Options To Consider For A Home Office For Your Home-Based Business

Real Estate Technology with Husky Marketing

Running your own business has changed forms thanks to technology. People used to require office spaces in commercial areas to allow employees to work. An entrepreneur working from home might have a fully remote staff as this can be seamless in today’s world. Remote workers understand the importance of working in an office space. This can allow you to eliminate distractions which can be nearly impossible to do with children or a significant other. Setting boundaries while you are working can be important as the more you get done in a certain time, the more time can be spent with family and friends. The following are options you have to consider for a home office when running a home-based business. 

Create A Working Space On Your Property 

A number of entrepreneurs have run what are now large corporations from a garage with the best example being Jeff Bezos with Amazon. A garage can be a good option as it can be spacious enough along with easily heated or cooled. Running a Wi-Fi connection out to the garage should not present too many challenges. Others might just use their phone’s Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities to serve their internet needs. Metal buildings for RV or trucks can be a great option if you decide to clear your garage out for office space. 

Consider Premium Headphones If Noise Is An Issue 

Noise can be a huge issue in a home for an entrepreneur when working from home. The summer is not a time to tell children to keep it down as it is their break. A great alternative to this can be an array of headphones that allow you to work in peace. You do not even have to listen to music to have the sounds of the home deadened to an amazingly low volume. Look at the various options available as these can differ drastically in price while the quality is pretty consistent. 

Adding A Room Onto Your Home

Adding a room to your home is popular among those that know they will be working from home for years to come. You are going to have to get permits which can be nothing short of a nightmare without a seasoned contractor to help with this process. An option that might not be as prevalent is working in the basement. You will have an internet connection although you might need to invest in having your basement insulated. Areas with extreme cold can make it difficult to work in the basement unless it is finished. The bonus aspect of a basement office that is finished is it can be viewed in the future by buyers as an additional bathroom. 


A home-based business could require a large working space or an average home office. You need to create a list of what you want out of office space to see how you can work towards this goal. You might not check every feature off of your list but ensure you can stay productive in this space. As someone that is self-employed, you determine your income on how productive you are during your allocated working hours.

I’m a Site Agent at a New Construction Development. For the last 5+ years potential buyers have told us that they would rather have a Small 7x9 Pocket Office than a Formal Living Room
