I came upon an old Real Simple blog post of an amazing office makeover that I just had to share.  A disastrous guest room/office was turned into the home office of your dreams.

Before:

What a difference! You may have noticed that the desk has been repositioned to the other side of the room which is where it should be. Every part of this office looks well put together, organized and stylish. It definitely has my stamp of approval! Come to think of it, I have that very same desk that I got from Ikea. I didn’t have to spend a fortune to get a fabulous office desk and neither do you.

Now I want to show you inside the white cabinet:

Do you notice how both her printer and shredder are in there? As I’ve mentioned on other blog posts and interviews, these electronics are better kept out of sight. Usually along with a shredder and printer you have a pile of cords too. Getting separate cabinets or moving those items off of your desk can and will make a huge difference in your workspace. Until they make stylish printers or unless you have a shredder like this one, it’s better that no one sees it.

Perfect example of style and function:

Though you may not need ottomans in your office, this is still a great example of style and function. They needed extra storage and seating so this was a great solution.
