Don’t you hate it when you suddenly realize that you’ve done something you swore you would never do? That’s what happened with me and the home office design ideas I used for the One Room Challenge last year (you can see it HERE).
You may look at the pictures and think…so what’s the big issue? The problem is I made some decisions that prioritized making the room look pretty over making it functional. And that completely breaks one of my “comfortable home” decorating rules.
If a room doesn’t function the way you want it to, no amount of beautiful furniture and decor is going to make it comfortable. This is especially true in an area where you spend a lot of time working!
So I’ve been spending some time lately adding the functionality into the room that should have been there to start with. You might remember that I started this process a couple of months ago when I swapped out the desk chair (in case you missed it, you can read about that process HERE), and created some new storage spaces (which you can see HERE).
Now I finally have the whole office working the way I want it to, and I am so much happier! Read on to see what I did.
