It’s hard work being an entrepreneur. You have to find ways to keep pushing your employees to work faster and smarter, and you are feeling the pinch from every angle yourself. It can feel relentless. This is why it’s important to establish a proper work-life balance. But on top of this, it’s vital that you have a home base that you can relax in, but also, that you can work from if needs be. So, for any entrepreneur out there that is trying to get the balance right between home office and home comforts, what are the best options?

Set Up In The Basement

If you’ve got a basement, this is the perfect opportunity to separate your work life from your home life. As soon as you go down into the basement, you are in work mode, and as soon as you leave, you can shut that door and leave your work worries behind. Of course, with setting up in the basement, there can be issues from house to house. Flooding is one of the more common ones in any basement, which would not be great if you had a lot of paperwork! So, it’s important to look at more details on waterproofing the basement so you don’t have this issue. As far as setting up a home office in the basement is concerned, you’ve got a lot more space than a typical room in a house, meaning you can personalize it (or depersonalize) it so you can work effectively.

Decorate Your Home Office Differently

The difference in your working environment compared to your home environment has to be substantial. It’s much easier when you are going to work in a physical office with other people, but when you are working from home; it’s much harder to make this difference glaring. So, to put yourself into work mode, if you have to set up a home office in another part of your house, make this home office as different to the rest of your home’s aesthetic as possible. Paint it a different colour, think about the best ways to help your mind focus on to the task of working, or place handy reminders to tell yourself that you are there to work. The big problem with working from home is that there are a lot of distractions, which can stop you doing what you’re meant to do.

Make Your Home Office Distraction Free

This is why it’s important to make your home as relaxing as possible, but your home office as nurturing for work as you can. To make your home office distraction free depends on the type of person you are. If you’re an entrepreneur that demands creativity, you might need a lot more stimuli dotted around the place. However, there is a fine balance to maintain with this. If you’re there to work, you need to be focused and productive. This is why a lot of people struggle with working from home. But also, if you have a stressful career as an entrepreneur, you need to have your home environment as relaxing as possible. But if you need to work, it’s better for your frame of mind to have somewhere that is completely separate to the rest of the house, so you don’t confuse home with work and vice versa.
