How to Create a Great Home Office

By: Jim Blair

More adults than ever work at home. And, many are simultaneously enrolled in an online degree program.
With all the working and studying people do in their homes, their lives can be made much easier if they have the kind of home office that allows them to be most productive.
So, it's surprising that more people have not created a good in-home workspace for themselves. If you are in that large group, here are a few tips.
1. If your home is large enough, select a quiet room as your office. A room with a door will serve you better than an open or doorless room.
2. The two most important home office components are a comfortable chair and good lighting.
3. Remember that inexpensive desks can be purchased at several of the office supply chains, at flea markets, and from the classifieds. You should find lots of affordable options.
4. Invest in a good surge protector to protect your computer and printer and maximize the outlets available to you.
5. Are you enrolled in an online college or do you produce frequent documents for your work? If so, be sure you use a good external hard drive so your documents and data will not be lost.
As someone who spends more than 50 hours a week in a home office, I know how important a good work space is. If you follow the advice above, you will have a comfortable space in which you can maximize your output.
