Creating a Homework Station
The cabinetry extends the length of the combined rooms, culminating in a computer station (the new homework central).
Created with timeless Shaker-style cabinetry, neatly trimmed with crown molding, molding along the toekick, and molding covering the joints between stacked cabinets, the wall is reminiscent of a library design.
Cabinets on either side of the desk are stacked to create pillars that complete the vertical pattern started at the fireplace sidewalls. The deeper cabinets also break up the long span and define the office space.
The desk is supported by drawer units that accept file-hanger inserts (available at office supply stores). Above the desk, on either side of the computer monitor, small furniture drawers store pencils, stapler and other supplies close at hand but out of sight.
