Working from home is a new reality that many of us have to deal with, because of the social distancing measures put in place in many businesses.
While all the adjustments we have to make are no easy, it also comes with a lot of perks, like no driving -or traffic- to get to work, a more flexible schedule, and no lunch prep! Transforming a room of your house into your dream home office is also an interesting part of the remote work adventure! Here are some DIY pipe desk ideas that will spark your creativity.
1. U-shape Workstation With Shelves and Drawers
This office workstation was built in a basement, using the pipes and fittings system. All the aspects of the desk, shelves, and cupboards are custom: everything was planned to fit exactly the size of the room! They used galvanized pipes and chrome fittings and added HDPE tabletops to it!
2. Éric’s work desk
Éric needed a desk that would allow him to use his workspace to the fullest. He no longer wanted to see his power wires behind his desk. He chose tinktube’s black pipes and black fittings, adding pipes that allow him to wind his computer’s power wires, which are now no longer visible at all! Two pipes have been added to hang his backpack and headphones.
