Whether your workspace is a small area or entire room in your home there are so many endless options to make the most out of your space. Two of the most important furniture pieces in an office is the desk and storage pieces like a bookcase, sideboard, or hutch.

Your home office should be a space that is quiet and place that is able to repel distractions. Depending on how you work best whether that is being in a quiet area or in the middle of activity, your workspace should be somewhere you enjoy and can be productive, as you will likely spend many hours there. Meaning the items in this space will be used quite frequently, and should be quality made pieces.

To make your workspace practical you will need a desk. Not every desk is a like, and each style and type can serve a different purpose. At Unruh, we have a range of options that will fit with any design aesthetic with our stately executor Briar desk or our Olivia writing desk. Whether your home style is modern, transitional, or rustic; each furniture piece is made to order and created to fit your unique space perfectly. All of our desks are crafted out of solid hardwood, and built to last and a promised lifetime quality.

The layout of an office space can also help determine what type of desk would work best in the room. One classic office look you could try is to floating the desk in the center or the room and using some type of case good to balance the space. However, if you don’t have a specific room to designate to be your office another great layout that is highly function is placing the desk against the wall and is perfect for smaller spaces.

Office Storage

Whether you need a designated area of your home that you can use to pay monthly bills, get caught up on emails, and plan out your upcoming events on the family calendar or to run and grow a business, it is important for your home office to be usable and comfortable.

If your home office is limited on square footage, there are so many ways to make efficient as possible. By using a vertical furniture pieces, like our Carolina bookcase or Applegate Hutch, is a great way to gain more storage space for books and other office supplies while not giving up valuable space. Maybe your space has ample space, a great alternative to vertical storage is using a horizontal bookcase like the Coleman bookcase or using a wooden credenza like Hartford Sideboard that has four spacious drawers for your file folders.
