If you’ve just started up your own business, or you work from home and need your own space that is away from any distractions that are likely to be around, then it’s time you created yourself the office you need. There are plenty of different ways you can do this; it’s just finding the right place, or sorting out areas to provide you with enough room to do so.
Here are some ideas if you’re a little stuck.
The spare room
If you have a spare room in your home, it is most likely being used as a storage room to hide all the random bits and pieces you haven’t yet found a place for. Or you just use it as a guest room for when you have any visitors come to stay. But if you’re currently not using it, then why not turn this into your office. Remove anything that will get in the way, and find another place for it if you can. If you have a lot of items that you no longer use, just get rid of them. Throw them out, donate them to charity, or sell them if you can. Any spare money that you get can go towards furniture like a nice desk and a comfortable chair.
Building an extension
If you’re looking to add-on to your home that will provide yourself with enough space to create your own office, then orangery extensions for your home may be what you need. An orangery is essentially a space that is built onto the end of a house that looks out onto the garden. There are many different styles that you can choose depending on the look you want to give off from the outside. A lot of people use them as a day room, but they would make an excellent office because of all the natural light they bring in from the open structure and glass panels.
Creating a section
If you don’t have spare rooms in your home, and can’t afford to build one, then you may have to create a section instead. This may be in your bedroom, or your living room, and you can do this in many different ways. One simple trick is by buying a folding partition wall. You can get these in many styles that look really pretty with details and patterns, or just a plain wood effect if you prefer. Then all you have to do is assign yourself a corner and put them around you just so it creates a new space rather than sharing one. Pair that up with a workstation, and there’s your office.
And there you have it. So as you can see it’s not as difficult as you may have imagined. As long as you can visualise what you want, there’s no reason you can’t turn that into a reality. Working from home has its ups and downs, but as long as you can have a place to close yourself away from any disturbances – it’ll be a breeze.
