In this day and age, more and more people are working from their homes, both as self employed small business people and as employees.
There are a lot of advantages in working at home, for starters there is no lost time in commuting to your office, you are available to deal with any problems at most times and you are working in a relaxed atmosphere, where you may wear comfortable attire.
Being available does not mean being on duty 24/7, far from it.
Personally, I make it a practice to go for a regular walk every day to refresh my mind, give myself a break from the computer, as well as get some much needed exercise.
I observe weekends, as such, by spending it with my family and only tending to the basics like collecting email or replying to the most urgent queries.
There are other considerations, such as local council zoning ordinances, that may apply to the area in which you live.
It will be in your best interest to check with your local council to find out where you stand before investing a lot of time and money in setting up your niche home office.
So long as you are comfortable and there is enough room for your essential equipment then you should be able to function smoothly.
Don’t forget to consider the need for extra power outlets and telephone lines, an average office is equipped with a computer, monitor, scanner, printer, speakers and video.
Then you will need task lighting as well as room lighting and maybe air conditioning or heating.
