Great Places Around The Home To Set Up An Office

Great Places Around The Home To Set Up An Office
  • Opening Intro -

    A workspace is not anymore just a building located somewhere in the city and surrounded by other office buildings.

    Today, people can comfortably work from anywhere, including their homes, which, according to many, make them even more productive compared to working in conventional office spaces.


If you’ve decided to work from home and you’re a little bit in the dark about where you should set up your office, here are some suggestions for you to check out:

The Living Room

The living room is one of the ideal spots to set up an office. Whether the space is large or compact (small), you can still make good use of this specific area and create your own home office.

A small space by the window, where you can enjoy some fresh air and natural lighting, would be a great location for your home office.

Also, the area behind your sofa, and that tiny corner in your living room are great choices as well.

With the right pieces of furniture–a desk and a chair, a lamp (for corners), a bookshelf (if necessary), and extensions for your electrical appliances–you can turn any of the spaces mentioned into a fully functional office.

The Garden

Productivity is better achieved in a calm, serene, and conducive environment, and you can have all these when you set up an office in your garden.

If you’re in doubt of this idea, check out 5 Reasons A Garden Office Can Be Beneficial To Your Productivity to make yourself an instant believer.

An office inside your home is great, yes, but having one in your garden is just heavenly. However, such a setup can only be serviceable if you equip it with the right set of furniture and equipment.

The Bedroom

If you are not one of those who automatically want to sleep at the mere sight of their beds, then a bedroom office will suit you. The perks of a bedroom office are the extra comfort and privacy you get, plus you can always take a break and rest on your bed when necessary.

Setting up a bedroom office is quite easy, so long as you have a fitting desk, with a comfortable chair to match. You can also invest in a bookshelf or shelves, lamps (for illumination), sockets and extension boxes, as well as a  stable Internet source (most times, WiFi connections are weak in bedrooms) and you are good to go.

    some home office ideas to consider    

The Study Room

If you have an extra room, which currently functions both as an in-house library and a storage space, you can actually set up your home office right there.

What you need to do is to turn it into a more breathable space, which you can achieve by implementing home office interior design and proper lighting. You would also need some carpet for added warmth, and, of course, a stable Internet connection.

An added advantage of setting up an office in your study room is that it can pass as a full-on office space where you can receive clients and hold meetings.

The Garage

Your garage is an excellent spot for an office, most especially if it’s a huge one or if it’s mostly unused.

The advantage of a garage office, just like the study room, is that you can invite and receive clients as there is enough space to set up a full-on office.

An added advantage to converting your garage into an office is that it would turn out to be a good investment in case you’ll be putting up your house for sale in the future.

The Attic

If you own an attic that you rarely use, then consider turning it into an office because, for one, it offers enough privacy. Also, it becomes an even better office space if it has a good view of your home’s surroundings.

With the appropriate furniture pieces, such as a desk and chairs, a rug or a carpet, table lamp or bulbs, shelves or drawers, and some good paint on the walls to make it feel cozier, you can create a conducive work environment out of your attic.

Under The Staircase

Homes with staircases often have tiny spaces underneath them, which many use as storage space. Well, you can actually convert this little area into a home office if you are okay with such a small space and, of course, if you are not claustrophobic.

With simple touches of a fitting desk, light, and other necessary equipment and decorations, this can be a fully functional home office.

other valuable tips:


Setting up a home office doesn’t require much and is quite easy as there are many spaces to choose from, like the living room, garage, bedroom, garden, attic, and even that tiny area underneath the staircase.

All you need to do is to clean it up, add all necessary pieces of equipment and furniture, repaint the walls, have it installed with a stable Internet connection, and you can already have a conducive and serviceable home office that could benefit you, career-wise, in the long run.
