The Home Office:
I've had a home based business since 1983 and
I just love it. It's not for everyone, but it has been perfect for me. You must be self-motivated and
able to "leave the office behind" for it to be healthy to have one, but for those of us who have
our own businesses, the benefits of working at home or from home are enormous.
Making a Place for Your Business
There are many places one can designate as the work
area, but to do it properly, keep in mind that it's not going to be very functional if you don't carefully
define the space as your "office". If you just whip out what you need and put on the dining room table
and shove it away when done, I can almost guarantee your business will not thrive. So the first rule is
to make sure you actually set up an area that is used strictly to conduct business, where things are
orderly and neat. A weathered table, pushed against the wall in the breakfast nook, turned this
home office into a charming extension of the country kitchen.
Home Office Decorating Tips
Choose a desk or table that coordinates with the
style of the room. While you can settle for your typical Staples or Office Depot type desk, why not
choose one that blends right in with the decor of the room?
Utilize space effectively, particularly if you're
not able to designate an entire room to your office. This work bench is neatly tucked under the
bunk bed above, using minimal space. Space is usually at a premium in a home, apartment or dorm
room, so plan ahead
for storage. Try to keep as much of your workspace free and clutter free. Utilize storage that has
doors to cut down on clutter. I don't know about you, but I just think better in a clean and neat
This small contemporary desk folds down from the wall and uses minimal space. This is a great
idea for small spaces, apartments and condos, even dorm rooms. Inexpensive and easy to install,
it's completely functional and can "disappear" when more space is needed.
