10 ideas for furnishing an office area in the living room

Have you always dreamed of a large, well-equipped office conducive to concentration, but unfortunately you do not have the necessary space? Don’t worry, the desk goes unobtrusively into the living room or imposes itself to add an unusual yet stylish touch. Suspended, integrated into a piece of furniture or under an attic, discover furnishing ideas for office space in the living room.

1. Place the office under the attic in the living room

To make the best use of the space in your living room in the attic, build your office under the roof. Because contrary to popular belief, the attic can be a real asset. Its angles, shapes and architectural features make it a unique value. A few pieces of furniture are enough to stage this room, so simply set up a narrow table as a desk and you’re done. All you have to do is take the measurements and have a good eye for decoration. Sunk under the wall, the desk blends into the decoration of the living room.

2. Use colour to visually set the office apart in a living room

In this ultra-pure white living room, the office space is delineated through the use of coloured zelliges. This visual demarcation, which runs along the wooden plank, clearly separates the office area from the rest of the room. So if you have the space you need, don’t hesitate to put your desk in a corner far from the sofa. Then go for the colour of your choice and the material of your choice! Your desk will bring a colourful touch and will be an integral part of your living room without invading the living space. To visually separate the office from the living room, you can also lay a carpet under the workplace.

3. Hang the desk on a wall in the living room

The wall-hung secretary remains the best space-saving solution to create an office space in the living room. And with good reason, it doesn’t take up any floor space and knows how to make itself very small. When closed, it becomes almost invisible and acts as a console. When open, the folding door becomes a functional work surface, ideal for putting down the computer or just writing… The plus points? Once the door to the hanging desk is closed, the whole mess is hidden! Finally, the compartments, like the drawers, allow you to store and organize all the office accessories. In other words: a more than perfect layout!
