Creating a home office space doesn’t have to be a daunting task. First, consider how you are going to use the space. Does it require certain gadgets? Will you need special lighting? I like to make a list of all the needs of my space first.
Next, find the best location in your home for this. This could be a closet, a corner or empty portion of a wall, or maybe you have a whole room dedicated towards this new space. Considering the size of the location and what the goals are for the space you need to create a budget for completing the room. While looking for a location I like to check out my electrical outlets. This could become very important if hiring an electrician is out of the question. If lighting is an issue in this space don’t be afraid to get creative. Hanging lamps, floor lamps, battery powered bulbs are always options so just because there isn’t a fixture currently in the spot you want it doesn’t mean that there can’t.
Office supplies & organization is where it starts to get fun. How will you keep your things organized & what will those types of things be? Think through all surfaces, vertical and horizontal. Normally our first thought is to place things on the desk but let's remember we have unused space up on the walls. Maybe hanging file organizers instead of a drawer or desktop file organizer. Jar organizers attached to a wall could also be fun. This is where I like to think out of the box and really get creative with using items differently than what they were intended for.
