Turn your window area into a small office. Install a built-in desk and shelves under a large window for a work area with a view. Here, a wooden ledge mounted under the windowsill serves as a countertop, supported by a shelving unit that ties into its surroundings.
Sometimes you want a little flexibility in shelving, without creating an art installation of screw craters in your wall. So shout out to this customizable Flapps Shelving System from AMBIVALENZ for letting you move around your stuff on a whim. -EL
