Before & After: Amber's 2-For-1 Home Office Makeover

Before & After: Amber's 2-For-1 Home Office Makeover

Amber's home office began as a stylish space with plenty of potential. But the home office was hampered by clutter, with an excess of furnishing in a fairly tight space. By simplifying, editing, and replacing two for one desks, her home office was transformed into a work area with plenty of space for two.

Amber already started off with an attractive focal point: a DIY inspiration board. By replacing the two desks with a single continuous surface, the expanse of the bulletin board is mirrored beneath, adding a cohesive visual impression, while also maximizing her work area so much, she was able to fit an additional chair for a side-by-side layout.

You can get this look too! A Jonathan Adler lacquer hexagon trays accompanied by a lacquer home office set can give a place for everything in stylish fashion, while an affordable IKEA NUMERÄR kitchen countertop placed on top of filing cabinets can be as effective as any traditional desk (and a lot more affordable). The proof is in Amber's photos...a space now as inspiring as any of the elements tacked onto her inspiration board!
