Cozy Contemporary Desk Nook With Wall-to-Wall Shelves
Make the most of an awkward space by giving it function. As seen on HGTV's Design On a Dime, the slanted ceilings in this attic bedroom created a hideaway nook with no real purpose. By adding wall-to-wall shelves and a desk, the area was immediately turned into a private office. This new space adds value to the home and is a feature potential buyers are sure to remember.
"We had been using our garage as a dumping ground for tools, lawn equipment, toys and discarded furniture for years," says designer Suzanne Dingley of Suzanne Dingley Interiors. But when her husband started his own business, the couple realized they had the perfect spot for a home office. They installed new windows, doors, floors, drywall, lights and insulation. "The garage had a peaked ceiling with rafters, which we chose to make a feature to bring some character to an otherwise rectangular box." Replacing the overhead garage door with two sets of French doors brought in light and charm.
Working from home can be a bit dreary if you're tucked away in a plain box of a room. French doors offer privacy, let the sun shine in, close off messy areas and give you a different scene to rest your eyes on.
This bright white space perfect for a kids' study room mixes colorful patterns with traditional elements to create a fun, lively feel. Floral armchairs share modern white coffee table with a round wooden desk beside.
Wide yellow stripes on the wall add flair to this small home office. A simple pseudo trestle-style desk sits beneath two blue graphic prints and a cushioned chair provides a comfy spot from which to work or study.
This light-filled home office is built for organization and convenience. Built-in shelves offer ample space to store supplies, and drawers throughout the space provide hidden storage. A custom step stool built into the window seat gives the homeowner's furry friend access to a sunny napping spot.
A home office with an industrial style desk is anchored by an animal hide rug. An over-sized bulletin board with cork tiles is bordered with personal photographs. Multiple low-hanging ceiling lights and a large window provides ample lighting. The polka dot wallpaper and unique accessories make it the perfect space for creative inspiration.
Sophisticated Office With Dark Wood Desk & Pineapple Lamp
The richness of the dark wood desk is accentuated by the light beige background in this home office. A tufted silver chair and pineapple lamp add some fun to the design while remaining functional. Plants and pictures complete the space with a personal touch.
