    Hi Mark,
    The key to making a small space work is the depths of the furniture pieces. Most of the time you need to do something custom so that it doesn't look clunky. The desk in this photo is only 18" deep. Wall mounting it and the storage makes the room feel bigger and that the furniture is "floating" off the floor. Take a look at some of these options from Apartment Therapy:

    Secondly, consider doing a twin size daybed instead of an actual bed. It will read more like a sofa in the room and not make the space feel like an awkward office/guest room. I've attached a photo that shows how I built a bookshelf over the daybed in my home. When guests come over we pull it out a bit to use, but when they are not then it functions as a cozy reading nook. Hope that is helpful.
    All the best,

    If you are looking to separate the room as it will be used for multiple purposes, I would suggest our bookcases that can be used as storage and as a room divider. They come in different sizes and widths so they can be small enough to take up as little room as possible, yet big enough to be functional. The bookshelves come with or without casters depending on how much mobility you want and with or without backs. You can check out our products at Heartwork (www.heartwork.com). Please let us know if you have any questions!

    This is a lacquer finish done by an Italian manufacture. It is sanded several times in between coat to achieve the shine. You can get something similar, but not quite as shiny, by using a high gloss paint and sanding with a fine grit sandpaper in between each coat. I don't like polyurethane because it changes the color even when the can says it dries clear. I have done the above technique with wood stain with great results. Good luck!

    This millwork is amazing, it is from Modulo Cucine. There are several finishes to choose from and colors to choose. Be sure to have your contractor add blocking in the wall to support the desk and cabinets!
