I’m very lucky to have one of the bedrooms of the house to myself.
In 2008, I designed the room to get the maximum impact from the space using low-cost options. I have a U-shaped work space with a foundation of purchased unfinished cabinets that I painted white. I used file cabinets as the base with added cubbies to meet the same height. Along all three sides, I have space for a chair or rolling storage. One of the best things we did when we renovated the room was to add a simple laminate floor. Getting glitter or paper bits out of the carpet was impossible, and it made it ideal to get a rolling desk chair. I recently added new laminate countertops, as I previously had painted wooden ones we made at the time of installation. This has been an amazing upgrade as it’s easier to keep clean.
