If you are now working out of the home, then you may be very interested in having a modern home office.
First thing you should do is get rid of all that clutter and make your office look more modern and more functional than ever.
First, pick the best place for your office. If the whole family has to use it then you will want a big space. Maybe a guest room or part of your basement could work.
If you don't use your formal dining room then this might be a good option too. But if you don't need a lot of space, a corner of the room might be plenty.
Now, what all do you have to have to make your office efficient? You don't need all those fancy high-tech gadgets that stores are pushing today.
You just need things that will help your business meet its everyday needs. These could be:
*A unit that has a scanner, copier, fax and printer all together. This takes up a lot less space.
*A laptop or desktop computer.
*A cell phone or a land-line.
These are the must have's to any modern home office. Pick the out dated fax machine, the old printer and the old scanner.
The units that have them all together are wonderful, the save you a ton of space and they are very easy to use.
Try scanning all your documents and keeping them on your hard drive. This will help cut out clutter too.
Also, get rid of those old bulky monitors and get a nice LCD flat screen. This will also help you clear up some space.
Clutter is very distracting in any office. Don't have lots of pictures on the wall or on the desk. Keep the walls toned done, nothing too bright.
Try and keep your desk as organized and clean as you can. Keeping your office clean and organized will help cut down any distraction and will also help lower your stress levels.
A bit of planning is going to do you a lot of good when setting up your modern home office. This just might become your favorite room in the whole house.
