It's easy to take a bunch of tech gear, cram it in a space and call your home office complete. It's a much more delicate affair to put your gear in a space while keeping the space pleasing to look at.
Lifehacker reader Aaron Leestma has an enviable home office. A spacious desk, comfortable seating for guests, great view, even a cleverly built stand for his office HDTV are all great selling points for the well lit and appointed office.
This is my home office. Rack in the corner, 39x72 desk with a media centre behind. I work mostly at the office but it's nice to have a dedicated spot at home too. I also organize and edit my photos here. I still have to add photos to the frames...poor form, I know.
The brown strip on the wall was a built-in for an old CRT TV. I cut a piece of MDF to size, wrapped it in dark burlap and secured it to wall. This created a flat, accented wall to hang a TV on. One section of a room divider accents it further down the middle.
