Office in a closet. Her small San Francisco home didn’t have space for a home office, so Sara Menuck converted her living room closet into a chic, streamlined workstation. For $1,000, including materials and labor, her designer removed the closet pole and added an upper covered storage area, a floating middle shelf, and a work surface with an almost-hidden drawer. Says Menuck, “I hardly ever close the doors.”
Keep it simple, paint things white and edit down your display. It's a kind of magic trick that makes anything look more pulled together. Let in the light, a two-story bookcase of wood and glass acts as a room divider and light chimney, bringing sunlight into the parlor of a remodeled San Francisco Victorian.
Secret shelf. A bank of cabinets divide the stairway from the dining room in this house, but it’s the covered shelf above that gets an A+ for space use. The wide open shelf hides paperwork and craft supplies out of sight.
