A. It really does make more and more sense to combine an office with a bedroom. This is especially true if you don’t have guests all that often. In order to keep the office from totally taking over, and keeping your guests from staying at a hotel, you have to be sure you keep these spaces completely separate.
Space planning is one of the most effective ways to enjoy a room in the manner that you have set. See Space Planning Tips for a Successful Residential Design and get started moving things around.
Maintaining as much separation as possible between these two spaces is key. I think it helps to pretend you have an imaginary line running down the middle of the room and nothing can cross over. This allows for both areas to function properly, and wont let one get in the way of another. Which of these two areas will you potentially be using more? Separate it accordingly. Planning out the room properly will alleviate stress later on. Trust me.
If you want to keep your office easy to use, and not allow it to take over the entire room, then please KEEP IT ORGANIZED. This needs to be taken care of from the very beginning. There needs to be a place for everything. Creative organization is the secret to a nicely designed room, and will be important in making this room work effectively.
Also, try to make use of the walls for storage, and use the least amount of floor space as possible. Your office will be the hardest area to keep looking nice. Make Your Office Decor Look Pretty because it will be stared at by all who stay in the room.
