What They Wanted

With two young kids, the McMullens wanted to create a sleek home office that could also double as a quiet space for their children to do schoolwork. The couple worked closely with California Closets Philadelphia design consultant Mark Cassidy to address their needs and objectives for the space.

How we did it

In addition to a productive work area, the McMullens also hoped to incorporate ways to tastefully showcase their collections of cookbooks, rocks, and beer steins. Mark took this all into account and presented the McMullens with three different designs that each included lighting, doors, drawers, and open shelving for displaying their collectibles. Once the final design was selected, Mark addressed the room’s main challenge—the wiring management. As an IT professional, Mr. McMullen knew exactly how he wanted to run the internet, power, and other lines for his office. Mark worked the wiring in seamlessly and added special features, such as pop-up power stations.
