Home Office With Built-In Bookshelves and Television Insert
To meet her client's storage needs, designer Claire Paquin created this sleek home office for two using wood paneling and built-in bookshelves, cabinetry and desks. Even a large flatscreen television found a home as an insert on an unoccupied wall of the room. An area rug in light blue and orange completes her functional design.
Contemporary Study With Abstract Art and Glass Vases
Vases don't always have to be filled with flowers. Create a stylish design in a home office by filling clear vases with supplies like pencils and paper clips like in this study. Abstract artwork can also provide a little inspiration to kick-start productivity.
This simple home office space features a contemporary desk made from a mix medium grain wood and tiger stripe bamboo. The surrounding floor-to-ceiling windows offer natural light and a view of the backyard landscape.
A coffered ceiling makes a beautiful architectural statement overhead, while a navy-and-white rug grounds this masculine meets contemporary home office. A comfortable Chesterfield sofa pairs with a sleek glass coffee table for a relaxing seating area, while the distressed desk is a light-filled workspace.
Sliding wooden doors open up to expand the home office area or close to divide the hall from the office, helping to hide work or a project when needed. Large windows pour in tons of natural light, while built-ins and a classic desk provide functional work area.
This light-filled office looks out onto a zen-like courtyard with soft curves and a tall brick fence for privacy. A large grouping of framed, black-and-white photos fit with the home's vintage design, while the paneled walls continue onto the home's modern exterior.
Warm hues of brown and orange bring energy to this contemporary office space designed by HGTV Design Star contestant Alex Sanchez. Details like the Asian-style artwork add style and personality to the room.
Colorful artwork frames the doorway to this home office, making the entrance to the workplace a bit more exciting. Warm wood cabinets create an inviting atmosphere, and subtle green lighting adds interest overhead.
This multi-purpose room has clever tricks up its sleeve. The space functions as a home office most of the time, but when overnight guests are in town, a Murphy bed comes down between the bookcases. Built-in cabinets double as office storage and sleek nightstands. If the room needs more floor space, the desk also flips up to be flush with the zebrawood millwork.
A pedicure station and salon chair complete with footrest and large-scale mirror create an unusual, custom use for a home office space. A dramatic wallpaper mural fits the theme of the room, and a beaded chandelier provides the look of a chic, upscale salon.
The dividing feature between the office and living room of this renovated home is a revamped barn door that brings a bit of industrial rusticity to the contemporary design. The door slides on a metal pulley from one side to another for privacy's sake.
Traditional built-in bookshelves in this contemporary yet masculine home office are the perfect spot to display favorite accessories and books. Cabinets underneath provide hidden storage. Contemporary sconces are hung at the top of the shelves for spotlighting.
