A Quick and Easy Home Office Makeover

Home offices are so important these days!  People want to create beautiful spaces to work from home.  We took this home office from dark and dated to light, bright and fabulous!  How, you ask?  The main way we did it was with….drumroll, please…paint!  Lots of it. We painted the built-in bookshelves, desks, ceiling beams and cabinets for a true transformation.

The first photo is the “before” of the space. Scroll down to see the fresh new office we created for our clients!

Can you believe what a difference a fresh coat of paint makes?  The ceiling alone is impressive. You can now appreciate the architectural details instead of focusing on the dated mustard and beige colors.  We also added some wallpaper for a modern touch.

The best home offices will have a little lounge area with a couch. You will see in the “before” photo below that they attempted this. But we made the space sing with a larger sofa, a beautiful area rug, coffee table and modern artwork.
