This is a step by step process of how I redesigned my study in my house. The attached images are the final design.
Step 1: Current State of Study
This is what my study looks like right now before I redesign it. It is full of mess and not well organized.
Step 2: Dimensions
After measuring the dimensions of the room, I made a brief sketch of the layout on a note card.
Step 3: Early Designs of Structure
After I had the dimensions of my study, I used those to make a quick sketch of the layout in SketchUp
Step 4: Actual 3D Model of Room
Then I raised the walls of the sketch and played around with a few items of furniture inside the room. I eventually decided on an orange couch and entertainment seat facing a television with a pull down projector as an option too. I even kept the same desk and computer in the corner because this is still supposed to be the same room it was before. Besides, that's a nice desk. The television is hooked up to a cable box and Xbox 360, both located in the closet. Finally, I painted the walls a cool blue to contrast the bright orange of the couch. This is a major improvement of the current room because it allows for plenty of space to work and be productive, while still leaving room for entertainment and leisure.
