Concealable Power Station Turns Kitchen Island Into Workspace
The owners of this Atlanta townhome both work from home from time to time and love entertaining. A power station with USB outlets is discreetly hidden in the top of the kitchen island and revealed by pressing on the top of it. With the power station accessible, the island becomes a comfortable spot to work or charge cell phones.
Texture and color keep the eye roaming in this contemporary home office, where a dining table doubles as a work-station. A light wood ceiling makes the space feel larger and a blue door adds a pop of personality.
Second Floor and Loft Area at Pereira & O'Dell San Francisco
The creative spaces of Pereira & O'Dell extend through two floors and a loft. The first floor contains the reception area and advertisers' individual work stations. The second floor is home to conference rooms, and the loft section of the building houses executive offices.
This home office features exposed brick and cement walls, a dead giveaway of its urban setting. Black metal floating shelves provide storage above a wall-to-wall desk and modern desk chair. A cherry red countertop adds a pop color to the spacious work station.

Neutral Contemporary Home Office With Built-in Bench
Whether it's homework central or a work station for Mom and Dad, this chic home office keeps everyone comfortable with a long desk that fits up to three people and a built-in bench. Wall-mounted shelves and under-bench drawers solve the storage problem without taking up tons of floor space.
The guest bedroom is all about unique texture. A comfortable, velvet daybed finds a home to the side of the room adding softness to the space while geometric prints give the room a funky feel, and a leather desk and chair give the room a work station. Finally, a cool, woven rug covers a stained carpet, completing the guest room's transformation in this rental apartment.
Rustic-Modern Kitchen with Ceiling Beams, Modern Appliances
Soft grays mix with the natural wood tones in this rustic, yet modern cabin retreat. Integrated appliances and a modern island with a sleek waterfall edge bring a streamlined look to the space, while timbered walls and ceiling beams emphasize the home's natural setting and log cabin feel. Windows are strategically placed to allow the chef to enjoy the view while working at the cooking station or sink.
As part of the Parker home transformation in Atlanta, GA, licensed contractor Chip Wade took out a number of walls in the kitchen and living room to make an open air living area. The formal dining area is now adjacent to the great room and part of the open flow of the space. The transformation included a large kitchen island with ample storage and cooking area along with a work station that mechanically lifts for the kids to do their homework. The living area also includes a multi-use ottoman for everyone in the family-including the dog. This creates a central area for the kids to work and spend time with their parents, as seen on DIY Network's Elbow Room.
