Cole House Design Transforms a Messy Milton Home Office

By
Home Stager with Cole House Design

Cole House Design, a home staging and interior redesign firm serving the Halton and Peel Regions of Ontario, was called last month by a Milton homeowner who needed some redesign help on the main floor of her home.  However, the job quickly turned to other parts of the house, as the homeowner realized how much nicer the rooms were beginning to look, with our quick and simple transformations. 

Below, is the before photo of a loft style computer nook that the homeowner had at the top of her stairs on the second floor.  I'm sure many of you have seen these...completely open concept and a convenient location to drop things as one treks up and down the stairs.  That's unfortunately what this had become for my client (a stay-at-home mom)...this was her drop zone.

Cole House Design cleared the clutter, most of which was kids' outgrown clothing and miscellaneous office supplies.  We kept the birch desk as it was fairly new, and it fit the space well.  We purchased a new black leather office chair for optimal comfort.  Instead of placing the desk up against the window...we moved it out from the wall so that when you came upon it via the staircase, you did not have to see the back of the chair first.  We also opted for a large free standing multi-functional floor lamp that is plugged into the wall behind the chair, versus a desk lamp where the cord could be tripped on by my client's children as they accessed the desk.

With just a few simple fixes, we were able to tranform this small computer nook into something that was easily accessible for the entire family, and where Mom can sit down and answer emails, pay bills, etc.  In the future when my client goes back to work, this will also make an ideal home office space.

If you would like help transforming your home, and you live in the Halton or Peel Regions of Ontario...call Cole House Design at 416-878-0338. 

Thanks for reading!

Nicole,  The transformation looks great.  Good call in bringing the desk away from the wall.

Nicole,

Quite the difference!  It appeared it was used as a dumping ground before.
