This week’s Workspace of the Week is Erich’s homemade home office:
This week’s selection includes a homemade desk perfectly sized for its owners office space. When looking to save money or get exactly the piece you want, a custom desk can be a terrific solution. In addition to the custom desk, I like the cable management in the Blue Lounge CableBox below the desk along the back wall. The filing cabinet is practical, where it is used, and covered with fun stickers and magnets that might otherwise not have a place to live in the house. The plant is a nice touch and same goes for the Batman action figure, which personalize the space without adding clutter or obstructing valuable working area. I can’t tell if the framed item on the wall to the left of the desk is a chalkboard or artwork, but if it’s a chalkboard that is a good place to capture ideas, reminders, and schedules. The trash can is out of the way and not easily kicked over since it’s on the other side of the table support. Even the printer placement is in an easily reachable position should Erich need to use it. This is a great home workspace, and we thank Erich for sharing it with us.
