Do you need a home office in your Perth residence? Where would you put it?
These are some of the questions that people ask themselves when trying to decide if they would use a home office when they are retired.
As the children start to grow up and leave the family home and you are looking at retirement from your full time job, you may start to wonder if the house is now too big for you.
You may consider the idea of “down sizing”, a term that the real estate people like to use to make it sound attractive to you, for them to sell your property.
In actual fact you may not need to “down size” at all, it could just be that you need to re purpose the bedrooms.
There are so many ways to re purpose a bedroom that is no longer needed.
One guest room is all you need, after all, you are not a hotel.
You have the option of a designated room for sewing, hobbies, library, gym and even a rumpus room for when the grand children are visiting.
Depending on where the unused bedrooms are located in the house, the one closest to the front entrance will make an excellent home office.
So there you go, you may not think you need a office, however if you have bills to pay, personal documents and paperwork to keep secure as well as fax machine, printer, computer, landline etc etc, then yes you do need a home office.
It does not take much to imagine how organised you will be if all your paperwork, bills, documentation and communication systems are all together in the one room designated as the office.
With the right office furniture and storage systems you will always be able to find your household accounting paraphernalia quickly and easily.
