The right location for your office will make a big difference.

Find the space for your home office

Where will your home office be?

This is an important consideration before you start spending money on your furnishings. Where you set up your office will determine if you need an Lshaped desk, small desk, hutch style desk, of if there room for a large desk with shelving.

Here are some options to help you decide where to locate your home office:

Option One:

Do you have an extra room in your home that you can designate solely for your home office?

If you do, this is the ideal area since you can have a place to do all your household recordkeeping and not be bothered with other distractions happening at home OR use the tax advantages of a home office to take a percentage of all your home utilities, your rent or mortgage, your insurance and more.

You'll also be able to keep everything you need in one room instead of using other parts of your home for files and/or products.

Option Two:

Do you have a guest room that you could convert into a home office?

How often do you use that room as a guest room anyway? If not too often, consider this option for our home office space.

Option Three:

Do you have room in your basement that could be used as a home office?

This could be a good choice if you have no other 'rooms' in your main home.

Designate a section of the basement and use it as a home office.

With a few key elements we'll list below, a basement could be the perfect space to allow you to get to work from home.

Option Four:

Do you have an area below a staircase that you could add a desk and make that your home office workspace?

This option is workable but, may require a little more DIY help or contractor assistance to get it functioning and you may or may not have the funds to make it happen.

Note: If you use another room in your home for your home office, the tax deductions will be greatly reduced unlike a separate room dedicated for your home business.

Option Five:

If all else fails, you may need to get started with a home office by using a desk area in your kitchen.

As above, this option won't allow you full tax deductions but, if you really have searched and there is no other space that would work, it could be helpful to at least get your home office started so you can get organized or start to earn money without having everything else in place.

Make it a happy color - what do you like? There's no right or wrong answer.
