The Sill, West Elm
Well, well, well, here we are. It’s 2022, and we’re still thinking about our WFH spaces. Bet in March 2020 you didn’t see that coming, did ya? But alas, having our roommates and pets as our coworkers is the reality now for many of us (and tbh, is that really such a bad thing?), as workplaces across the country remain closed or in a hybrid model for the foreseeable future. But if there’s one thing we’ve learned in the past two years, it’s how to turn our homes into makeshift offices. And Maybe? Sorta? Thrive?
If you’re like many other WFH superstars and have set up your workspace in what was formerly just your bedroom, or maybe you’re in a studio and your bedroom is your office and kitchen and living room, this story was written just for you, baby. Especially if you’re looking to zhuzh it up a lil bit. Below, I’ve compiled a list of ways to turn your bedroom office into an actually pretty cool place to work with just a few simple (and honestly, pretty darn cheap) additions. Think chalkboard wallpaper, the perfect desk lamp, organizing products that’ll actually keep your life in order, and more.
You may need to set your Slack to “away” while you’re shopping, because this is serious business. Scroll through and soon you’ll be designing the workspace of your dreams with these bedroom office ideas—no commute necessary.

When you’re both sleeping and working in your bedroom, things can start to get a little…dank. Bring in some scented candles, or a diffuser or two, to keep things smelling fresh.

Create space for your BFF (best furry friend)

Carve out a space in your office where a) your pet can live their best life and b) you can keep an eye on them. I love the idea of finding a cozy bed that fits perfectly in an open nook in your desk or bookshelf, making them their own little lair.
