3 TIPS FOR MAKING YOUR WORKSPACE WORK FOR YOU

1: Never judge a book by its cover. (Ha, library jokes).

In this case, we mean- always think outside the box when it comes to selecting furniture for your space. You would never know it- but the “desk” in this library is actually a dining table! We might add that it also comes in light grey. Surfing through other sections of the website might inspire you to reimagine the possibilities of furniture. Servers can make great storage units. Bedroom dressers can double as living room credenzas. It’s your house, you make the rules!

2: Create a reading nook

It is a library after all! Add a comfy accent chair into the mix for reading and relaxing-and don’t forget a side table.. because, coffee.

3: STORAGE!

Always consider storage when you’re making plans for a new space. Vertical storage is a great option because it leaves your room feeling much less cluttered (and your mind!) Storage that combines open and closed portions is great for showing off your favourite keepsakes, family photos and books-all while hiding away the tax papers and staplers!
