Can a home office be a bedroom too?
Peter and Jo Kite’s combined home office and bedroom: The Luca range in alder and cream
Moving into a new build house without any storage or wardrobes in tow, Peter and Jo Kite wanted to transform one of their spare rooms into a combined home office and bedroom.
Acting as a blank canvas, their new home gave them the flexibility to do anything they wanted with it. So, they called on Sharps to tackle the job.
Peter tells us: “We didn’t have any storage at all and decided that we wanted to transform one of our spare rooms into a fitted home office that could also work as a bedroom. I wanted a study to work in but we put two desks in there, so that we could work at the same time”.
After hearing about Sharps, Peter and Jo decided to see what we could come up with: “We had a design visit from Sharps and also looked at an independent carpenter”. Once we’d shown them just what we could do with their spare room, they decided to go with us: “Our designer, Rachel, gave us some wonderful ideas for a really fair price. My wife really liked the styles and finishes Sharps offered”.
Rachel suggested putting bedside units either side of the sofa bed to accommodate the bedroom factor, which Peter and Jo loved. Box shelving above the sofa bed worked as decorative storage and the added wardrobes created more storage for their clothes: “We put the full shoe cascade in the wardrobe, which Jo really wanted”. And style-wise, they opted for the Luca range in alder and cream: “We really liked that we could combine two colours”.
Recalling their experience with Sharps, Peter says “Everyone we’ve come across at Sharps has been so helpful and lovely, and our fitter Simon was smashing. We’ve had a fantastic experience and even ended up fitting 3 out of 4 rooms in the house with Sharps”.
