What Houzz contributors are saying:

French Oak covers the floor upstairs. Built-in shelves span the far end of the office.Bookcase: IKEA
Transform sloped walls into storage space. Sloped walls can make for great storage, according to designer Ashley Roi Jenkins. If built-ins are outside your budget, or if you want to accompany them with less-expensive freestanding shelves, place shelves in the space beneath sloped walls that may otherwise go unused. This isn't the best spot for a desk, since you may hit your head, so low shelving units are an ideal addition. Make sure the space operates like an office. “In addition to design and decor, the new electrical and communication requirements for the modern-day office need special attention,” says Barnett. A home office won’t get you very far if it’s not equipped with electrical outlets, Internet and phone service, a fax and a printer.
