Bedroom workspaces can sound very basic: just add a desk and a chair and you’re all set up for work. And the truth is that things might be basic, but they can also be complex – choosing every layout, color, texture, pattern, shape and right down to the details makes a space pops up and offer the desired mood.
Designers can create many possibilities for the same space and somehow, when we see what results in other people’s homes, based on their own needs and preferences, we would love to know how a space perfect for ourselves would look like in a designer’s mind.
Visualised by Cartelle Design and showcasing a flexible design, this bedroom keeps visually connected to the living space through glass walls. If you want to see more on how a home office space can be constructed with glass walls, here are 7 Glass Home Offices to Inspire Your Own.
Placed under the window, the uncluttered desk only features a computer and a table lamp – everything else is out of sight.

Green is also seen in the ombre rug under the bed and we can also see glimpses of this color in the next room, in the shape of a modern stool. Beyond this glass wall, the more social living space makes anyone working from the desk feel more free.
Thanks to this glass wall, the space feels visually larger when you sit down to work. Looking out the window to the inside is something unusual for most people. Here is another example of a home office visually exploring another interior through glass: Ingenious Workspace Opening Windows to The Inside.
Behind the headboard, a deep green painted wainscot maintains an elegant appeal, while the floor seems extended upwards with wood wall covering. Behind glass walls, a shower makes it easy to start the day and somehow half of your time spent at home ends up spent in this particular room – sleeping, grooming and working.
Having a curtain hung up near the window and covering the rest of the space gives the illusion of a much bigger window concealed behind the curtain. Look closer at the apartment’s layout and you will see that nothing much hints to this fantastic idea of separating the private space from the social one without loosing visual connection between the two.
Here is another aproximately 70 sqm apartment with a different idea of placing the workspace, this time in the living room:
But space is not an excuse not to have a workspace at home. Here is what I mean:
