Home Office with Blue Cabinets and Custom Wood Tops

by Elizabeth Round | Village Home Stores

One of the interesting results of home interiors trends the past few years amid a pandemic is the refocus on the importance of a dedicated functional home office. For some, work-from-home is the new way of life in the work force. The idea of a dedicated library/study/den in a home now needs to also check the box of a functional home office setup for the workday. The new home office should allow a retreat for reading, gaming, and other hobbies in addition to the proper setup for career needs and even e-learning for other members of the house.

This design in Geneseo, Illinois allows for one or many users to set up and work in it. A focal wall is filled top to bottom with handsome, custom cabinets and a U-shaped custom wood desktop turns the corner to fill the space. The user(s) can set up in many locations along the wood desktop and still have the option for soft seating in the club chair by the window.

The office cabinetry is installed in our best-selling “Charcoal Blue” paint in the Bristol door from our Koch Cabinetry line. This moody blue painted finish is often used for kitchen islands, bath vanities, fireplace surrounds, and home bars. Here we have installed it for the entire home office cabinetry design. A well-designed home office can display and store all your things while allowing you to stay organized, inspired, and focused.

The custom desktops in the office are from our Café Countertops line. Solid wood work tops and furniture custom made for your needs. This line offers custom wood tops as well as custom heavy-duty floating shelves in a variety of woods and finishes. The desktop surfaces in this home are an African Teak “Iroko” that will darken over time once installed.

We can order custom wood countertop surfaces for your project four styles of construction including planks and end grain grid styles. There are a dozen standard woods to select from for your project. You have the option of a hand-rubbed luxury oil finish and a “Super Bio-Coat” that is antibacterial and maintenance free! The hand-rubbed luxury oil finish is made from a natural earth-friendly blend of plant oils and a carnauba wax. The finish makes it food-prep safe and more resistant to moisture and stains. There is a once-a-year treatment/maintenance to keep your tops looking and performing great.

There is also a wide range of edge options for your custom wood top. There are nine standard edges, four premium edges, and two super-premium edges you can select from. The super-premium options give the illusion of an extra thick wood top. These look beautiful as custom tabletops or for a kitchen island counter surface. Ask a kitchen and bath designer at Village Home Stores to see our sample center and browse the finish and edge options in person.
