Many people are unaware that kitchen cabinet manufacturers also make great home office cabinets.  I've personally sold a number of pieces that fall into the home office cabinets category. Folks about to embark on a kitchen remodel will often want to create a home office at the same time.  Either they've recently started working from home or just have some room now that the kids are moved out.  A well planned set of home office cabinets will go a long way toward helping people become more productive at the house. Home office cabinets come in a variety of configurations.  Which ones you pick depend on what you think you'll be doing in the space.  It also depends on what kind of equipment you need to house in the home office cabinets.

Here is a pretty tricked out set of home office cabinets done with Bertch Legacy. 

Home Office Cabinets Floorplan

I've done up a sample plan with some renderings, as well as an itemized price list.  This set of cabinets would be suitable for getting work done, as well as sitting with folks (customers or salespeople). Starting in the lower corner, I've got an 18" vanity base cabinet, regular door and drawer, for stowing things that don't necessarily fit in a file cabinet.  Roll trays could be added to this cabinet if you wanted, but I left it with a regular adjustable shelf. 

I picked a vanity cabinet because it's the same height as Bertch's office cabinets (31 inches) and because Bertch doesn't make regular door and drawer type "office" cabinets.  Next to that is an 18" file cabinet with two drawers.  Then another vanity cabinet (24" wide this time) followed by another file cabinet and another 18" vanity base. Above these are 30" wide x 30" high wall cabinets.  I've left them alone, but there's nothing stopping you from getting one or all of them with glass doors. 

I also snuck (that's past tense for sneak if you're speaking Mainah ) in a couple of fluted fillers with rosettes on top and bottom. Below the two end wall cabinets are 30" wide by 21" high wall cabinets.  You can't see them in the floor plan, but you can in the rendering below.

I built a desk out of three cabinets.  Well, two and a half really.  There are two more file drawer cabinets sandwiching an undermount desk drawer.  To make it look like one big piece of furniture though (and a rather formidable one at that) there is a 3/4" wainscot panel running along the back of them.  The left side of the end cabinet is also paneled, and has a flush toe kick.  

Here is an itemized list showing what you might purchase this setup for at a place like Moulton Lumber.  Note that this is done in Bertch Legacy.  Most manufacturers offer similar cabinets, though there may not be so many features like flush toe kicks and paneled ends right out of the factory, for less money.
