This week’s Workspace of the Week is Kathleen V’s small space family work center:
I am really impressed with Kathleen V and her family for coming up with such a terrific and organized office solution for their small space. In Kathleen V’s words:
This is our living room art table/homework table/workspace in our small San Francisco home (the view you are seeing is the bay and Marin Headlands). We installed the mirror to get more of that view reflected into the house.
Right now you see table ready for my two kids to do some artwork or homework. We added a glass top to the table to protect the wood, so the kids can go crazy with glue, sharp pencils, whatever!
The drawers on the right are filled with all their supplies. My laptop is tucked just below the ream of paper. The back of the table is finished and has no lower support, so this has also been used as additional seating for 4 for Thanksgiving dinner!
I also liked the second image, which demonstrates how Kathleen V uses the area for her work with the addition of a dining chair:
More from Kathleen:
Here you see the table set up as a workspace (I’m a web developer). I use a comfortable dining room chair that I grab from a few feet away in the next room. The table drawer is actually a keyboard tray, and I use a cordless keyboard and mouse. I’m able to grab some paper from the storage on the right, but otherwise I’m paperless.
Thank you, Kathleen, for sharing your workspace with our Unclutterer community!
Want to have your own workspace featured in Workspace of the Week? Submit a picture to the Unclutterer flickr pool. Check it out because we have a nice little community brewing there. Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.
