Living in a 90 year old bungalow means we need to use the limited space we have to its fullest capacity. Thankfully, we have a finished basement which doubles our square footage. Unfortunately, the space just wasn’t getting used as much as it should because of a lack of functionality.
When we first moved in over 4 years ago, we used the back corner of the basement as our office area. When our family expanded and our priorities shifted, the space morphed into a play area but the desk remained. The space was cluttered and not ideal.
To increase the functionality of the space, we moved the desk somewhere else (future blog post alert!) and shifted around some toy storage. We also added in a seating area because we had some comfy armchairs kicking around.
While the new space is a vast improvement, it still isn’t perfect. Moving forward, I think the best plan of attack is to live with the updates as-is for the next few weeks and then determine what else needs to be done to the space to make it just right!
