Home offices are becoming increasingly common as evermore people work from the domestic environment. The Internet has enabled remote working, while rapid developments in computer hardware mean that all office activities can be carried out on very simple setups, often needing little more than a laptop, desk, telephone or mobile device. As such, home office interior design can be very simple and uncluttered, stylishly minimalist and arranged for maximum productivity. This post brings together 20 examples of neat and minimal office setups to amaze and inspire.
1. My Office by Travis Isaacs.

2. Urban Cabin – Writer’s Office by Jeremy Levine.
Jeremy Levine Design created this exquisite urban office interior, with a clean desktop setup, easily accessible reference library and windows that open onto views of the San Fernando Valley in California.

3. Brooklyn Home Office by Mackenzie Kosut.
Mackenzie Kosut’s brilliant home office is a neat and tidy setup with great views of the Brooklyn skyline. One window panel has been used as a brainstorming clear ‘whiteboard’ to sketch out ideas, while the owner’s pet Pomeranian dog has made itself at home in one of the office’s storage units.

13. Basement Office by Adam Selwood.
The best office designs make the most of all available space. In this case, the designers refurbished their home’s basement into a purpose built work and living area. The office is completely contained in a wardrobe unit, with the monitor mounted on a glass shelf, keyboard and mouse below on retractable drawer. Careful use of lighting creates a pleasant ambience, while the sliding doors mean the whole office can be hidden when not in use.
