Home Office at the End of the World
In a previous post I lusted after various home office designs and tried to incorporate them into my own home office.
My issue isn’t space, but I’m having troubles configuring an arrangement that incorporates everything I need to utilize the space. So far I figure I need a writing desk, a work space (oversize desk/table) for projects, a computer cart on casters, shelving/bookcases, a couch/day bed type thing and a few peripherals.
The computer cart is key as I use my computer as a TV/DVD so it needs to be able to move from room to room without having to negotiate wires or components.
So far I am liking this Mikael computer cart from Ikea.
And thinking about pushing two of these together to make a large square workspace.
and probably using another one with a longer table top as a writing desk. I am a bit of a table enthusiast, so I am going to need to restrain myself a bit.
Also supply storage is a bit of a pain as I haven’t found a system that works with my style of usage. Just putting like items together and then organizing those groupings hasn’t worked well for and as a result I find that I have lots of redundancy but still lack essential office products. The challenge comes because I need to see items I’m using, but I abhor clutter. Clear storage containers are wonderful, so I’m hoping to force myself to use them again.
What does your home office space look like? How do you arrange your stuffs to ensure maximum productivity?
