Small home office design can be difficult to tackle. I’m sharing two room plans for a man’s home office and multi functional room with 3D renderings.

Do you have a room that you just don’t like spending time in, or perhaps even walking into? I do, and thankfully I don’t need to hang out in this room too often. It’s my husband’s home office, workout room and man cave and must serve all of those functions. When we first purchased our home years back this was our master bedroom. It has a tiny ensuite bathroom attached so it’s handy for an office. After putting a large addition on our home shortly after moving in, this became an office. It hasn’t been updated since then and suffers from neglect. Let’s look at some before photos…shocking, I know!
I’ve been taking the initiative to bring our entire home into this century little by little. One of the projects that I hope to do this year is to replace the damaged parquet flooring in the three bedrooms. Before you tell me that I should have the parquet flooring restored, it’s not a worthwhile project in this case. I’m not surprised to learn that hardwood flooring is no longer the most popular choice for some rooms, especially kitchens. Once these floors are replaced, let the small home office design project begin!
Let me reiterate that I don’t spend much time in here and it is clean, if nothing else. I do use the treadmill but that’s about it and he doesn’t mind working out of this space one bit (insert – shock face emoji). I had several asks with my Modsy designer and wanted to see if they could assist with one design including the treadmill and one without. The outdated built in storage will be removed, but he still needs storage in the room. The TV will stay but all of the furniture including the desk needs to be replaced.
You may recall that I worked with Modsy on a previous project in a redesign of our master bedroom. Although I’m no stranger in putting together mood boards, I would be totally stuck at 3D room design. That’s where Modsy comes in and I could not be more pleased with this service!
- Your Room –Take measurements of your room. Then, using your smartphone you take photos of the room from various angles and upload them to your profile. You DON’T need to clean or empty the room for the photos (which is a good thing;-)) since the designers will be creating the room fresh.
- Determining Your Style –Next you take a style quiz and tell the Modsy designers more about your project needs, existing furniture, and budget. The Modsy designer will be using your results in designing your space. Should you have a specific piece of furniture that you’d like to incorporate, the Modsy designer can do that as well. You will be able to share some of your favorite brands with the team.
- Design Reveal –Modsy Designers create 2 custom design plans (with different layouts and furniture) that fit your style and budget. Seeing everything to scale is so helpful!
- Fine Tuning –You can with the Modsy design team or the 3D Style Editor to fine tune your designs until they’re just right.
- Shop From Home – You have the option of shopping directly from your design plans directly through Modsy. They guarantee to find you the lowest price on all your items, plus you can earn discounts when you purchase through Modsy. It’s just like working with any professional interior designer who takes care of ordering logistics.
My Modsy designer came up with this design first and nailed it with everything that I asked for! In an ideal world we would like to find another space for the treadmill. We are limited in space in the other rooms so I don’t think that’s an option in this 60’s home.
Small Home Office Design
Modsy Design #1
This room serves as a den (man cave) as well and with the tv stand being white, I just may paint the existing one if I chose this design plan. I appreciate how it has that Florida coastal aesthetic that I love!
We aren’t quite sure if this room plan would enable enough storage, but it’s a great start.
I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of plants in the room, but love the idea.
In working with the Modsy design team I asked for an area rug to soften the room. A top priority though was easy care since we have dogs. In my shoppable studio that I’ll share below there is an incredible selection of indoor/outdoor rugs!!
While I love the white, grey and blue contemporary design this office IS my husband’s. I asked the Modsy designers for another version both in a masculine style and sans the treadmill. Here is what they came up with in design two.
Modsy Design #2
As you can see the layout is much more roomy without the treadmill. On the right hand side is a large storage cabinet with deep tones and modern glass doors.
My husband works with blueprints and needs a large desk space, so I’m not sure that this would suffice. No worries as I can go back to my Modsy designer who will shop for me virtually with more suggestions.
Another contemporary storage space in deep wood tones that are he prefers.
Both of these designs bring this home office up to date and have that clean look with storage to hide clutter.
Personally I think that this is the new wave and the future of interior design. It’s real design for real people who are simply looking for some assistance. Modsy is so affordable too! There are 3 different price points on their packages and I highly recommend giving Modsy a try! It’s like having your own personal interior designer at a fraction of the cost. Having an online designer saves a lot of headaches and back and forths. From submitting your chosen room, to receiving the designs, to shopping and delivery logistics, the Modsy team is there to assist.
Instead of having to dig and search for what you need, Modsy gives you a virtual selection of furniture and accents. They work within your budget and it’s fun to see how the pieces will work in your room!
When you shop through Modsy you’ll receive Modsy’s personalized shopping service along with discounts and the lowest online prices. They have several plans to choose from including BASIC, CLASSIC, PREMIUM and even MULTI ROOM. Wouldn’t it be fun designing your entire apartment or home with Modsy?!
