“Decide if your home office would be better off in another room. When you first started working from home, may have set up your home office in an obvious place: a spare bedroom, guest room or basement,” says Kanarek.
But there could be a better place. “If you rarely use your dining room or formal living room, consider setting up shop in one of those rooms,” she adds.
If you work from home full-time, you’re going to be spending as much time in your office as you do in the rest of the house. Don’t treat your working space as a second-class accommodation — give it the importance it deserves.
One important consideration is ensuring you can switch off when you’re not working. For this reason, it’s advisable you can shut the door on your office and “leave” work.
Kanarek also advises trying out spaces before deciding exactly where you’re going to be working.
“Watch out for a home office space that initially seems ideal but turns out to be too hot or too cold, too noisy or too quiet. Avoid moving your equipment, furniture and supplies several times by trying out your new home office space for one month.”
“That should give you enough time to decide if you’ve picked the right place to set up shop.”
