Home offices can be wonderful additions to any home, particularly when you’re working from home more often than not, or if you’re trying to run an at-home business. For most people, the dining room table just won’t do. There are many benefits to creating and furnishing a home office—half the fun is in buying furniture and office supplies—and we’re going to share just a few with you today.
Working from home can be challenging if you don’t have a dedicated space. Friends and family tend to not recognize or respect that you are actually at work if you’re trying to do it on the couch in your pajamas. Creating a home office sets a physical boundary so that everyone knows when you’re at work and when you’re not. Moreover, you’ll find yourself being more productive when you have your own dedicated work space.
Your home office comes with multiple ways to save cash. From virtually eliminating your commuting, lunch, and wardrobe expenses to increasing the value of your home, you might be surprised at just how much of your paycheck you get to keep when you work from home. You don’t even have to call home to check on the family—just step into the next room!
Plus, home offices are tax deductible. When you buy furniture for your home office, it’s a tax write-off. The same is true of any equipment or supplies you need to perform your job out of your home office. You may even be able to deduct a portion of your home’s energy expenses, as well as part of your Internet expense, provided that you only use your home office for work.
If you’re ready to set up your own home office, visit us at Home Consignment Center to buy furniture and other great finds. You can also consign or sell your own gently used furniture if you’re looking to upgrade your room. Visit our website, drop by one of our locations, or simply give us a call at (925) 272-0067 for more information about how it works and what we have to offer.

If you are one of the millions of Americans who is fortunate enough to work out of the comfort of your own home, then it's important that you create a workspace for yourself that is both inspirational and in line with the rest of your home's décor. The key to making your home office an extension of your home is to buy furniture and other interiors that reflect the style and theme already present in the rest of the property. You can also make it feel just as cozy as the other rooms in the home by clearing up clutter and hiding electronics and other gadgets that can be distracting to the eye when not in use.
Be sure to also buy furniture that falls in line with the color scheme that you've established in other areas of the home. This will ensure that there is a solid flow throughout the home and that your office doesn't stick out in a negative way. The perfect place to find the furniture pieces you need to complete your home office is the Home Consignment Center.
