Home Office Makeover
Ft. Lowe’s Eklipse Cabinets
I’ve tried to be reserved about sneak peaks but I have been dying to share our new home office with y’all! It is SO good you guys! I hope you can find some inspo here for your own home office/work-from-home makeovers!
While I obviously wanted our new office to be “pretty”, functionality and storage took top priority! Everyone in our family uses this space so we had to make sure it worked for both Mike and I to run our businesses but also for the boys home schooling + homework. When planning this project we immediately took to Pinterest .. umm hello INSPO! Here’s a peak at what we envisioned for our office.
Our first stop was our local Lowe’s store to check out their Eklipse Cabinet Collection. Once we saw them in store we knew they would be perfect for the built in desk we envisioned. We knew we wanted to go with the white cabinetry right away to achieve the soft neutral palette and really brighten our the office. Eklipse cabinets are available in eight different finishes to suit any space and project.
The day our cabinets got delivered I was happy dancing because they come PRE ASSEMBLED! Yup, you heard that right, no hard to follow instructions, slide them out of the boxes and they’re ready to install! I was so excited I unboxed the first 4 units and slid them into their new home! Here is a peak at what they look like right out of the box.
We’re so impressed with how easy the Eklipse Cabinets were to install. We stacked 3 – 30inch 2 door Perle Eklipse Base Cabinets on each end of the wall (6 units total) to create a built in desk. We knew we would want some drawer storage. For that we use 2 – 15inch 4 Drawer Perle Base Cabinets.
Drawers are full extension. The entire Eklipse collection comes with top quality hardware and are all soft close which we all know is a must with kids. Eklipse Cabinets are manufactured in Canada and all include adjustable legs making them easy to fit any project. We used the finishing base instead of legs so the height of the desk wouldn’t be too high. The quality of Lowe’s cabinets is impeccable and we’re so thrilled to have them in our home.
Before I show you how far we’ve come, I’ll pause and remind you where we started..
With some diy magic, man power from hubs and my father in law and a whole lot of love (and shopping) by yours truly.. here it is today! * Cue drum roll please *
We DIY’d these floating shelves to complete the space with one 2x12x12 from Lowe’s lumber department! I’ll share a full tutorial on them soon but super happy with how they turned out.
I’m sure you’re thinking it’s rare to be excited about an office – its a place to work after all – but this project has been an absolute dream! We finally have an office we can all be comfortable in , enjoy being in, stay organized in and I could not be more stoked!
Thank you so much to everyone who followed along on this process, voted on my polls and helped make decisions along the way. You can discover the entire Eklipse Collection at Lowe’s and start dreaming up your own home makeover project! Still cannot believe this is our office every time we walk by it! We LOVE it so much!
