Layout Ideas For "Little Room of Horrors"

Good Questions

Q: My boyfriend and I have just rented a semi-furnished two bedroom apartment. Since we don't have any kids, we decided to turn the second bedroom into a home office. I've created a layout of the room as it is, but I'm so unhappy with how it came out that I've begun to call it "the little room of horrors".

The room came equipped with a white cupboard (which I cannot move), two white IKEA Lack coffee tables, and an ugly cane bookshelf (which, for the moment, is hiding behind the door). We bought a birch desk (with grey IKEA Vika Lerberg trestles) and a white DAW chair. The electrical outlets are placed below the desk (2) and beside the door (1). I'm looking for your suggestions to make the best of the space and light available. Thanks!
