Let's just say I'm regretting the decision. The most pressing issues are the lack of storage and the weird placement of the vent. It's centered right under the window, which to me was also the logical place to put the desk. The two are not playing well together. Take a peek at the current room setup so you can see what I mean:
|Drawn to scale! It's 10x10.|
What I didn't include was all the crap I have sitting in the corners because there's just nowhere else to put it. You can imagine.
So here's the dealio: I need some more furniture in there. (I could pretend I'm typing this at my desk, but I'm on the couch watching The Voice. Ooh, that's something else I should investigate: an office TV.) I need storage, and maybe down the line I need a different work table. But storage is first. Pronto.
Of course, there's always the Expedit. I know this is a dining room, but it's the right idea.
I could also move the desk, add towers, and get rid of the Hemnes dresser I have in there now. Looks great, but that's also more cashola. Hmm...
Wall shelving could be good. And I might try to turn my desk away from the wall like this, too. That stupid vent...
Hypothetically, this arrangement or something similar would be great:
Definitely feels more office-y, no? I could even get fancy and put a chair in front of my desk, just like people who work outside of their houses. Ooh la la. I'll keep you posted about any developments.
What does your office/studio/workspace look like? Are you having any issues with yours? If you could have the office of your dreams, how would it be?
