Then make a list of the office essentials that you will need such as desk, computer, telephone, fax machine, internet connection, cozy chair and a cabinet or place to store the folders with the documents and other paper work. If you are having partners or clients that will visit you often, thane add few chairs and a table.

Plant the space to fir your storage. If it is small, add additional shelves on the walls.

You can end up working long hours even thru the night, so make sure that you have good lighting. You can place the home office by the window for some natural light during the day and use electricity only for the evening’s hours.

Keep in mind to use another telephone line, you don’t want your kids answering the potential clients or your boss.

Be creative. In a typical office that you share with you colleges everything is sterile, black and white, but in your own home office you can use the colors that you love, add some paintings and the coziest chair.

Even if your office is next to your bedroom or in your living room you need to make a strong boundaries between the professional and the private life, and always have more time to spend with the family.
