Many people don’t have the luxury of separate spaces for a home office and guest bedroom. But this room is proof that a multi-purpose space like this can be quite chic! Tucking your desk under built-in shelves creates a distinct workspace. And opting for a daybed rather than a traditional bed makes the space feel less dual-purpose when not hosting guests.
Do you and your partner both need at-home work stations? And space to host guests? And only have one room in your house to spare for all these uses? Relax — you can create a multi-purpose room that suites all these needs. For hosting guests, opt for a daybed for day-to-day versatility. Then place desks across the room from each other so you each have your own workspace — but opt for matching chairs for a more cohesive look.
Have a high-traffic dining room? For a dining room that has an exterior door, add some entryway items to add functionality in the space. Select a durable runner that stands up to foot traffic, a bench, and a coat rack to provide a place to unload when you get home. (You have to drop your stuff off somewhere -- might as well make it pretty!)
When working with limited space, try finding pieces that can serve multiple purposes. An industrial desk brings office functionality to your living room but can also be used as a side table when sitting on the sofa. A pair of poufs double as extra seats when friends are over!
Spark a child's creativity in their very own bedroom play corner. A kids teepee is a great little escape for a little one to explore space and have a cozy spot to read a book. A child's size table and chairs is perfect for tea parties and playdough parties alike!
This quartet of industrial shelving complements the long dining room table. When filled with books and favorite objects, it brings instant warmth and charm to a large dining room that becomes not only a place for meals but also serves as a library, work area or meeting room for a home office. Pops of color add warmth and an inviting feel to the metal-infused furniture pieces!
Small squarefootage does not need to equal small design. This jewel toned industrial office makes the best use of its small footprint by incorporating a "T" layout. This unique layout allows for 3 workspaces in an area that would traditionally only hold two.
The dining room has taken on new life as the core gathering place in our homes. For many of us, this room has become our workspace, cafeteria, home school, and even family game room all in one. For when your dining space turns into a homeschool zone, eep all your kiddos’ school supplies organized in baskets or bins. Every morning they can grab their basket and easily stash it all away at the end of the school day. This will keep your table ready for its next adventure.
There’s more than meets the eye with this walnut storage bed. The frame of this bed conceals six deep drawers, offering you the space equivalent of a roomy dresser! How’s that for maximizing space? We’ve paired this bed with a matching nightstand, and topped the look with a black and white color palette for a cohesive look in this small studio bedroom space.
With working from home becoming ever so common these days, we often look to our dining room to become our new at-home office space. Spralling out at a large dining table with comfortable chairs is the ultimate way to spike your productivity. Layer in office essentails such as smaller storage pieces, baskets, and task lighting to make this the ultimate work-zone at home.
