Basement rooms make popular home office spaces. They’re a part of the home set up, not far away from the kitchen and living areas, but quite contained in themselves that they can be perceived as a separate part of the home where you won’t be disturbed. They’re especially handy in open plan homes, as they can close you off from your home life for a few hours each day without being pulled into housework or family drama, but keep you close enough to your nearest and dearest during the day when you need them.
If you already work from home or you’re looking to make a move from the office block to be closer to your family and get rid of that dreaded commute, take a look at these images of cool basement home offices for the ultimate style inspiration:

The beauty of a basement home office is that it’s yours and yours alone – you are free to design however you would like without worrying about the overall theme of your home. This classic home office is peaceful and tranquil, perfect for working hard.
2. White Contemporary Office
Basements are usually lacking in light and inspiration. Tackle that with lots of bare lighting, white colours and modern contemporary accents
3. Narrow Home Office
Dispel the feeling of a home office with bigger windows and a large desk that reaches across your entire room. This is also practical for working on larger printed projects.

If you have a larger basement, be clever with space and create a positive environment that you can work from and invite clients along for meetings.

Your home office needs to be a reflection of your own style and a place that inspires you and motivates you. The key to creating a space you can work in is to fit it around your own lifestyle and personality.
