From Cluttered to Composed

Older homes pose a host of challenges, none more exciting than an odd-shaped room. Sometimes this room can be an old storage space that was finished or perhaps it gained its’ shape from enlarging an adjacent room during remodeling. Like that strange relative you don’t know where to seat at the party, it’s sometimes hard to find a way to incorporate this odd room into the rest of the home.  

A homeowner approached us with an L-shaped room recently; the room had such a tiny door opening – only 28 inches! It had become a repository for any old furniture that could fit and had been overrun with children’s toys making it difficult for adults to even enter the room.  

Like your wierd relatives, this room needs a makeover.

 

 

This odd, L-shaped room needed to function as a home office and a child’s playroom. This multi-functional space required measurements of all office equipment so that an autocad drawing could be created. Assessing the room I could tell, like that wierd relative, that it had redeeming qualities and all it needed was a quick makeover so it could fit in!  

The walls were painted a creamy yellow and a custom-built desk was commissioned to house the computer, shredder, files, and office supplies. (Thank you David Gunn and Gunn Construction!) The TV was then secured to the wall above a custom low-level cabinet which hide electrical components safely while open shelving stores fabric-lined baskets for toys and puzzles. Bright green bookcases also help to store children’s books and games. A pair of custom armless slipper chairs in a small-scale fit through the door, but are large enough so that an adult can sit in them without feeling like they are visiting their child’s elementary school classroom. The fabric is a classic – time-tested, 100% durable cotton in an adorable polka-dot pattern and accented with bright geometric pillows. (We added casters to the legs to allow for ease of mobility!)  

Toy organization is within reach of children. Let's hope they use it!

 

Gunn Construction created the custom desk pictured here to house all of the office items.
