I was at someone’s home the other day and we walked by a large walk in closet with a desk in it. The owner saw me hesitate and peer in. She said “my son calls this closet with a desk in it his “cloffice.” It’s a closet/office combo. What a clever design idea. She went on to tell me how he feels very cozy in the cloffice. He has no distractions and enjoys the silence and confines of the space. I asked if he had ADHD. She looked at me a bit surprised and said “yes, how did you know?” I answered that a large closet with a desk in it is a great environment for someone with sensory and attention issues. The space allows her son to focus and makes him feel anchored and safe. This boy listened to his sensory needs and addressed them on his own. He is tune with his body. Design with direction. “The Cloffice.” Not to be confused with “The Office.”

Do you have a favorite space to read or work in your home? We would love to hear.
