What Houzz contributors are saying:
Try a sawhorse table. For sheer flexibility, it’s hard to beat a simple sawhorse table. Whether it lives in a guest bedroom or on your landing, or moves about, get the perfect one by picking up the top and trestles to suit your changing needs and circumstances.Choose lightweight pieces so that moving the table isn’t a chore. A fold-up top is a bonus, allowing you to stow your pop-up home office in a closet when necessary. You may even press your sawhorse tables into service when you have a large gang to feed.See sawhorse tables at work in the house
2. Changing bed covers the hard way. If you find yourself in a wrestling match every time you go to change your duvet cover, you may be doing it wrong. Rather than simply shoving your duvet into the cover and wrestling with a mountainous landscape, try flipping the duvet cover inside out first. Lay the duvet on top of the inside-out cover and, using safety pins, pin the duvet and duvet cover together at the top two corners. Next, push the duvet through the open end of the cover, feeding it through until it’s right-side out. Give it a good shake to flatten it out, then reach inside and remove the safety pins. Simple.
Have an outward-facing desk. Facing your desk toward a wall or window is a smart move. By having your back to the bed, you’ll be less distracted by thoughts of sweet slumber when you’re trying to work. Trestle tables look beautiful and are good for wide spaces but don’t offer the same storage as most other desks. If the majority of your work and documents are online, then you probably won’t need much storage, though.
Rethink a bedroom. In this bedroom, a generous desk stretches along the width of the window. It’s constructed from an inexpensive combination of trestle legs and a simple wooden desktop. Ergonomically speaking, a well-designed office chair is the best accompaniment to a desk, especially for a full-time workspace. Here, though, a classic Eames armchair helps the work area blend in with the bedroom.
