Working At Home

Between using your home computer, taking care of household bills and correspondence, and the necessity for a quiet area where kids can do their homework, it's not hard to justify the need for some dedicated office space in your home. The goal in establishing a home office is to create a space where you can be productive, that also looks and feels like a part of your home.

Perhaps you're lucky enough to have a spare room you can convert to a home office. To tie your office into the rest of your home, forgo the stark coldness of commercial spaces and opt instead for soothing, warm patterns and paint that coordinates with other rooms. Instead of buying a desk from a business supplies store, consider a roll-top desk, which will lend charm to the room while cleverly hiding your supplies and equipment.

For many people, space is at a premium and home offices must be incorporated into another room. Avoid the bedroom at all costs — waking up to a stack of paperwork is no way to start the day!

Thanks to condominium lifestyle hacks, sneaking a work space into a small or multifunctional room has never been easier. There are tabletops that fold down from the wall, armoires made especially to house computer equipment, small-scale desks that look right at home in kitchens, and screens that serve to hide workstations and separate work space from living space.

To keep your supplies and papers off your desk and out of sight, especially if your office space is part of another room, store your supplies and papers in stackable wicker or wire baskets, or in matching fabric or plastic boxes.
