This room was originally an informal sitting area/lounge/tv room. Because of the pandemic we needed a home office that would double up as a open plan/informal bedroom when family came to visit. The room to begin with was sparsely furnished and also the tiles were not the right colour, the house is predominantly yellowwood floors and cement/concrete. (there was simply too much brown). So we lifted all the tile which also went up the walls in places. Additionally we erected a wall that would block the outside onlookers from looking into our new office/bedroom. The front door is located at the entrance of the office and the street is right by our front door! We decided on dry wall so that we could DIY and also if the next owner of our home does not want a wall there it is very easy to remove. We rounded off the space with new light fixtures and beautiful decor.
