Home Office Organization: Peek at a Project
PEEK AT A PROJECT
Home Office Organization: Explore the Options
A recent project has us exploring options to create home office organization. We recently updated this homeowner's kitchen, added a main floor bathroom, and designed a master suite. Their unused sunroom will make a perfect new home office. With double doors into the room, lots of windows and natural light, and location off the living room, the sunroom is an inviting and convenient place to set up a home office. Let's explore the options...
The Table Desk
The living room demolition was all about getting rid of the visual noise. With the multiple levels of tiered soffits overhead, and the multiple niches over the fireplace the living room had a lot of visual noise that felt overwhelming and distracting.
If your home office is designed with places to store all the necessities a table desk without storage works well. The open design of a table desk offers flexible space to work on either side of the desk and lots of knee room to work freely. In this home office organization is key. and with windows on both sides you might want to change your view.
With a table style desk floating in the center of the room, the closed nearby storage offers a place for everything and a clutter free approach. The open storage under the desk in this home office is convenient and out of sight.
Room With A View
A room with a view, why not take advantage of it? With windows on all sides this home office provides a lot of natural light. Centering the desk in the room under the windows sets it up for an organized symmetrical layout.
The Traditional Desk
In this home office, placing the desk under the windows allows a lot of convenient storage next to the desk and a cohesive built-in look to unify the room.
For the daydreamer who will be distracted looking outdoors placing your desk on an interior wall may work well for you. It allows you to hang your favorite artwork over your desk or a functional tackable space. In this home office placing the desk facing the wall also means you are facing the doors to the room.
The L-Shaped Desk
The L-shaped desk works great for people who need lay-by space to spread things out nearby while they are working on them. In this office the L-shaped desk works well along the interior wall, keeping the window wall free for storage.

This was a fun post to read! Thanks for providing these options to consider.
I have to have windows to look out when I’m working, so that would be my choice of these 4, but I also love the idea of having the L shaped desk to spread out.

This is so great! Really useful information to help people create a workspace that is efficient and lovely. I recently updated our home office for my work from home hubby and we took advantage of the l-shaped desk and a beautiful view of the pond across the street.
