Home office has some advantages like, being able to take rest between tasks and cover this time by working at nights to complete the task at the end of the day, have coffee breaks, snacks, save traveling costs like fuel cost, vehicle cost, etc. Some of the disadvantages are also there with home offices like, space occupied by office related things like records, computers, products, etc, disturbances due to family members, friends, need to work on Sundays and holidays also.
A home office work place can be set up in a room such as a guest room with a compact wall unit with shelves, desk and drawers which take little space. We should decide if this office set up is whether inside the home or outside the home. We should check that telephones wires, fax, printer and other electrical wires that are set up neatly across the wall to avoid ugly patches. Now a days internet has become a essential part of business activities like trading and purchasing. It is useful for effectively managing a business process. So we should allocate a comfortable place to keep computer, scanner, printer and other items related to internet.
We should also consider the main point, like whether meeting the business people with in the home or out side the home. If it is within the home then maintain another room for meeting the people. And also keep the place for office related books, records and file, etc safely.
