The home office or the study as many people tend to call it, really does need to reinvent itself every now and again. What used to be the spare room with a few pieces of old hand-me-down furniture, bookcases, storage cupboards and a couple of big pictures on the walls is now more of a multi-functional room in our modern homes.
The study usually has a computer, fax machine, desk and filing cabinets that contain all of the family’s household accounts and years of receipts and expenditures. The home office in Perth has become a place where the kids can do their homework, mum or dad can work on the family budget, pay bills and shop online.
The problem is that with everyone coming and going into the study, there is nowhere for you to work uninterrupted on your business. The study is more of an activity room.
Maybe now you should relook at your study area and see if you can put together a list of what you need in a custom designed area to suit your specific work and storage needs. When you are running your own business, you really do need a dedicated room, so you can keep your family life and your business life separate.
It is so important to be able to shut the door on your office at the end of the day and spend time with your family, enjoying your time with them and not thinking about business.
Having a dedicated room is even more important when you need to talk to customers or suppliers on the phone or when you have customers coming to the house. You don’t want the kids in and out of the office all day, making a noise and racing around as kids tend to do when they are on the computer or just playing.
A professional office with ample storage solutions is important to your business, so talking to the experts here at Flexi Offices is a sound business decision. We can design and install an office that suits your budget and gives you everything you need to run your business from home. You will be pleasantly surprised at how much easier your day becomes when you have your own office space.
We can even design computer nooks in other parts of your home for the kids to do their homework. Maybe a dedicated space in the rumpus room or the kid’s rooms would be a clever option for your family? So if you are ready to reclaim your home office, call us at Flexi Offices on 08 9301 4200 or complete our online enquiry form.
