Well, my wonderful office included a huge corner desk system and pc, printer, fax, headset phone system and all my knick-knacks, coffee thermos, pictures and such. It was in the guest bedroom and I never had much of a problem with noise. I was doing a lot of customer service calls at that time.
We decided to make the room our daughter's room and bought her a bed, TV, Vsmile game system, toy box, vanity and bookcase. We decorated in a zoo theme. That was last year around the holidays. Now, I have an infant and haven't been doing much customer service, mainly data entry and legal coding.
My new office is in a corner of our room. I have a small desk and computer. It less organized now. My other office stuff is still on one side of my daughter's room but I only use it when I need to print stuff. She loves her room though so it is so worth it. When we move again, I will have a home office room again. I will post pics of the then and now lol.
