Have you hopped on the closet office bandwagon yet? The nearest office (or "cloffice," as it is commonly called), may take some form. In some cases, individuals have opted to reuse unusable cupboards in their homes and convert them into mini workspaces. In other examples, we see walk-in closets that act as multipurpose spaces that display clothes and accessories and include a desk setup. No matter what type of cloffice speaks to you and your lifestyle the most, you cannot be wrong in applying one to your place. We've rounded up 16 of our favorite displays, including clever details including paint, wallpaper, and handy storage hacks that you won't want to miss.

In her New York City apartment, blogger Ana Page creatively constructed a hall closet to serve as a private workspace for her husband. The addition of sleek metal wall shelves and a pop of sage green turned the nook into a welcoming space in which to spend 9 to 5 productively.

Chic and Colorful
Blogger Chimi Ahaway's cloffice was a truly elaborate DIY project that she implemented on a $ 500 budget — the color that impressed us! She now has plenty of storage in her place and has a large workstation, fashion-forward accessories, and many other glam touches. Any fabric for this setup is bound to fall on top of radical heels.

Black, White, and Bold
A little wallpaper can go a lot further, and in the case of blogger Jessica Welling's closet, it actually made a statement. The black and white color shines and transforms utilitarian work from home space into an attractive nook. Welling used the closet's existing shelf system and now uses it to store work supplies.

This and That
Talk about fitting a lot of style into a small space! When creating her wardrobe, blogger Brooke Kristen used two types of wallpaper - faux shiplap and a geometric print - and lots of accent pieces to add personality to her desk area. The wicker pendant light and bistro chair looks super luxe and add a welcoming texture to space.

If bright colors are not your thing, do not be afraid - a cloffice does not have to be filled with vibrant prints and patterns in order to shine. Anastasia Casey, the founder of Identity Collective, designed a workspace contained in neutrals but warmed up the room with accent pieces such as Turkish rugs and an artistic chair. His clothes and belongings are neatly placed on the edge of the desk.

Cute and Crafty
Why not designate your cloffice as a craft space? Blogger Amy Page really adopted the theme by adding thoughtful touches to her home, including a chalkboard wall and a rolling supply cart. Celebrate your favorite artistic activity - be it scrapbooking, needlepoint, or collage - and establish a similar space in your home so that the crafting essential is always available whenever you need them.

Need a lot of storage? According to the example of the setup of blogger Ursula Carmona, you can still work a lot of drawers and shelves in a small closet. The best thing is that more surfaces equal more styling possibilities. Coloring everything in one color makes the setup look neat and harmonious rather than being too heavy.

All the Extras
Just because your office is in a closet does not mean that you have to skimp on stylish touches like sconces, shiplap, and an area rug. In fact, blogger Ashley Smith was able to incorporate all three of these elements and removed a filing cabinet due to #practicality.

Not All Neutral
Go for the unexpected and try an accent wall in the closet. Instagrammer Andrea Vowels added a pop of light pink behind her desk — as wallpaper — and topped the look with an attractive leopard print pillow.
