  • We had an open living space in our last home, and my husband used the dining area as an office after he lost his spare bedroom office to the twins. He had a large "L" shaped desk that we used to separate the office from the rest of the space. He put panelling on the back of the desk to hide all the cords and make it look like a wall from the back. He also installed a baby gate between the short end of the "L" and a wall the keep the babies locked out.

  • My fiance and I both wfh so we turned the family room (we have a living room and family room) into an office. we couldn't combine them because there was too much of a distraction from the tv so we put the kids desks in the 'office' as well so now the room is just a work area.

  • We didn't have to combine because our house was built to include a separate office.

  • His office is in the basement. In our new house it will be in the sunroom until we finish the remodel and then it will be in the smallest bedroom.
