Many people are choosing to run their small businesses from their home offices, rather than spending their money on expensive offices and office rents. If you can do this from a logistics point of view, then you can save a lot of dead money in rent, over a year.
You can use the money you save from not paying rent, to grow and expand your business and then maybe move into a rental office space down the track. This only works well if you have a well-equipped home office in Perth, because if you are balancing your laptop on the kitchen bench, then you are setting yourself up for disaster.
If you are running business from a home office, then you really need a designated office and office storage space, in particular a room, which becomes your home office. You need an office with specific furniture for storage. You need a door that can be closed at the end of the day, so that you can walk away from your work, like ‘normal’ people do, relaxing and spending time with your family and friends at the end of the day.
On the other hand, if you have your laptop, paperwork, order forms and other business paraphernalia spread all over the kitchen bench or dining room table, then you have to pack it all away at the end of the day. This is not ideal for work, you need good storage solutions for all your papers and equipment. Clever office furniture for storage will save time and space.
This makes working from home much more stressful than it needs to be, in fact working from your private office should be a pleasure, not a pain.
So first of all you need a designated room for your office at home and then you need to decide what cabinetry you need. For example, do you need a large desk, so you can spread out all of your paperwork or research easily?
Maybe you simply need a small desk just for your computer and a separate area for displaying your ideas or designs? Do you need shelving, cupboards or other storage systems? What about extra chairs for visitors or even multiple workstations for casual employees?
