I’m converting a spare room into a home office. Any ideas on how I should set it up?
First, decide how you work best: Facing a window? Back to the door? What colors stimulate you? Once you’ve got a good idea of what works for you (and what doesn’t), it’s time to find your desk. A computer armoire, for example, takes up minimal space and stores a lot, but your legs can’t slide under all the way (annoying!). Consider pieces with display shelving plus cupboards for items best kept out of sight, like printers and fax machines. Take the modular route for an urban look. There are tons of furniture choices: desks, lateral files, bookcases and more. The thrill of this hunt is finding a stylish, functional piece to keep clutter at bay.
