More About Adding a Home Office

 

The good news is that setting up a home office doesn’t have to be costly. If you have a spare bedroom or room for a desk in your kitchen or family room, you can create an office without remodeling or buying many furnishings.

 

 

Using Your Attic

One of your best options for a home office - and also for a room addition - is to make use of your attic. Its out of the way location makes it an ideal candidate for a home office, as you'll have the space and seclusion needed to get things done.

Using Your Basement

Another option you have is to make use of your basement. Basements are cooler than the rest of the home during the summer, and with proper heating, they can be comfortable during the colder months as well. By optimizing the basement environment, any office you create will be more inviting and comfortable to use.
