Working from home can be a real blessing. It means less time spent in white-knuckle commutes and more time for family or hobbies. However, in order to maximize your work efficiency at home, having a functional home office is crucial. See the tips below and get started on creating an office space in your house.

1. Be Thrifty

Creating a home office doesn't have to break the bank. You can scour the Internet for used items, such as pre owned desks or chairs, and get pieces in good condition. Additionally, some companies may offer stipends to employees for the purchase of home office equipment, so check with your human resources department to find out if yours does.
2. Get Creative

Many employees with growing families find it difficult to carve out a space to work from home. If this is the case for you, you may need to get a little creative. Is there a spot in your basement where you can fit a desk? Do you have a sunporch or other enclosed area that you could add heat or air conditioning to for a comfortable office space? Even if you wind up with a small spot in your master bedroom, you can make it your own.
3. Channel Tranquility

No matter where you set up your office, you must be able to focus in that spot. Keep your desktop neat and organized, have pen and paper within reach and keep any other items essential to your work in or on your desk. You don't want to be scrambling for the essentials every time you get a phone call from your boss. 

The ability to work from home is a privilege, so create a space for yourself that will allow you to efficiently operate outside of your formal work setting. Remember, you can find a place to work in almost any home, so be creative if necessary.
