  5. I’m sorry but a bin on wheels!!? It’s more than likely to be lightweight and can be moved easily regardless why the need for wheels!!

  14. Some good ideas. Tables are not the same height as desks, though- so the table will be harmful to the joints of the body.

  15. What a pleasant room. I loved the pink & think I would have added that color to the wall behind the desk and to the back of the bookcases. As to the discussion about "Mom Cave", I think they were looking for a single-syllable word for woman. We need more good moms, but not every woman has children. "Gal Cave" might work.

  18. This room design will help with my standard one bdrm apartment. I have a red sofa to start and it's nice to see an informal design (many I see w red sofa are too dramatic w gold or all black). plus I need almost the same functionality.

  23. Okay, this might be "feminazi" of me to say, but I find the term "mom cave" as the female equivalent to "man cave" grating. It's not called a "dad cave"; it's a space for a guy to fill with the things he loves, where he is an individual free from the responsibilities beyond "the cave" and he can just be a guy, nothing else. The female equivalent should be the same and, as such, the name itself shouldn't reflect the woman in question in relation to the rest of the family, she should get to have her own space where she is an invidual, not a "mom"; being a mom is a responsibility and she's a mom in every other room in the house. In addition, the space is designed more as a family room anyway, so why even call it a "mom cave" to begin with, when it's not just for the mom?
