Install lights

During the day, this home office is soaked with natural light. But when big projects require burning midnight oil, two swing-arm wall lamps ($69.95 each) provide plenty of light.

Join multiple desks to create one surface

Combining two stainless-steel tabletops ($99 each) created an L-shape workspace that fits perfectly in the space available. Get uninterrupted legroom and a built-in look by attaching the desks to the wall. This installation method will only require two table legs ($30 each), rather than four.
