18 Minimalistic Home Offices to Inspire You

By / Sep 10, 2013 / Inspiration

It doesn’t matter if you work from home or if you use your own space only at night or on the weekends, home offices are great! They give us a chance to create a space just the way we want it, with the things we need to do our job effectively. For some, this means filling the space with things that inspire, like lots of art and nick-nacks. But others take the “less is more” approach, opting for a minimalistic office where clean lines, less clutter, and only the bare essentials create the perfect work environment.

Remember to click the images to learn more about each space.

  • Dan Ralstein

    Seriously? By the looks of it, these people don’t do much all day.

      that’s what came to my mind

    minimalistic home office means “mac on the desk”.

    Al I can think is “Anal Retentive” though all are quite nice.

    I’d rather, Picasso’s studio, Rothko’s, Frankenthaler’s, Jobs, early Bukowski. The no office office is a ‘nice’ idea, but it’s not that I couldnt, I dont want to work in an arctic environs. lol

    Can you follow up with a “Maximalistic Home Offices” post? These spaces are…. nice. And clean. But not particularly inspiring to me personally.
    PS, I adore your blog. It’s so helpful and insightful. :)

      Absolutely. Let’s see some spaces where some actual work happens.

    Although some of these paces look beautiful, some do not look practical and some look just plain uncomfortable!

    Chairs without backs or chairs that don’t adjust… How much work are they planning to do? :)

  • Andy A

    Yeah these people have MODS (Mac on Desk Syndrome), the only reason why the offices are so shockingly bereft on anything that resembles or has ever resembled work is that they spend their whole lives at the Apple store (and possibly Berets-R-Us).

    Seriously, where’s the innovation?

    Where’s even the suggestion of something special?

    Where’s the 6 screen setup with a hand made modular/ergonomic wooden desk in a glass room surrounded by ferns with the PC hidden in a modern sculpture that lights up in different colours depending on who you just got an email from, powered by a waterfall…. something, ANYTHING.

    Please, mo more estate agent shots of an empty room with a MAC ON A DESK!

    Excellent post Henry, if such work place is provided at home than I think no one would like to go office.

    It is almost painful to view these sparse offices where you can actually see the surface of the desk. Something tells me that these guys are much more organized than I am.
