Carving out a dedicated home office in your home not only gives you a place to focus on work—the right home office can also increase your productivity and inspire creativity. While a laptop on your dining room table technically counts as a workspace, a room or nook devoted specifically to work can help you focus and create a clear delineation between work time and fun time. 

To help get your creative juices flowing, we've rounded up some amazing home office ideas, such as this one from elizagranstudio. Whether you have a whole room or just a small corner to spare, here are some of our favorite ideas.
