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.
