Putting Office Space In The Bedroom

Dear Style Studio Team,

I am restricted to having my office space in my bedroom.

I am interested in a desk with at least one file drawer and adjoining table space to hold my printer and shredder, although these items could be incorporated into the desk, above or below.

I will also be eventually getting a new bed with headboard and two nightstands with lamps.

Below are two pictures: one from the doorway entrance and one taken with the windows in the back of me.

Bedroom With Office Space


Having a working office in a bedroom is very doable when you combine the right pieces with efficient surroundings.

We think the right piece for your space is our San Marino Desk in a Distressed Ochre Yellow. The construction features of this piece will help accommodate your office equipment and all desk essentials can be neatly concealed behind the drop down front!

For your filing we recommend adding a File Storage Ottoman in Zebra Natural Woven. This flexible piece can store files and provide your office seating! It can then tuck neatly beside the desk when not in use! Consider adding one of our Message Boards or a Woven Office Wall Pocket for quickly organizing papers and receipts … organizing tools are always important in home office!

We recommend keeping a simple approach when selecting your headboard. We suggest the Camden Headboard in Danish Oatmeal.

Add our Louis XVI Side Tables on each side of your bed. Because space is a bit tight in your room, these efficient little pieces will provide the perfect fit.

The Distressed Gray over White finish on the side tables is a flawless choice to pair with the fabric headboard.

A couple of lamps, like our Ellis Glass Lamps in blue, along with a bit of editing to your current accessories and you will have a beautiful retreat in which to rest!

We always love to see “before and after” pictures … we can’t wait to see yours!
