This Modern Home Office is from “The Timeless Home,” This Old House magazine, March 2002. It is a 10×10 space in the central area of the house, between the kitchen and the living room. It is designed to be a place to dump the afternoon mail or to organize your shopping list before going out to do errands. I also view it as a great family writing space. You have a great view of the yard via the bay windows to watch over your children or to gain a view of the outside to refresh your senses, the built-in cabinets would hold all your research materials and papers out of sight, and there is a nice spot on the floor where your computer tower could rest comfortably. While many of us use laptops these days, there is nothing wrong with a desktop setup. I use one myself!
While this office was designed a decade ago, it still has many great ideas to inspire your own writing space at home.
