Previously in Sharpen Your Space, i worked on a A Rustic Modern Office & game room) with indications from the owner on multiple aspects of the project. But for this second entry, i decided to change up the approach with a pretty narrow office room submitted by Heinous Bananus, I sent the redditor a little questionnaire in order to figure out what kind of home office he would feel most comfortable in, & here's the resulting design.
First things first, let's start by reading the redditor's message & get takeaways such as the features needed & preferred style. Although the message for this one does give away some info, it wasn't as complete as needed so i went on investigating on my own.
The room's Original state:
Here are my thoughts on the original state of the room:
The desk was facing the left wall & is (sizewise) quite honestly not fit for a serious work-from-home transition.
The wall color is a bit too dull & doesn't let the room feel spacious, nor does it give the vibe of a home office i'd want to work in.
A home office is already very much an alone zone. Which is why you should make that TV & chill area your social zone, so that one seating's gotta go right now, to be replaced with literally anything that's not ONE seat.
In terms of layout, the original one is good so we'll go from there, with one change being the orientation of the work-zone as indicated in the floor plan on the right.
An "adult" home office
One of r/HeinousBananus's answers to the questionnaire stipulates that he loves FC Barcelona (the soccer club). Even tho we want to make an "adult" home office, there's no reason to deny our true colors, which is why i decided to use FCB to apply a theme to this interior (in a subtle way). & here are the results:
