This low-ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial is now a lively children’s workspace. Artwork—hung from Ikea picture rails and curtain rods with clips—fills the room with vibrant color. In this electronics-free zone, the kids paint, draw and play games at their white craft table.
Designer Justine Sterling transformed a low-ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial to create a studio. It’s a walkout basement with two windows providing decent light, but it was very ugly with exposed pipes, a horrible acoustic tile ceiling and old sticky vinyl flooring. At roughly 450 square feet, there was a good amount of space to create a project room for the children. The room is now a lively children's workspace.
This home office functions as an art studio for children and a small workspace for the adults. The large cabinet at the back of the room has plenty of storage and works as a display for photos and art.
The nook is transformed into an eclectic-style homework area for the kids. A gray settee and sleek white chairs pull up to a chic, contemporary table that functions as a workspace. Against the wall are tall bookshelves that features both open and closed storage for organization.
Featuring a laundry area, workspace and wash station, this super utility space is truly the ultimate "do" room. It offers plenty of countertop space to complete laundry-related tasks, plus a quiet place for both kids and adults to work. Design by Hillary Reed Interiors, LLC
With multiple work and homework areas, as well as central table for crafts or building projects, the bright and airy home office is designed as a creative workspace for both parents and kids. A rolling library ladder adds an extra level of storage to the space.
Open shelving provides much-needed storage in this Craftsman-style home office. A partner desk sits in the center of the space, providing a workspace for mom and dad, as well as a homework center for the kids. A large window overlooking the backyard pool brings natural light into the space.
This multipurpose living room serves as a stylish retreat for Dad, a workspace for Mom, a playroom for the kids and even a quick spot to eat dinner on weeknights. Designer Genevieve Gorder used practical and functional furnishings to make sure the room can clearly serve each role in a chic and organized way.
Think outside the box when creating a workspace that needs to accommodate more than one person. In this shared boys’ bedroom, a Parsons-style desk allows multiple seats to be stored underneath. The working wall affords kids a low-commitment way to tape artwork and mementos right at their eye level. Gold garden stools provide versatile seating options that can accommodate group study sessions.
