Do you use your rooms to their fullest potential? By that, I mean do you stick with a room’s original purpose or are you willing to switch it up to suit your lifestyle.
I am currently working on a home office for a client. It was originally a living room but since there is a large cosy family room just down the hall, this room was looking pretty, but was rarely used. Since both my client and her husband work from home, they decided to make better use of this prime and sunny location.
Some minor renovations were done first by my client, to ensure a successful transition -
1. Closing in the stair wall that runs beside the room, so that french doors could be added so that the office can be closed off from the rest of the house;
2. changing the half wall, that divides the space from the entry way, into a full wall. The addition of long thin frosted windows ensures that light will pass through and keep the entry way feeling bright.
Here’s what we have so far for this feminine and practical home office.
There will be a small sitting area with a television so this comfy chair and a half fit the bill perfectly.
We need to live in our homes and having barely used rooms is really a waste of space, so much better to change it up for your family’s needs. So have you or would you change a room’s function to suit your lifestyle?
