With the increasing trend of working from home, many could be scrambling to find ways to set up a home office.

1. Use a spare room for your home office

When creating a home office space, you should try yo12ur best to separate living and working spaces for a work-life balance and to promote productivity at work. If you’re living in a spacious home, consider emptying your spare room to create that home office space where you’ll have enough space to input some new office furniture and storage for your documents and business inventory. This spare room will come in handy especially for start-ups as you’ll be able to save on the hefty office rental space.

We understand that not everyone has the luxury of space especially if you’re living with your family of kids and elderly at home. One other way to create some extra space is to reorganise your home. Declutter your living space by throwing or donating items that you no longer need. While this whole reorganising process might take up some time, use this opportunity to make it a family activity where everyone handles an aspect or room. When completed, you should be able to find some pockets of space to work comfortably.

If there are huge bulky items, seasonal items, sports equipment or personal collection which you would like to keep, you can also explore storing them in a self-storage facility like Extra Space Asia. By storing in a storage unit, it’s like an extension of your living space where you can still store and retrieve your items any time, any day as you’ll have 24-hour access to the storage space.
