creative. One way to make a home office in a house lacking space is to use the hallway.
Here are 13 examples of home offices in a hallway.
1. A long floating desk with a narrower shelf above it has turned this hallway into a functional workspace, and the space is kept bright by the skylight above.

2. Right at the top of these stairs sits a perfect open home office space. A large bookshelf along the back wall and a floating desk provide the same amount of storage space and work space that you’d likely get in an actual room.

3. An all white work area in this long hallway makes for a bight space to get to work, and the long shelves provide plenty of extra storage space.

4. Soft lighting from above diffuses throughout the hallway where we find this home office. Shelves built into the sides of the office provide storage, and the desk is long enough to provide work spaces for two people.

5. A large home office sitting at the top of the stairs has lots of work space, ample storage solutions, and a warm wood desk top to make the space feel cozy and inviting.

6. A long desk running the length of the window provides an excellent space to study or work from and has a nice view to help keep you inspired.

7. On the upper floor of this home, there’s a wood railing that acts as an ideal space to set up shop and get some serious work done, while still being able to be connected to what’s going on in the rest of the house.
