Mary O’Brien - RE/MAX Welcome Home | East Bridgewater, MA Real Estate, Bridgewater, MA Real Estate


There are several benefits derived from the right home office. Set up a successful home office and you could create multiple streams of income or start your own business. You could also enter a successful telecommuting arrangement for an employer or pursue deep, lifelong passions or hobbies.

Profits linked to a successful home office

Website design, freelance writing, real estate investment, interior design and insurance sales are just a few of the many business and hobby avenues that you could explore after you set up a home office. However, simply having space to work or create out of won't necessarily connect you to inner and financial rewards.

You have to feel confident working from home, and that is not a given. It might not seem like it, but there are several challenges inherent in working out of a home office. Among these challenges are requests to perform personal errands for family and friends, childhood responsibilities and background noise.

If you're easily distracted, you may need to sound proof your home office. You also might need to keep televisions and telephones out of your home office. Even if background noise doesn't generally distract you, to succeed while working out of a home office, you need mental discipline.

Path to a successful home office

Signs of mental discipline include only checking emails during certain times of the workday and avoiding non-work related online searches until after you finish projects. You simply must be focused to get the most out of working from home. Other musts are the right tools and equipment. Generally, a successful home office has:

  • An ergonomically fit work desk and chair - Your desk and chair should be properly aligned. If not, you could experience back, wrists or neck pain.
  • Storage space - Even if you store documents on your computer, it's a good idea to have a backup storage space which might come in the form of filing cabinets or removable disks.
  • Robust computer - A computer with a small amount of memory and bandwidth will slow you down. Even if you have to invest money in a new computer, if you plan on working from home full-time, it may be well worth it.
  • Office supplies - Depending on the type of work that you do from home, you may need copy paper, staples, a stapler, scissors, file folders, stacking trays, writing pads and pens.
  • Mailing - Should you do a lot of mailing, a mail weighing station could prove to be a benefit.

Successful home office setups could benefit the economy

Home offices may continue to become attractive, especially as the numbers of people pursuing independent business endeavors grows. If companies that are operated out of a home office yield significant revenues and profits, successful home office setups could strengthen the overall economy.

These offices could also give serious minded professionals increased work life flexibility. After all, it's not just work life balance that can support smart business owners. Work life flexibility is also a huge gain for employees who have an entrepreneurial mindset.

Getting the most from a home office requires the right setup. It requires smart forethought, planning and sufficient resourcing. After that, workers need focus, commitment, resiliency and vision. Passion for the work that is being pursued is a must. Working out of a comfortable, supportive home office could help workers to experience many of the aforementioned benefits.

Nothing beats the warm, inviting feeling that you get when you enter your kitchen. However, failure to keep your kitchen clean can impact the quality of your kitchen. This ultimately can make a big difference in how homebuyers perceive your kitchen, along with whether they decide to submit an offer for your home. Fortunately, there are many simple ways to keep your kitchen looking great day after day, including: 1. Use baking soda to clean your tile floors. Your tile floors were beautiful after they were installed. But since that time, they've become dirty, grimy and tough to clean. But we have a surefire solution to help you revamp your kitchen's tile floor – baking soda and water. The combination of baking soda and water serves as a wonderful tile floor cleaner that is easy to apply with a mop. And within minutes of using it, you may notice that your kitchen's tile floor looks as good as new. 2. Eliminate wall splatters. Over the years, you've prepared a wide range of meals in your kitchen – everything from spaghetti and meatballs to sloppy joes. Unfortunately, not every dish has been an instant success. And as such, there have been many splashes of various ingredients that have landed on your kitchen's ceiling, floors and walls. Eliminating wall splatters may seem impossible at first. Luckily, there are numerous viable options to help you remove them without delay. For stains on painted walls, you may want to use a wet cloth or paper towel. The combination of a wet cloth or paper towel and tough scrubbing will allow you to eliminate stains on painted walls immediately. Comparatively, oily stains may require water and dishwashing soap. This mix is powerful and will ensure that you can remove cooking grease and other oily stains. 3. Disinfect the garbage disposal. Your kitchen's garbage disposal has served you well, but bad garbage disposal odors may persist if you're not careful. On the other hand, home sellers who focus on keeping their kitchen's garbage disposal clean can avoid such odors altogether. Looking for a great way to clean your kitchen's garbage disposal? Using a mix of vinegar, water and ice cubes can help you clean and deodorize your kitchen's garbage disposal quickly and effortlessly. Dedicate the necessary time and resources to disinfect your kitchen's garbage disposal, and you can guarantee that this disposal remains clean and performs consistently. 4. Wipe out the refrigerator. In many cases, home sellers may include a refrigerator in a home sale. As such, you'll want to keep this refrigerator looking and performing great. Wiping out your refrigerator and removing expired items regularly is essential. By doing so, you can remove the risk of bad odors from escalating in your kitchen. Of course, don't forget to keep an open box of baking soda in your refrigerator, too. This box should be changed periodically and will provide a fresh scent any time you open your refrigerator door. Keep your kitchen clean, and by doing so, you may be able to boost your chances of a quick home sale.
