A recent New York Times study revealed that almost half of the population works from home at least some of the time. Not that we needed statistical evidence to pinpoint this cultural shift. The Gallup study also revealed that flexible scheduling and work-from-home opportunities played a major role in an employee’s decision to take or leave a job. Take note employers!
All this being said, creating a productive and stylish home office environment is more important than ever. Chip Wade, star of HGTV’s Elbow Room and a seasoned craftsman, has spent the majority of his career working remotely. He understands firsthand the importance of creating a home office environment that feels creative, attractive and functional—while respecting the needs of the overall space. After all, he has three small kiddos that need plenty of room to explore and play at home as well.
With the parallel shift of urban dwellers occupying less square footage, squeezing a home office into an already tight space may feel out-of-reach for many. Until now. Chip Wade serves up several whole-home, multipurpose furniture solutions that transform into the perfect home office from a new brand of space-saving furniture, Xtraroom.
Xtraroom encourages you to think beyond the confines of four walls and stop labeling a space. A space can serve as a place to gather with friends and watch the latest binge-worthy series, eat a delicious take-out meal, and triple as an office space by day. You can finally have it all with furniture that transforms with your lifestyle.
Xtraroom’s Argo Expandable Coffee Table starts as a rectangular coffee table and can be flipped open into a square. With the rise of one hand, it becomes a table for dining, working remotely or game night. The Scorpius Sofa Flip Table allows for living to office transition with a simple flip of the back of this sofa, which transforms it into a desk with two chairs in less than 60-seconds.
Need a place for guests to crash? The Orion Collection allows you to go from work space to guest bedroom in under a minute with the Orion Console Bed with Desk. There are also plenty of accessories, or Xtras, such as the Aquila Tablet Stand which serves as an instant table with an adjustable height and angle for your computer or iPad to roll up to your sofa or bed. Pretty cool, huh?
These Xtraroom solutions maximize space and allow you to get your work done with ease. No need to stress on how to create a stylish home office and have a living area, dining area or guest bedroom in a separate space– that you might not have.
