How would one build a home office without spending a fortune?
There are many ways to create a great space for working at home without spending a fortune. You may end up feeling a great sense of accomplishment after turning some wasted space into an efficient home office.
Here are some ideas:
- Define your space for work keeping work separate from family.
- Create a plan and take measurements
- Determine what you can do yourself and what you might need help with. You may be able to paint and decorate the room yourself but could require technical help setting up the computer.
- Inventory what you already have available and make a list of your office supplies that you need.
- Shop around for bargains at yard sales and flea markets
- You may be able to take used furniture as a temporary option
- Get ideas on line or from decorating shows
You don't have to spend thousands to have an effective home office. Your office can also be a "work-in-progress" while you are becoming established at your home-based business.
