How to Attract Fussy Telecommuters with the Perfect Home Office

In your opinion how important is a home office?

Currently 43% of the US work force work remotely to some degree. The last 10 years has seen a 115% increase in telecommuting. With recent changes in working from home more of us than ever need a dedicated office space.

If you’re running a short term rental property providing a home office environment may be a good boost to your bottom line too. Why not provide one and set your listing out from the crowded rental space?

Granted not everyone works while they’re traveling, but if you’re away from home for an extended period, chances are dedicated desk space is one of your priorities. Finding a short term rental, Airbnb or VRBO with high speed WIFI and a place to work area is an added bonus. No one really wants to work from the dining room table if they don’t have to!

If you’ve got a long term investment property, furnished rental or vacant rental, a one or two bedroom property plus additional home office space helps sweeten the deal. Garden sheds and cabins are another option to consider for expanding your home’s function.

Is a full blown office setup necessary? You don’t have to bust the budget because it’s easy to set up a functioning home office space with a desk, a comfortable work chair and good task lighting.

Whether you’re carving out some desk space in an alcove, a guest room or you actually have dedicated room for a home office, choosing furniture and accessories to stay in budget isn’t hard if you know where to look.

I’ve sourced some desk and chair options for you in different price points from some of my favorite retailers. Notice all of these desks and chairs are fairly design neutral and should work in a contemporary, transitional or modern space. An added bonus is they look good and don’t scream “office furniture”.

We all deserve a comfortable and well designed office space wherever we are. When you’re going to work it should feel like a welcoming space you don’t mind spending time in. Here’s how to get your home office fit for purpose:

    Thanks. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more
    useful than ever before.
