Perhaps you have given up your job in the New Year to follow your dreams of starting up a freelance company. Whether you are a writer, an artist, a financial advisor or you are temporarily doing some administrative work until you can set yourself up properly. You will need a space in which to optimize your thinking process.
Remember that it is important to separate your living environment from your working environment – otherwise, you may end up feeling like work is taking over your life. Additionally, if you have children around you will not necessarily want them disturbing you while you are trying to concentrate.
Why not make that spare room you never use a home office space? You may need to undertake renovation and decoration in order to achieve the right look – after all this is a space where you will be spending a lot of time.
Add some personal touches such as vintage furniture. Many stores offer generic furniture but in the long run, this may not be the best option. Shop around and check the condition carefully. Also making sure for example that a desk has the capability for running wires between a computer and the wall. Having enough storage is another consideration so that you can file untidy paperwork.
Another way to make your working environment more interesting is to have a focal wall with some heavily patterned wallpaper. On those long days when you feel utterly fed up you can stare dreamily at that wall and remember your creative side. Ready-painted blinds can also spice things up with some color. You can commission a decorator to spray-paint them for you.
