5 Tips for Setting up a Home Office

So you’ve jumped at the chance of a business opportunity in Spain. Now it’s time to start setting up a home office. After all, you’re in charge, so why not work from home every so often!

Setting up a Home Office

Use a Designated Office Space

If you’re setting up a home office for the first time, make sure you know where your desk is going to be. Working while sitting in front of the television may be OK on the odd occasion, but it’s not the most productive room in the house.

By having your own home office, it makes it easier to separate work from daily life. If you’ve started a franchise business in the Costa del Sol, the Spanish lifestyle can be all too tempting. When you’re in a designated office space, it’s easier to stay focused on the job in hand.

Decorate your Home Office

Just because you’re setting up a home office, you can still incorporate a bit of personality into the place. You may need to get stuck into the paperwork, but a reminder of life outside the office is still important. Whether that be a picture of your family or your favourite football team.

Although it’s also key to ensure you don’t overdo it. So don’t think to decorate your home office means you can go crazy. The walls should be a calming colour, without being overpowering. Green is always a good suggestion as it resembles nature, triggering the brain into feeling relaxed but full of life.

Keep your Desk Organised

You sit down ready to start working from your home office, but you’ve lost your favourite pen. How do you make notes while sat in front of the computer all day? It’s another reason for setting up a home office properly.

Have a drawer specifically for spare stationery, remember to top up your supplies. If you were working in a larger corporate office, you wouldn’t expect to run out of post-it notes. So why should your home office be any different?

Invest in a Self-Storage Unit

Setting up a home office is all well and good, but what about your stock. If you’re running a franchise business in Spain, uStore-it have self-storage units in the Costa del Sol. After all, it’s another way of getting the right work/life balance. When you’ve finished work for the day, the last thing you want is to be surrounded by storage boxes. Even if it’s just somewhere to keep those all important files and legal documents, a self-storage unit is a good investment.

Remember to Leave the House

Lastly on our 5 tips for setting up a home office, is to remember to leave the house. Franchise opportunities in the Costa del Sol mean you to work in sunny Spain. As such, you deserve a break every so often. It’s all too easy to forget to go outside working from home, plus it’s not healthy to be stuck indoors all week either!
