Choose the right location

The location of your home office is important for two reasons. Firstly, if you have visitors you want to make sure it is easily accessible and secondly, you want to ensure you get the right amount of natural light. In addition, you may want to ensure it is situated away from the house as to not be disturbed when the kids come home from school or the amazon delivery driver turns up again.

You should also consider that you will be working in your home office all year round.

In addition, consider a good amount of windows and bi-folding doors to allow natural air to circulate. You may also want to include a toilet and sink to ensure you don’t have to keep coming into the house.
