Leo Paquin has a great suggestion for any home office remodel: build it like a kitchen. Most kitchen cabinet manufacturers make “office cabinets”—just like kitchen cabinets, but built to desk height. Some include office options like file drawers or bookshelves. Add countertops, and you’ve got a large built-in desk with plenty of storage. Leo ordered 15 linear feet of cabinets and countertops. Any home center or kitchen showroom can special-order desk-height cabinetry.
“We started out shopping for office furniture. Cabinetry gave us a better office for less money.” — Leo Paquin
