Organizing Your Home Office: Pretty Good Advice, and an Oddly-Numbered List

"5 Tips for Multi-use Office/Guest Rooms"
TLC Home

"Be honest. Is your home office more like a workspace/storage closet/guest room? You're not alone. It's a common challenge around the home: If you don't have enough rooms for a separate workspace and guest suite, then you might have some kind of hybrid space.

"You probably know all too well that it's challenging to get a room intended to serve two purposes to do both things well. But thanks to some simple design tips and transformational, space-sensitive furniture...."

Although it's short, you'll have to click through several pages to get the whole article. On the up side, you won't be doing much scrolling.

The points are in numeric order. Sort of. I'm not making this up:

1: Get Organized
2: Make a Plan
3: Create a Multifunctional Space
2: Provide Storage Space
1: Keep It Clean

Then there's a page titled, "Lots More Information." It's got a few links, and URLs for three retailers. No links: just the text URLs.

The five-point plan has some nice photos that sort of go along with what's being discussed. And, happily, you don't have to have a huge operating budget to do some of what they describe.

Overall? I'd say this (article? post?) might be worth skimming, if you're thinking about refitting a room in your house as a bedroom/office.
