Family Room to Den Re-Design

One of my absolute favorite things to do is to take a room that no one ever spends time in, like a living room, and turn it into a hip new space that everyone wants to be in.  Here’s one such redesign transformation.

Luckily, the family had some quality office furniture to work with, but couldn’t quite figure out how to best use it.  Start with a custom space plan to scale, using what they had and a few new pieces.

Before:  Desks for three kids 

After:  Each kid gets a workstation with storage.

Before, mom was running a business from the kitchen table and using repurposed cabinets for storage.

After, mom has the best seat in the house.

Before, the bay window was a challenge and forgotten feature.

After, it’s a place to relax and enjoy.


Before, the akward corner was nothing to speak of.

After, it’s useful  and welcoming space for a workstation.

I think this is my favorite room this week.  What a smart family, to go beyond what the builder designed and use the space in a way that works best for them.

    Darla, Thank you so much for transforming this dysfunctional room into something beautiful, functional and a BLESSING to be in! Not only did you redesign but you put all my office papers, etc. in the files and you cleaned off my printer!

    My 9th grader really enjoys his new study space to call his own. My 7th grader now has a designated spot for all her sports stuff/ school stuff and my 2nd grader has no distractions and enjoys doing his homework there! I love my desk and having everything in one place. My husband enjoys helping the kids after work in the den, too.

    You went above and beyond what I dreamed you would do and we will definitely use your company for more room redesigns! You also made it a pleasant experience for all of us!

      We loved doing it for you. I’m thrilled that everyone in the family enjoys their own space in a room that you can all share.
