In earlier post I allready wrote about the office and the storage and style problems I have there. In the link there are also pictures of the office as it is now. Biggest problem area is the work space. I really would need a bigger table for crafting and sewing.
I drew a floor plan of the room and placed all the furniture in. We would like to keep most of the furniture. Only the table is something that we want to replace. I know we don't have much use for the guest bed, but I like it better than to have air or regular mattresses on the floor for the guests. I also personally hate air mattresses even though those are handy to store. I would like to keep the armchair, eventhough it's always filled with stuff. We certainly need the bookshelves and the speakers.
This is the floor plan of the office now. All plans were drawn with SmartDraw trial version. All measures are in meters.
- black squares: speakers
- long yellow rectangles: shelves
- small yellow rectangle: shest of drawers, later this is assumed that it fits under a table
- big yellow rectangle: table, later coloured white
- gray circle, floor lamp
- office chairs, bed and armchair are obvious I think

All of those have something wrong with them. The option A and C has lot of work space, but the armchair or guest bed does not fit in. Options B and D look cramped, in both the shelf in the middle would not let any light to the back of the room.
But after a while I came up with this.
This is the best plan so far. It has few deficienies, the shelf next to the armchair can be quite difficult to reach. The bed lacks a night stand that it now has from the chest of drawers. The floor lamp does not fit very well, but that can be replaced with something that attaches to the wall.
It has few pros as well. Because the cable and electric plugs are mainly on the upper righ corner the wiring to the computer and related appliances should be easy to do and all things I want there fit and there is way more work space.
Any suggestions on the furniture placement or do you have any suggestions on alternative guest beds?
