As the concept of telecommuting is catching up, more and more people prefer to work from home. Freelancers also work from home most of the time. However, for working from home you need a perfect atmosphere. You cannot concentrate if the kids are running around you. If you are in the hall working on anything and somebody turns on the TV, you have to move out frustrated.
It is always better to select a room entirely for the work and design it according to your preferences. The room colors should reflect brilliance. There should be ample lighting. The most important things are the table and the chair on which you will be sitting down to work.
Once you select the room and its color, get on to hunt for a table that can hold all the essentials you need at hand. The table can also carry folder bag and other items of regular use so that you need not stand up to reach out for something you need. The chair should be comfortable enough as you will be spending most of your day on it. Finally, make sure the room is properly ventilated.
