The Den: Workspace Before & After

This first image shows the old "panic room". This was one of the quirkiest parts of our house. There was a wall-mounted bookcase that opened off of the wall to reveal a secret hidden space. I can see how this hidden space would be useful if it were somewhere else in the house but being that it is in the front of the house, all of the neighbors could see us opening it and knew about our "secret hidden space". Not so secret!
We decided to turn that space into a work center. The center had to accommodate a lap top computer, a digital camera, a wireless router, and cable modem, a wireless printer, and our everyday office supplies. I also wanted to be able to shut the space off from the rest of the room. The result was a customized work desk with Cambria quartz work top, custom drawers and cubbies for our office supplies and two recessed armoire doors that also lock for security.
The finished result is a great use of the awkward space and now we don't have to keep all of our office equipment out and visible; we can simply shut the doors and it disappears! Love it!
