Setting up your home office

Working from home can make good business sense, but it's important to take the time to ensure that your workspace meets your needs. Whether you're setting up a home-based business or are already working from home, there are steps you can take to make the most of your space.

To get started, ask yourself the following questions:

Create your space

You may be tempted to start moving furniture and equipment into your new office right away. However, it might be easier to plan out your space efficiently when it is still empty.

Furniture and equipment

The type of work you do will dictate what you need in your space. You may want a desk and computer, a workspace for creating, or a table and chairs for small meetings. Being comfortable is important, but you don't have to spend a fortune to equip your office. Consider buying used furniture, or looking for sales on equipment.

Organize your supplies

You may want to position the files and supplies that you use on a daily basis within reach.

Taking the time to determine your needs and plan the best home office for your business can help you remain organized and productive.
