Contemporary Home Office
The unused dining room was the perfect way to add a home office without using a much needed bedroom.
We remodeled this 1982 house in 2006 when the homeowner first purchased their home and were pregnant with baby #3. At that time the biggest challenge was to move the powder bath out of the center of the house and open up the walls for a large kitchen and family room combination. We took some space from the third garage stall and created a powder bath and walk in closet.
Sixteen years and 4 boys later, this family of 8 – with 6 boys between ages 11-21 – they needed more bedrooms and a bathroom. We started designing over the garage and quickly decided to put a 12’x 44’ three story addition on the back of the house. This remodel included two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen/dinette, sitting room, office, laundry room/pantry, mudroom, and ping-pong/TV room in the basement.
The focal point of this home office is the striking Navy cabinetry – our client’s favorite color – that not only adds a touch of personality to the space but also provides essential storage for books, files, and even pencil drawers. The room also features dedicated space for a copier, making it an efficient workspace for all needs.
The centerpiece of the office is a natural maple desk that not only provides a spacious work area but also offers ample storage. Side shelves were cleverly incorporated for storing coloring supplies and books, making it a versatile space for both work and play. It’s perfect for the kids to join in after school and work alongside their parent.
To ensure a harmonious look, we matched the crown molding on the cabinets with the existing features in the room. The grey-stained maple floor, extending from the nearby updated kitchen into the office, creates a unified and sophisticated look.
Back in 2020, before working from home became the norm, we embarked on a project to convert an unused formal dining room into a stunning home office. Little did we know how crucial this space would become in the following years. Our client was ahead of the curve, preparing for remote work with a beautifully designed home office.
