My Home Office Is Complete - Why That Is Important

Last Update: January 10, 2019

Yes, the title pretty much says it all. Of course I don't have the view in the image above, but that's okay. My wife and I have been diligently working to convert our spare room (that rarely gets used) into a home office.

The room was in dire need of a makeover

The spare room was previously painted a color called "Raisin", so you can probably imagine how dark the space was. This is because my wife used to work nights and she slept during the day. She needed a room that was dark so she could get some sleep.

Three coats of primer and a fresh new coat of light gray paint and we are good to go.

I purchased an adjustable height desk, and my back thanks me for that!

Why is this important for me?

Now I have a place to work. For the past 11 years we have been in this house, it's just been me having my laptop wherever there was space on the kitchen counter. Now I have a place to work. I do get to work from home one day per week with my full time job, so having an office is great.

Now I can focus more on my online business as well and I think this new office space is going to be good for me. Hopefully it will allow me to get more done with fewer distractions. This is all part of my goal to more efficiently manage my time in 2019.

So no more visitors, unless they want to crash on my daughters bunk bed (LOL).

I hope it's been a great week for every! It's almost Friday (for me anyway). Have a great weenkend everyone.

Steve

Hi, Steve. An adjustable height desk is a great idea. Thank you for sharing it.

Maybe this is an old fashioned feeling, but I feel this adds more legitimacy to your online business. Millennials sort of go the other way. They feel all they need is their cell phone to be in business.

It definitely should contribute to your productivity, help you stay on purpose when go to your office. There could be two modes. If you leave the door open you can be interrupted, but if the door is closed that's like putting up a do not disturb sign.

Good job ... let us know down the road if feel more productive with your new office.

I agree with you Dennis, I feel that my own workspace is definitely a move in the right direction. I have a place to focus and not get distracted. Thanks for stopping by!

I think you will enjoy your new office. I certainly enjoy mine. I have rearranged the furniture and equipment a couple of times over the years. I have a picture window as well. I think my cat enjoys the view more than I do.
