Home office essentials
January 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm currently in the process of redoing one of the empty rooms in the house, and i want to turn it into a study/home office.
id like to know what are the essentials that i need for a perfect home office space. Desk,idea board etc.
i don't work from home but id like to have a office man cave to retreat to in the early evenings.

The sky is the limit. Some may not agree but I would start with the technology end of things. A list: Wifi, dataports, cable tv, stereo, tv, speakers, enough power (110v), fax, computer, laptop, laptop docking station, printer. I've probably missed some. Is there enough light in the room? Secondary: wine, cigars, fridge, wet bar etc. passive and or active air filtration. Narrow thoose things down then start on design and looks.

How big is this empty room ? Is having a comfortable man cave more important or having a proper office ? since they usually contradict with one another.

The room is about 3.5m x 3.5m, it has sufficient light, i will upload some pics later.
I love the pic uploaded by you Dytecture.
Seems to be exactly what i want to go for. simple, elegant.
R J Hoppe Inc i have the tech down already, need the bar and docking station, will definitely look into that. thanks for the advice guys.
