While setting up a home office, the biggest question “where to put your office?” Well, it doesn’t need to be large or expansive, but it must separate from other areas. If you have an unused room in your house, i.e. guest room, maid’s room or just another area which you only use a few times a year, you can easily convert that space into workspace.
It took more than a year for me to completely settle down in my home office, and I tested a lot of things in that time. I know that time is money, so here I am going to share some useful tips that I learned from my own experience. I am sure these will save your time and will help you in setting up your home office faster.

5- Again, make sure you get your workspace apart from living space, because this is the only way to promote healthy balance and allow yourself to relax at home when you are not at work.
6- It’s not just about separate space, but dedicated time as well; establish set hours for your work at home, so you should not be working all the time but still being more productive!
