Get Organized in a Small Space with a Cloffice {Office Closet}

Often getting organized and making your life more functional comes down to making the most of every inch of space available to you.

That, and purging. Getting rid of stuff you don’t need is always crazy satisfying…

And once the purge is done, finding a space for all the important stuff is so much easier.

Once everything has it’s own spot, it is easy to stay organized. All you need to do is make sure you put things back in their “spot” after you use them.

And if that spot happens to be well thought out and easily accessible, like these “office in a closet” spaces (also known as Cloffices), then you are all the more likely to keep things organized.

Am I right?

Last week I shared our “Command Central Station” – a Command Center in a Closet. This is our little “home office” space, and we have jammed a ton of function into a 3 foot wide closet. Because everything has it’s place, it has been easy to keep ourselves organized.

  1. I love these ideas!! I am thinking of turning my playroom closet into a workspace for me to use when the kids go to bed! Love it.. glad to connect during work it wed. I am going to pin this!

  2. My office/study area is the dining table, which now has become a dumping ground for everything and anything. So i am having a desk made that works for me with LOADS of storage. These little offices/ areas are what inspired me to get moving and sorted. Will try to send pics when all is done.
    Thanks for all the inspiration and for kicking my b**t into action.

  3. I love all these office spaces! Utilizing small cramped spaces, making space work efficiently, and still making the space look cute– that all sounds splendid to me! I’m definitely going to use some of these fantastic ideas for my new apartment. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thanks for sharing my original Cloffice (did you know we coined that term at Shoestring Magazine!? I love that it’s still getting used so widely!) It’s been more than 5 years since I converted my closet into an office for our launch issue, and three homes later I’m feeling inspired again by all these creative variations you’ve shared. Thanks, Krista! ~Melissa

  5. I love all of these cl-offices! My hubsand just built me my very own craft closet to maximize the storage space in our home office and it is breathtaking! I can’t wait to get it all organized and share it with the world. Your command center is great! I really wish we had room for something like that in our home!
