Studies have shown that employees who work at home are more productive and report better work satisfaction. Again, we have those free birds who love to work on solo or freelance projects. When you work for yourself, you set the schedule to work during your most productive hours while balancing the different aspects of life.
The only problem is the fear that you might slack away or get distracted because of the obvious homely environment. What if you create an inspiring designated area in your home for work aka home office?
Here’s how you can set up a home office without investing too much time and money.
Find the Perfect Spot
Deciding where to set up your home office is the first step and here are some factors you should consider. Find an area that will not interfere with the other dwellers of the home. A corner area with a window or an area in the living room can be considered. Natural daylight can help a lot in eliminating stress and creating a positive aura.
Evaluate Your Office Needs
Congratulations if you have decided the spot, it’s time to plan about your office. Make a list of the basic items to include in your home office. List the most obvious things such as a chair and desk, a storage cabinet, charging points and lighting options.

Introduce Some Greenery
If space permits, introduce few indoor plants to your office space. Plants can decrease stress level and make you productive. I am not claiming this, it’s proven by researchers. See for yourself how a plant can brighten up your office space.
