This kitchen is truly multi-purpose with the addition of a desk in an out-of-the-way area. The large desk space is created from extra cabinetry and butcher block which matches the kitchen style perfectly.
This updated kitchen offers a contemporary office nook with a glossy orange accent wall and convenient built-in shelving. A simple gray desk chair and plant decor offer the finishing touches to the space.
This organized home office is conveniently located in a kitchen nook, which gives the adults of the house a central place to pay bills and take care of business, as seen on HGTV's Design Star. "Nobody's dream is to have their kids' stuff strewn all over the kitchen," judge Vern Yip says. "Just because it's supposed to look lived-in doesn't mean it has to look messy."
In large rooms, pay close attention to the shape, size and scale of any featured artwork. When small subjects are placed across a generously sized room, they lose their impact and appear more as visual clutter than a focal point. Here, in the multipurpose workspace located off the kitchen, an oversized fiberglass Trojan horse grounds the space and creates a focal point from across the great room.
A floating desk drawer provides a handy corner for paying bills or reading recipes in this small kitchen office nook. The desk is painted the same cool blue as the kitchen cabinets with a multicolored striped chair adding extra color to the space.
This kitchen features a small office area and playful dining nook for additional functionality. Traditional walnut cabinetry, a classic wood dining table and a vintage-style light fixture combine with contemporary artwork and a sleek orange banquette for a transitional look.
The black and white base of this home's palette serves as a springboard for imaginative layering of bright colors and bold patterns. Here, a tiny nook over the kitchen becomes a vibrant home office with tropical green wallpaper.
This modern office nook is located in a light and bright section of the home's kitchen. A floating white cabinet is positioned above the matching desk, while a brass lamp sits atop the desk to match the cabinet's hardware. A white chair provides a comfortable spot for working.
This open plan kitchen features sleek white cabinets paired with a gray marble countertop and polished concrete floors. The ample space allows room for a small breakfast nook with a round table and several dining chairs, in addition to a convenient corner home office.
Brass hardware gives this white, streamlined kitchen a dose of warmth and classic style. The island features a top with a modern waterfall edge, and acrylic barstools all but disappear in the space. A nook off the kitchen serves as a compact home office.
A mix of neutral tones create a fun mosaic tile backsplash between the white cabinetry in this contemporary kitchen. The tile appears again in a little built-in office nook beneath a glass door cabinet. Two orange pendant lights add a pop of color above the small island and set of tall bar chairs.
The open concept kitchen flows into a large, open living space that features a dining area, an office nook and an oversized armchair. The dining area offers a round wood table and four upholstered chairs for intimate, comfortable dining.
A high-top stainless steel table against the existing structural column incorporates additional counter space and seating in this open living space. This also helps divide and define the neutral contemporary living room and adjacent kitchen space, while still feeling open. The living room side of the space has a small home office nook, providing a convenient spot in which to get some work done.
