Tour this modern small pocket office perfect for working from home, or even a homework station. This post contains affiliate links.
My husband and I both work from home. Now my work is a little different from his. Most of his days are spent in our home office, and mine are more sporadic. I spend a lot of time moving around the house while I work. When we designed our floor plan we planned for hours on the flow of everything. We knew we both worked from home and how we both functioned best. Ultimately I just wanted a small pocket office that allowed me to shut the door if necessary. Basically, somewhere to keep my computer and a few pieces of camera equipment. Which works great when the kids are home and I need a little seclusion to get some work done.
If you don’t work from home, I still think these are a great addition to a floor plan if you’re designing your home because they can act as a homework space, where you do the bills, keep paperwork, etc without taking up very much of your square footage.

Creating a Pocket Office
One of the benefits of a small yet stunning pocket office is that it’s not expensive to furnish, especially if you don’t intend to spend a lot of time there. All I needed was a desk, somewhere to keep my camera equipment, and a desk chair.
I shared all about my standing desk here and the benefits of having one, which holds true! I absolutely love the ability to walk into my office and go straight to my computer without sitting. Sometimes I just need to look at something real quick and this keeps me on my feet moving!
Desk Area in a Pocket Office
A pocket by definition is small, so most of the space is taken up with a desk. I wanted to keep things clean, simple and organized. I have a few boxes on my desk that allow me to keep the few stray papers that I have, as well as some stamps, etc. Other than that it’s really just my computers.
Home Office Gallery Wall
I chose to put a simple gallery wall above my computer to add some interest to this small space. Then I balanced it out by adding the faux tree and lamp on either side!
I even used some digital art on my laptop screensaver to accent the gallery wall!
Pocket Office Details
On the left side of the desk, you will notice a small white table that I use for my printer. It has one drawer which allows some to store paper and extra printing supplies. This came in handy when I printed my gallery wall!
Having this storage cabinet is one of the most exciting things for me! It provides the perfect place for tripods, camera equipment, and just a few odds and ends I need to keep on hand for kids’ homework and things like that.
My new chair came from FlexiSpot along with my new standing desk, and I have to say it is extremely comfortable! When I want to take a break from standing the ergonomic chair provides great relief to my back as I continue to work! If you are looking for a comfortable chair, I’d definitely recommend this one! The best part, my husband even tried it out and loves it, and he’s not easy to please. He’s 6’3″ and has a very long torso so office chairs have never been an easy find for him. Considering this work for both of us and I’m 5’3″ I’d say it’s pretty accommodating!
