Streamlined Basement Office

A one bedroom basement gets a functional makeover.

Part of the reason Suzanne Dimma converted her basement rental suite was because she and husband Arriz needed a spacious home office. A solid stretch of durable Staron countertop from Ikea created a seamless work surface. Old-school filing cabinets framed by powder-coated steel supports serve as dividers and help conceal plugs and cords. The slender frames of the Japanese-designed white oak office chairs suit the Scandi-modern design of the space.
