Home Office Makeover Ideas

I’ve tried to be reserved with the sneak peaks, but I have been dying to share our new office with y’all. It looks SO good, you guys! I hope you can find some inspiration here for your own home office/work-from-home setups.

While I obviously wanted our new office to be “pretty”, functionality and storage took top priority. Everyone in our family uses this space, so we had to make sure it worked for both Mike and me in running our businesses, but also for the boys and their homeschooling and homework. When planning this project, we immediately took to Pinterest. Um, hello INSPO! Here’s a peek at what we envisioned for our office.

Preassembled Eklipse cabinet collection

Our first stop was our local Lowe’s store to check out their Eklipse cabinets collection. Once we saw them in store, we knew they would be perfect for the built-in desk we imagined. We knew we wanted to go with the white cabinetry right away to achieve the soft neutral palette and really brighten up our office. Eklipse cabinets are available in eight different finishes to suit any space and project. Lowe’s also has a design and planning tool for Eklipse cabinets, which is very convenient and that makes the planning process much easier.

The day our cabinets were delivered, I did a happy dance because they come PREASSEMBLED! Yup, you heard that right, no hard-to-follow instructions here. Just slide them out of their boxes and they’re ready to install. I was so excited that I unboxed the first 4 units and slid them right into their new home. Here is a peek at what they look like right out of the box.

Easy installation

We are so impressed by how easy the Eklipse cabinets were to install. We stacked three 30-inch 2-door Perle Eklipse Base Cabinets on each end of the wall (6 units total) to create a built-in desk. We knew we would want some drawer storage. For that, we used two 15-inch 4-drawer Perle Base Cabinets.

Drawers are full extension. The entire Eklipse collection comes with top-quality hardware that is all soft close, which we all know is a must with kids. Eklipse cabinets are manufactured in Canada and all include adjustable legs, making them easy to fit any project. We used the finishing base instead of legs, so the desk wouldn’t be too high. The quality of Lowe’s cabinets is impeccable and we’re so thrilled to have them in our home.

Before I show you how far we’ve come, I’ll pause and remind you where we started.

With some DIY magic, manpower from hubs and my father-in-law, and a whole lot of love (and shopping) by yours truly, here it is today!

* Cue drum roll, please! *  

Confortable home office

We DIY’d these floating shelves to complete the space with one 2-in x 12-in x 12-ft board from Lowe’s lumber department. I’ll share a full tutorial on them soon, but we’re super happy with how they turned out.

I'm sure you’re thinking that it's rare to be so excited about an office. After all, it’s a place to work. But this project has been an absolute dream! We finally have an office we can all be comfortable in, enjoy being in, and stay organized in, and I could not be more stoked! You can discover the entire Eklipse collection at Lowe’s and start dreaming up your own home makeover project. Every time we walk by it, I still cannot believe this is our office. We LOVE it so much!
