Fewer than 26% of US households still have someone working remotely at least one day a week after the the harrowing experience of the pandemic.  Most people like to work in a private environment  for privacy and quietude, hence, the birth of the cloffice. Simply put, a cloffice is a closet, nook or other similar space in the home that has been turned into an office or even a sewing nook.  Of course I never referred to my space as a swoffice. 

Home offices are now the norm, but for those who don’t have an entire room to spare, a cloffice may be the answer to creating a functional work-from-home setup when space is a challenge. A cloffice packs the hardworking elements of a home office into an underused closet. Particularly useful in smaller homes and apartments with limited square footage, cloffices provide a creative way to maximize available space. 

The basic setup requires a desktop surface, storage, a light source and a chair or stool, which can all fit inside the typical bedroom or a linen closet in the hallway. At the end of the day, simply close the closet doors to conceal your workstation and keep your home looking clutter-free. 

If you are aesthetic as most of us are, wallpaper and a plant would be an interesting addition to make the area personal and fun.
