Times have changed. Enough said. Creating home offices spaces is vital as working from home has become a daily reality.
Every member of the family needs to have their own work space. Even the kids need a designated work area as they do remote school work at home half of each week.
Tom has been working from home off and on and I always have. Challenging to find four separate work spaces without distractions.
Maybe this situation sounds familiar. Are you looking for budget-friendly ways to create individual home offices for all?
If so, I’m thrilled for your chance to win a home office from Sauder! Boast big style with a budget price.
Winner gets a computer desk from the Cannery Bridge Collection and the luxurious occasional chair!

A room of one’s own with a Sauder Home Office
The struggle is real. I’ve been blogging since 2014 but it’s only been the last few years that it has become my, ahem….profession.
Yet even a month ago, I had no spot to call my own. No dedicated area to do my work.
I had been working from an adorable little desk from my mother-in-law. A super cute antique with small pink roses painted up the sides.
But then my 10-year-old daughter wanted the desk in her room for her work space. For Christmas, she got a pink velvet chair with wheels that looks stunning with the antique desk.
And just like that…..my office space was gone.
Sauder to the rescue. Sauder sent me the computer desk of my dreams from the Cannery Bridge Collection and it’s been bliss ever since.
No words could articulate how nice it is to have my own, kids-free/husband-free area to get my work done.
Individual style in creating home office spaces
Before I forget, I have to tell you the Cannery Bridge Computer desk does come in four fabulous finishes. Sauder sent me a desk with the Sindoori Mango Finish and no picture does this chic piece justice.
The sides feature a herringbone pattern that makes me swoon with delight. So beautiful!
Every time I glance over at my new computer desk and chair, I pinch myself. Is this really my work space? Clean and bright, this space-saving minimalist area allows my creative juices to flow.
Sauder boasts 69 very individual collections to choose from (if I can count correctly!) Trust me, you will find the exact piece of furniture to suit your style and individual taste.
Don’t miss the Cottage Road Collection or for kids, the Pinwheel Line.
Whether it’s your kitchen, office, bedroom, bathroom, kid or pet places that crave improvement, Sauder will have what you seek in a finish you like. Mind you, I counted a whopping 89 finishes to choose from. 89!!
Two of my favorite finishes are the Salt Oak and now the Sindoori Mango Finish. But the Estate Black finish is quite regal!
Sure to impress guests when they arrive. Light, dark and everything in between, the finish will leave you breathless.
Get organized with Sauder home office spaces!
The spacious top surface of this computer desk is mammoth with plenty of room for the computer, notepads, calendar, pencil holder, lamp, reference books, cup of cocoa and even a plant!
No longer am I cramped because there’s room for all!
Three drawers open and close on smooth metal runners. They slide open and shut flawlessly with ease. The middle drawer is shallow and is perfect for your keyboard.
But I leave my keyboard on the top surface and use this space for my extra notepads, stapler, checks, calculator and day planner.
The top right drawer is smaller than the bottom. The perfect place to stash extra office supplies you don’t want to get lost elsewhere.
The bottom drawer is for your letter-size hanging files. So all the important documents like company contracts, user manuals and other business documents.
Even extra storage with Sauder….
Even better, there’s a last secret. The left side features a gigantic space where I store all my tech related equipment like the camera and video recorder.
A single shelf divides the space which you can adjust to fit your personal storage needs.
Create two equal storage areas or one big and one small. It’s all up to you! I’m an advocate for hiding cords/ tech gear/gadgets. So unattractive.
This space is how the tech stuff gets hidden from plain view.
For the first time I have a work area to call my own! I’m so happy. A clean and bright work space functions just as well as it looks.
Refreshing to be this organized when creating home office spaces! Storage needs met on every level.
Creating budget-friendly home office spaces
Let’s face it. Funds are not unlimited. With four of us needing desks we can’t possibly afford to buy one for each member of the family.
Or can we?! Because with Sauder it’s possible. Sauder has desks ranging from $65 to desks in the hundreds of dollars depending on your budget.
Desks that suit your style and solve home office dilemmas without breaking the bank.
Sauder has desks in every finish and every size for creating home office spaces. Whether the space needing a desk is big or small, Sauder will have a desk that will suit your space.
On any product listing, scroll down the page and click on specifications under details. This is the spot to get the exact dimensions of any piece. So helpful when considering which pieces of furniture will fit in your place and space.
