Whether your work-from-home arrangement is permanent or temporary, having a designated workspace is essential to your productivity. Your dining table or bedroom might work for a little while. But eventually the distractions in these spaces will get to you, and you’ll need a particular area where you can really focus on your tasks. To give you an idea where to set up your workstation, here are four of the best locations for a home office.
This is the least expensive way to set up a workspace in your home, so it’s ideal for those who are only temporarily telecommuting and do not want to spend a lot on a home office remodel. A spare corner is also a great option for those who have limited space in their homes. However, the main disadvantage of having your home workspace in this area is the noise and lack of privacy.
If you want to have a separate entrance for your home office, or the workspace you need requires a few alterations, you can have your garage converted into a home office. This would be perfect if you need a space that’s large enough to fit your equipment and/or inventory. This type of home office remodel will cost you a significant amount, though, since you will also have to set up electricity, water, sewer, heat and communications in this space.
Backyard Home Office
Outbuildings or backyard cottages have become a popular home office option these days. Although expensive, they offer the most privacy because they are built separately from the home.
Your attic can also provide a good location for your home office. However, the space will need alterations to ensure easy access. It may not be ideal if clients would need to visit you from time to time, but your attic would be perfect if your work involves tasks that are done alone or if your meetings are typically held online or in other places.
