Modern Home Office Design Transforms Unused Alcove

In one of our recent projects, Buzz Home Office transformed an unused alcove into a modern and stylish, bespoke home office space.

Since the start of lockdown, the customer, Anne Stevenson, had been working from the kitchen table which, as many of us will know too well, has not been the most comfortable or productive working from home set-up.

The Challenge

The customer was looking for a work from home office to be designed for a spare room which would provide her with the required workspace, without taking up the entire room.

Added Value

Our designers recommended making use of a built-in wardrobe that was rarely used, and so they designed a bespoke home office to fit within this existing space, while still allowing full use of the spare room.

The solution included a fully fitted home office space with lighting, electrics, a solid desktop and generous storage space.

The customer opted for a modern colour scheme of Matt Indigo Blue for the doors and Grey Bardolino Oak for the carcase and back board. The 20mm quartz worktop was supplied in the contemporary Calacutta Neptune design which provides a great contrast to the doors.


A slight setback occurred when the designers discovered that the wall was loadbearing – this meant that the original plan to open-up the space had to be amended. However, our expert designers were able to re-design the office to a slightly reduced width, while still providing the necessary storage and workspace.

The fitted home office furniture was designed to fit into the 1895 x 2200 x 710mm space (width x height x depth) and the team even managed to work around an existing pipe chase in the left corner.

Two bespoke size wall cabinets with open box storage underneath were installed as well as a set of 500mm wide drawers and a 300mm wide full height cabinet underneath the desk.

The customer was delighted with the result, commenting, “Working from home has been challenging and having to work from the kitchen table just made things even harder. Having a new dedicated workspace will allow me to separate work from home life effortlessly.”

She continued, “I had a fantastic experience with the Buzz Home Office team from start to finish – they were able to realise my vision of what I was looking for and have provided me with a quality home office, completely bespoke and which matches my style.”
