I don't know how you've lasted in the same room for all this time already Sal! Two offices sounds ideal.

Unfortunately I can't get my wall bed idea to work for various reasons, so the spare bed has to go (Sorry future guests!) and I'm getting a desk built in to where it used to go and getting this or this instead. Should be much quicker to get done, so I'll be all sorted in time for the next lockdown :woteva:
I got one of these beds for my spare room/office, so I can slide the desk over and sleep two in here if I need to. Would you be able to squeeze in something like this?

Edited again to add a better link and pic!

My chair will have to go in the front room at the dining table, so I'm not really happy about the aesthetics :(

I can't have a desk and chair in my bedroom because the rowing machine's in there :lol:

I might use a snazzy throw to disguise it. (The chair, not the rowing machine).
You have lived life thus far, tell me how you have done it?

Ta Nine - I think I prefer the solid daybed/stackable bed things I linked to, it will be nice to have something in the corner to slump on during calls! And there will be enough room to convert it back to a more-or-less guest bedroom when needs be even with a desk in there as long as I put the chair somewhere else.

ETA Ah, thanks for the edit - yes, they're along those lines only they both have the same base so hopefully pretty solid ( :fc: )

Ah I looked at those and the JL one is very nice looking, but I decided on getting proper mattresses (plus mine was a LOT cheaper and I'm on a bit of a budget).

We’re thinking of getting a wall bed. Is it a really bad idea?

It's not that it's a bad idea Tex, it's that the mechanism I wanted didn't work with the desk set up that I was after nor in my existing built-in cupboards. I would have if I could have!

I should be on a budget too Nince, and I've considered a similar one in Ikea that's more reasonable but I decided at the end of the day that I'd rather splurge and get a piece of furniture that I really like and can come with me if I move, and even be repurposed in a living room in the future if needs be. (Also, no holidays this year...)

I love the JL one too Marth, it's just the lead time that's putting me off.

I like those, Derek. I really want the Another Country Daybed One for my study, but it costs more than a second-hand car and we don’t have proper room anyway.

These standing desks were just advertised to me on FB :legit: Thought they looked quite good though.

We finally ordered desks, 6 months after starting to WFH! We had been working in the dining room but the building work starts next week and that is right outside the dining room so we couldn't stay there. Plus every day J was having to set up monitors/risers/docking stations etc every day, then put it all away at the end of the day which was just tedious.

So we cleared out space in the 2 spare rooms and ordered desks which we can leave set up every day. This is mine although I haven't shown the whole room as we're storing some stuff in there until the extension is done.
