Home Office Design

August 23, 2019

Did you know nearly 5% of Americans – 8 million people – work from home? At MDI, we love designing home offices because they give us a chance to combine functionality, organization, efficiency, comfort, and aesthetics. In other words, we really get to flex our muscles!  Here are some of our favorite home offices:

home office


This sleek shared home office
gives each of the homeowners their own space, plus a large desk for working
together. Custom built-in cabinets keep office essentials tucked away, and
luxurious, understated desk chairs give the room a peaceful, classic vibe.


In a home nestled
on the Kiawah River, this office
was designed to take advantage of the verdant views. We split the door on this
room, so the homeowner’s furry friends have a quiet place to chill when their
family is out.

River View

This office
proves your working space doesn’t have to be big to be functional. We carved a
nook out of the kitchen for a small office that features a handsome built-in
desk and supply cabinet. The best part of this niche is that the view might
even make you look forward to going to work.


Designed for a home
on Kiawah Island, this masculine office
takes advantage of the beautiful scenery outside. We lined the walls with
custom floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and cabinets for abundant storage and added
comfy seating for visitors.  

Sullivan’s Island

These homeowners
requested a shared home office.
His semi-circular wood desk has strong lines and a warm tone that contrasts the
crisp white, black, and blue-grey tones in the room. Her desk is elegant and
sleek with more than enough room to spread out. A gas fireplace takes the chill
off winter workdays.

Rhetts Bluff

This lovely Kiawah
home got an extra-functional shared home office and reading
room. The desk is contemporary with sharp lines and a bit
of shine. We added a plush leather club chair for catching up on the news and
lined the opposite wall with floor-to-celling with bookshelves.


Offices don’t have
to be all work and no play. In this lovely Kiawah home, her office
is designed to be a getaway for watching TV, reading, and catching up on
correspondence. This graceful study features a desk, a wall of built-ins, a sitting
area, fireplace, and plenty of style.


This is a cozy shared office space
with a built-in desk big enough for two. The light-filled corner of the
upstairs landing is the perfect place to work, do homework, or hang out
