    Question Do you have a dedicated room for a home office?

    Most affiliates work out of a home office, at least according to a poll I started five years ago:

    Do you own or rent your office?

    For this weeks poll I ask whether or not you have a dedicated room for a home office.

    Besides voting in the poll, be sure to elaborate on your home work environment. If you have a dedicated home office, tell us about your office, what you like about it, and if there are things you would like to change. And if you don't have a dedicated home office, tell us about the room where you work and what other activities the room is used for. And whether you like or dislike the shared use.

    I've always been a little nomadic working at home, anywhere from the kitchen table to in front of the TV works for me.

    However, since Covid my wife has also worked at home which made things a little more interesting shall we say, so last year we converted our loft to create another bedroom and an office which we share during the week now. The office is only really big enough for one person at a time so we agree who needs it on any given day (for video calls etc) and go from there.

    It's made me much more organised than previously having some dedicated office space, the only challenge was that the wifi signal was poor being at the far side of the house to the router, however that's now resolved with a booster/signal repeater which does the job.

    Absolutely!

    I think having a separate place where you can focus on work is very important for your productivity. When I was in college I always tried to find a productive corner and get my work done. The same principle applies here, I work from home and having a separation between your leisure time and work time helps a lot!
    Another option could be those co-working spaces where you can just rent a table and work from there. I had never tried it but I believe it could work.

    I have worked from a home office for 10 years, converting one room in my apartment into an office. First living with my parents and then on my own.

    Two years ago I decided to rent an office space and I am really happy with the choice. I am more productive in a real office and it's nice to separate work from personal things. I obviously still get some work done from home or when traveling, but the office is the main point of business.

    We also had some employees come to the office, but now that some of them have changed cities, I will soon remain the only one there. Nevertheless, don't think I will be switching back to home office any time soon, although I expect to do so later on.

    Our office is a little apartment in city centre with everything close by, but nicely tucked away so that we are not bothered by the downtown noise.

    A dedicated room, though it doesn't make anyone believe I'm actually working in there!

    We have 2 dedicated offices in our house. One for my husband and one for me - even though we both work for the same Company...its just safer that way otherwise we might kill each other as we often have rather loud disagreements
    I am very lucky though because my office window looks straight out onto the sea so its a very serene and calm working environment ( when we are not having a disagreement ) Here is a pic of my view

    Absolutely have a dedicated office in my home and fully equipped. Don't have a nice beach or mountain view but very quiet considering living downtown Montreal.

    Total opposite here - my wife and I work together from the same home office with our desks facing each other... and the dog lounges on a sofa farting away.

    I think it is important to have a space or room you define as your office. This way I can leave my 'office' in the evening, shut the door and put work aside until the next day.

    I also work with my wife but with 2 floors in between us, I'm not sure I could sit facing my wife all day. It's nice to have things to catch up on after work when we haven't seen each other for most of the day.

    Poor Mrs Mattbar… although she does talk a lot.

    Yep also have a dedicated home office with the usual office things incl a whiteboard and ten tonne of brightly coloured stationary haha.

    Also just moved in a comfy wing back arm chair in the corner for when I break out a book or for evening working to put feet up.

    My other half also works from home but he uses an office downstairs. We set boundaries to respect each others space when working.

    Oh my, it’s funny how some questions lead to some self-reflection. So this made me think about wtf do I do all day.

    And the answer is I love it, so that kind of excuses this varied selection of offices...


    Very early morning. No one else around. Office is sofa in living room. Dog one side, coffee the other. Laptop on knee.

    Around 8am. Dog walk, local lake. Office is fresh air, trees, lake bench. Mobile work.

    Main bulk of day. Actual office in house. Mine is converted bedroom, my wife is in downstairs office.

    4 to 5 hours working on website stuff while on PEMF mat (pulsed electro magnetic field). Will know if it worked when I either reach 130 or develop some form of weird mutation....but in theory the mitochondria should be liking it.

    Few hours spread between working at standing desk and slumped in armchair.

    All with other minor diversions thrown in as well, of course.

    Back to lakeside office.

    ....and the occasional 30 mins evening catch up in infrared sauna office. Haven’t risked taking the laptop in but the mobile appears to soak it up ok.

    Then a final late tidy up back in real office.


    Would do more while sleeping in bed office but never figured out how to do it.
