#1) A Spare Bedroom
If you have a spare bedroom you can put your home office in the room. Typically you will want to use the smallest room in the home for your home office since you do not need a lot of furniture. You will typically only need a desk, chair, and lamp. You may choose to have additional furniture pieces, however, they are not usually essential for the operation of a home office. A spare bedroom is an ideal place for a home office because you can close the door and isolate yourself to have some peace and quiet.
If you don’t have a spare bedroom in your home you may want to use an area in your basement for a home office. A basement is another great place for a home office because it is normally very quiet. If you add some extra lighting to the basement it can make a great place to work. There are often few distractions in the basement so you may be able to get more work done than you would expect.
#3) Living Room
If you have limited space in your home you can use a section of the living room as space for your home office. Some people choose to place a desk behind their couch. Using an area that is not often visited, like behind the couch, can help ensure that your home office is not bothered. This can help it stay organized and in one place. If you have a window in your living room you may also want to put your home office there to get extra light.
If you have a large kitchen you may decide to put your home office in the kitchen. You can use a cabinet to hold your belongings and you can work at the counter or the table. There are often many different places within the kitchen that you can store your belongings and work at. This makes it an ideal place to work. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen you can just bring your laptop there and work. Try getting a comfortable chair to sit in when you are working so that you are more comfortable.