Not only does the detailed drawing provide the height, width and length but drawer dimensions as well if needed.
The features button to the right describes the product to a tee so if you are requiring a certain number of drawers or wonder about electrical access, this is the place to look.
All you have to do now is get out your measuring tape and order!
A chair with flair for your new home office!
Is it more important for your office chair be functional, comfortable or stylish? That was a trick question. Because with Sauder, you can have it all.
Sauder sells many traditional office chairs, all of which I have no doubt you will like. Traditional black office chairs with armrests and wheels.
While there’s nothing wrong with traditional office chairs, I wanted a pretty chair for my new home office. A swoon-worthy chair that makes me smile every time I glance at it across the room.
I wanted the Occasional Chair from the Harvey Park collection in the Emerald Green Finish. A sleek and unique chair with a velvet finish. Be still my heart.
Moreover, this chair is a comfortable as it is beautiful. The most posh and ultra-urban chair that I’ve ever stumbled across. And I’ve spent my fair share of time shopping around for chairs!
Better still, this chair of ample size tucks neatly away under the desk to save space.
Assembly with Sauder
Part of the reason Sauder is able to sell such marvelous pieces at an incredibly low cost is that many do require assembly.
I’ll tell you straight up. For budget-conscious consumers like you and I, it’s worth it. After all, why do we garden? Yes, it’s an enjoyable hobby but one that saves us money. And lots of it when we reap what we sow.
It’s the same with Sauder. Investing a little sweat equity over the course of a few hours gives you a show-stopping piece that you assembled with pride.
It’s thrilling when you look at the finished project and realized that you had a hand in putting it together! This is true of Tom.
The desk shipped amazingly fast, as in 3 days from when it was ordered. I couldn’t believe it. Within 10 minutes, Tom hauled the flat box into our living room and started to unwrap the cardboard and sort the pieces.
This shocked me. I’ve been married to Tom for roughly 15 years and I’m a diehard realist. Tom doesn’t typically get energized by a new project. Seeing Tom so motivated to tackle a project tells you how fun, yes I used the word fun Sauder assembly is.
Read the instruction manual thoroughly to install your new home office….
If you read their instruction manual carefully and follow the directions, Sauder pieces come together in a jiffy.
But with all projects, don’t take it on when you have a dentist appointment in a hour. Give yourself a half a day even though it only took us a few hours.
For example, the instruction manual for the Cannery Bridge Computer desk had 27 steps total, some taking longer than others.
Helpful illustrations with detailed pictures were included for every step of the way for a foolproof journey. Each part including the hardware was carefully labelled.
Yes, there are lots of parts. But when everything is carefully mapped out in great detail the assembly process becomes a breeze.
If you do come across any snags, you can visit Sauder.com to view video assembly tips or chat with a live rep. There’s also a 1-800 number to call. Easy peasy.
The only tools needed was a No. 2 Phillips screwdriver and a hammer. Tools you no doubt already own.
And truly, it’s the funniest assembly manual I’ve ever encountered! On page 25 of the manual, it even says “ZZZ….almost time to celebrate! With a nap.”
So Sauder has both style and a sense of humor, what more could you want?
Biggest assembly tip…
As with any piece requiring assembly, we highly recommend you take all the pieces of the box and make sure you have them all.
This way, you won’t be in the middle of a project and realize that you’re missing a integral part.
Plus, you’ll want to contact any company right away to alert them of an issue.
After you have assembled your beautiful new piece, don’t neglect to add a few plants. Green is good!
Serious chic style with Sauder!
My absolute favorite part about Sauder is how stylish their furniture pieces are. Furniture that looks much more expensive than their price tag reflects.
Assembling the furniture yourself instead of buying it already assembled is a big money saver.
Sauder boasts such beautiful and unexpected detail in a piece of this price. This desk retails for $289.99 but looks so much more expensive. It looks like a million bucks! Simply gorgeous.
Every detail has been carefully thought out. From the ease of the open and close drawers on those smooth runners, the modern metal hardware pulls to the elegant herringbone sides of the piece.
Your friends and family are going to think you won the lottery because this piece looks like you spent way more.
And that’s what I love most about Sauder.
Easy on the eyes, easy on the wallet. Serious style with Sauder with a price you can afford. What more do you want when creating home office spaces?
To win! Of course. So make sure you enter for several chances to win. I hope it’s you!!!!
