When you work at home, it is so helpful to have a dedicated space in which to spread out and concentrate on the day's tasks. In fact, it can help you get into the right state of mind, and keep all your work-related clutter from spreading all over the house if you have an office or an office area within the home. With that in mind check out the advice on creating the perfect home workspace below. Find a space to dedicate to work, in your home.

Where to put your workspace 
Sometimes the hardest thing about creating an office or workspace in your home can be deciding where to locate it. The reason for this is because each different person will have different priorities. For example, a working mum may want to be close to the playroom so she can keep an eye and ear out for what the little ones are up to. Alternatively, those working in a house that is deserted in the day may have more choice as to where to place their workspace and can decide to locate it in term of where would be most conducive to work. With some folks choosing a summer house in the garden during the warmer months for this, or even an attic space that allows them a clear delineation between work and their home life.

Colours and light 
Once you have found the space in which to locate your office area, it's time to consider the basic decorations. The two issues that come to mind here are the colours that you will use and making the best use of light. First of all, don't think that picking colours is an arbitrary thing, because they can have a massive effect on your mood, motivation, and focus. In fact, you can choose bright and warm colours like red and orange which are better for motivation and enthusiasm to decorate your area. Of course, if you don't want to go the whole hog and have everything painted in such bright colours, you can always use bright white walls which are great for light and can be calming, and then add in colourful accents like these red roller blinds, or even orange ornaments on the walls. Then you will still get the benefit of such intense colours without it feeling too much in your home.

Desk and storage 
Once you have decided on the decoration, it's time to consider the furniture in your workspace. Most folks go for a desk and chair, especially if they spend a lot of time at their computer because of it much better for their posture and backs.  It's also vital that you pick out some storage that not only fit in the space you have but also is aesthetically pleasing as well. Then you will be able to file away all the accoutrements of your business once the day is over and stop it from spreading all over your house. This is something that can be bad for your work-life balance, as well as making it difficult to keep your home neat, tidy and organised in the way you would like.
