10 amazing ways to hide a clunky printer in your home office
The best DIY solutions for hiding a large printer in your home office
Modern home office layout

Printers are a functional and sometimes essential part of any home office. But one thing’s for sure — they don’t exactly blend into the background. A clunky printer may ruin your vision of a simple Scandinavian home office or coastal-themed reading room. If you're unsure where to hide a printer in your home office so it's not an eyesore, try these tips. You don't necessarily need a hidden printer cabinet (though that works, too) — just a little ingenuity.
Invest in an armoire or secretary desk
Traditional desks are practical, but they’re not exactly discreet. An armoire desk keeps your desk supplies and miscellaneous gadgets out of view while saving you much-needed space. This white and natural oak-colored armoire has an overall measurement of 67.3 inches in height, 31.5 inches in width, and 20.3 inches in depth. More importantly, the interior cabinet measures 33.1 inches in height, 30.2 inches in width, and 19.7 inches in depth.

If you want a smaller desk, consider a secretary desk like this manufactured wood desk that you can place in any part of the home. It measures 30 inches in height, 31.49 inches in width, and 20.07 inches in depth, while the cabinet interior is 19.55 inches in height, 26.54 inches in width, and 18.98 inches in depth. Note that accurate printer measurements will help determine if it fits inside a specific desk cabinet you’re considering. 
Hide it in a rolling file cabinet
For even greater portability, a rolling file cabinet is an ideal choice. Think about it: You can move the cart with the printer in tow anywhere around the house. If you ever need to make extra space for parties or want to rearrange your workspace on a whim, you’ll find that a wheeled cabinet is a worthy investment. This modern rolling file cabinet comes with a cubby box measuring 15.5 inches long, 12.25 inches wide, and 9.9 inches high. The whole box measures 16.4 inches long, 14.25 inches wide, and 13.8 inches high.

For those living with ADHD, you know it can be difficult just getting out of the house in the morning. ADHD comes with a set of challenges, including (but not limited to) trouble concentrating, being fidgety, acting without thinking, and being unable to sit still. It also means there is often so much going on inside your brain that you can easily become distracted. While it’s manageable with medication and other coping skills, setting yourself up with a good routine at home can make all the difference between a morning spent running around in circles and things running smoothly. One TikToker with ADHD shared her four tips for making things easier at home through home design—these home decor hacks are simple, easy to follow, and can make a big difference.
Design for organization
TikToker The_avantgarde (Julie Sousa) posted the video sharing her tips and tricks, and it’s easy to see why so many people have liked and commented. Her first tip for staying organized is one we can all use—ADHD or not. Instead of throwing clothes (both clean and dirty) on your bedroom chair or floor, buy a two-sided laundry basket. One side is for dirty clothes that need to be washed, and the other is for clean clothes that need to be put away. It makes hectic mornings a little bit easier to manage and you can guarantee you won’t wear yesterday’s socks.
