If you have the space then consider whether you can dedicate a whole room to an office. A workspace that fits into your bedroom or living area is great but a room that you can walk away and shut off from can be even better. It allows you to dedicate that space to work and work alone, to help get your mindset ready for work, and to become the environment you need to ensure a productive day's work. Importantly it is also a space you can walk away from and use to differentiate home life from work life. If you don’t have the space inside your house then how about in your garden? Gardens around the world have seen garden offices pop up in them as working from home has taken over. Having your office in the garden could be a great move to help keep your work and home life separate, not to mention a safe space where you can work uninterrupted from the goings-on of the house.
