- This homeowner made the transition to remote work during COVID and was feeling uninspired by his bland office with its blank white walls.
- The layout wasn’t very Zoom-friendly with poor natural lighting, a basic backdrop that accentuated a cluttered closet and tiny dry erase board, and a desk that faced the wall 30” in front of him.
- Carpeting made the office chair wheels stick when rolling and limited the homeowner’s ability to work comfortably.
- A lack of storage made it challenging to stay organized and the homeowner wanted to elevate the professionalism of the space.
- We purchased a more functional, streamlined standing desk and positioned it to face the window, then installed a light filtering roller shade to soften glare on Zoom calls.
- The carpet was replaced with sisal, a durable and sound absorbing material that allows the homeowner to roll his office chair freely and quietly.
- We used a grass cloth wallpaper with a horizontal grain to create the illusion of a bigger space and offer additional sound absorption that inspires better focus.
- We removed the closet and opened up the space with a back desk that has shelving to showcase books and office accessories. The back desk also features filing cabinets and storage for work documents, and a recessed space in a rich accent color to add depth and a touch of casual elegance.
- Readjusting the layout created space for a guest chair where friends or family can come to keep him company during breaks.
- We added a trendy bar cart, so a quick refreshment to recharge is always in convenient reach—no disruptions to his work flow necessary!
- Since the homeowner’s spouse was providing this office refresh as a birthday gift, we worked closely with subcontractors to wrap up the project in only 2 weeks.
