How to Decorate a Home Office with Kitchen Cabinets Idea #1: Design your Dream Desk
Almost all lines of cabinetry have an “office line” which includes enough pieces in it at desk height. Many have file drawers and knee drawers and can be created in endless sizes and combinations. Top it with a granite or quartz remnant and you have a gorgeous desk that functions for YOU!

All companies also have vanity cabinets which are not as deep as a kitchen cabinet. Use these to create a credenza that will fit snugly against a wall. I have also used wall cabinets built on a 4” toe kick for this purpose for a really tight area. Just add a top and you have a beautiful and functional credenza.

You will also find many options in bookshelves with most cabinet companies. You can get countertop varieties or full height bookcases. You can also order finished stock in the color and finish of your other pieces and build your own if you are industrious or have a special configuration that you need for your space. Wall cabinets can also be ordered “void doors” and used as open shelving, This can also deliver considerable savings.

This is my favorite part! Many of the accessories offered by cabinet companies make the home office so functional. A roll out tray can hold a printer that can easily be stored away. Tall vanity cabinets with roll out trays make excellent supply cabinets, Tilt out trays, cutlery dividers and tiered storage drawers make organization a snap.
By far the best thing about using cabinets is the options you will have in door styles, colors and finishes. You can really express yourself in way not seen of “office furniture”. You will also find such an assortment of materials to use for tops like. Granite, wood tops, solid surface and don’t rule out laminates. (there are some beautiful options now)
