Layout help and more for home office

5 years ago

My husband's home office needs a spruce up. The carpet needs to be replaced, the walls painted and I believe the layout should be different. It is such a long skinny room it has me puzzling.

This is a dedicated home office but including a daybed, or a small pull out sofa would be a plus. A bookcase or some built in shelves would be appreciated.

The room is 10x16, it has one window, one door, and two post and beam details; one is fairly flush to the wall. Right now there is a built in desk along the long wall. My husband uses half of it my son had a PC set up at the other end but he is no longer living at home. The desk has tarps over it now because I am patching the ceiling. I was thinking that a good way to make use of the nook created by the post would be a built in bookcase, or I also thought about creating an L-shaped desk incorporating the post and the nook. I was thinking then I could get my husband to have the messier portion of his desk in the nook.

How would you arrange this space?
