The home office is no longer a novelty. Whether used as a study, a computer room or as a space fully dedicated to a small business, entrepreneurs and executives alike are setting up work spaces inside the home. The following ideas will help you to get your new workspace up and running.
Decide How You Will Use Your Space
Whether you have a separate room available or will be building a workspace within your living area, the first step is to define how you will be using your space.
- Will you need space for a computer?
- What sort of shelving or filing system will you need?
- Do you need a large work area or will something smaller do?
Defining your space makes it easy to decide what furniture you will need. Those with a separate room may have an easier time when making decorating decisions but for those who do not, separating one’s work from living space as much as possible will make for a more productive work day.
Create a Blueprint
After choosing your work space, you may be tempted to dive right in and start rearranging things. Using a worksheet or design software, however, can save you a lot of time – and give your back a rest.
