One of the big arguments I have at home with the roommate (AKA boyfriend) is about office space. We both work on "internet stuff" (he's a programmer and I do this website content blog-y stuff), so we have computers, lots of 'em. In our dining/living room area alone we have two work stations and a computer hooked up to the TV. In the bedroom, another desk where a couple of laptops sit (collecting dust, mostly).
I opt for style over comfort for my home work station; I'm not sitting there for hours so I just want a little nook to do a some surfing here and there. My boyfriend, however, would like to recreate his work environment at home with a gigantic desk and some sort of huge leather monstrosity of a desk chair. Ugh. Earlier this year when we purchased a new desk for him I blogged about some I like -- see what desk we ended up with.
Right now I'm in love with closet offices. So, this week's Top 5 is dedicated to my continuous quest to strike home office balance with my roommate and inspire you with great space saving offices tucked into closets!
