Husband's home office

June 20, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Hi there! Just moved into our first home! Hoping for some advice for our 18x20 2nd story loft which we are using as my husband's home office. He works from home with computers hence the multiple monitors. The large tv actually functions as an additional monitor so needs to be in eyeline of the desk. He would like to incorporate a leather loveseat, and a small pub table with chairs as additional pieces of furniture. Having trouble with layout, especially with not wanting to put the desk against a wall but figuring out what to do with all the cables. We are looking for other desk options and are trying to decide between an L shape or executive style.

I know that's a lot of questions, but I'd appreciate any feedback!!

A floor plan would be helpful with furniture layout ideas.

Is there an app or way you recommend showing a floor plan?

Check out Ikea's home visit on the web. I think you can probably call it up on YouTube. It shows a redo of a home office space and they used wire baskets containers to hold wires in place on a desk in the middle of the room.
Frequently people draw a basic floor plan and just just take a photo of it to post here.

The desk would look good at the windows corner or by the door. A thought is cords behind desk with a same color of wall board placed in front of cords.

How about something along these lines? Since this is in the home, Dad will probably have visitors (family members and otherwise) so a little social area might be welcome.
