DIY Home Office Set up Steps
- All items required– Gather in one place all necessary items you have to have for your home office. Computer, phone, whether you need drawers, bins or baskets, etc. This will help you decide how much space to look for in your home along with storage needed.
- Measure the square footage requirements needed for the space to house all these items. Think of the vertical space, as well as horizontally/width of the space you could use.
- Outlet & Wifi access- Choose a space that has easy access to the appropriate outlets and connection and if it gets a good signal in that part of the house. Check your signal before putting in the work setting it up there. For a Better Signal, Consider getting an a)–Outlet Ethernet adapter or b)– Outlet Ethernet adapter
- Privacy-Find a space in your home that is quiet enough for you, and maybe even the ability to close up and put your work away when you are done, like an Armoir or closet.
- Addition Storage needed for all items- from a printer to bins for files and paper storage, to pens and pencils. You can use cups, bins, rolling carts, and even boxes.
