How to Turn a Closet into your Home Office

This week’s project at Holzman Interiors was an exercise in space planning. We all know space is precious in our New York City apartments and we need to squeeze our lives into them. Most of my clients can’t afford designating a full room or bedroom for a work station but, if you are lucky we can re-divide a closet and make one space function as two.

Hire an interior designer or architect and contractor to make sure that the walls we plan to adjust are not load bearing. Sometimes a header of steel is needed for such a change, but, unlikely in a NYC apartment.

Then make the adjustments on the floor plan deciding the amount of space you will want for your home office and how many chairs you want in the seating area.

Plan a design. Here are several photos that I used for inspiration to show my clients what they can have.

You will need board approval, permits and proper insurance from the contractor and subs he is using on the job.

Voila, enjoy. A good quality work station/home office will always be appreciated as a re-sale plus!

This is the results you can get from a walk in closet…

  1. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?


  2. You can certainly see your skills in the work you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. Always go after your heart.


  3. Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated
