Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas
Posted in: Small Space Design


Many businesses that started in the owner’s home office or garage become so successful they need to find commercial space. With some high-quality interior design, your home office can become a very comfortable place to get work done. However, while a cool home office can give a small startup flexibility and low overhead, it can also stifle expansion and hurt productivity. As the owner of a home office startup, you may wonder why you should move to commercial space. Perhaps the shift to a full office seems expensive and daunting. Perhaps you merely enjoy and the freedom you have working from home. Below are some good reasons why you should move from a home office to a commercial space.



The blurred line between work and personal life can cause distractions and interruptions in your home office. If your present all day, you may have to take time off during the day to perform domestic duties. Without clear start or quitting times, your work day can either be too short or drag on too long and further disrupt schedules. In fact, interruptions could cost you as much as 6 hours per day of productivity. Working in a home office requires you to have great internal discipline to separate out work time from personal time. Without this discipline you are better off having a separate office location to guarantee interruption free work time.

Local Laws

Depending on your business, running a home office may violate local laws. In most developed areas, residential areas are zoned to prevent large businesses. They can limit your company’s size, and even how much of your home can be given over to office space. If your business involves manufacturing or possibly hazardous products and materials, it may be banned outright. These rules are different for every state and local municipality. The only way to avoid them all together is to move your office to a commercial property.

New Employees

As your company expands with new employees, you will run out of space in a home office. There are certain things that every office needs. New employees need desks, chairs, and space for other equipment. Even if you have a very large home office you will swiftly run out of space. Even if you don’t, additional staff will exhaust many of your needed amenities. Will your staff be satisfied with your home bathroom? Is there enough parking on your street to accompany them? These problems will quickly become insurmountable as your staff expands. All these problems would also be easily solved in commercial setting.

Client Visits

A home office might make it difficult to host clients. Even the most trusting clients and customers will begin to wonder if they meet you for a business meeting at a private household. You might be able to avoid this early in your company’s lifetime. As you expand and sell more though, it will become unavoidable to meet with certain people.Check out office space that can give you a professional image to hold meetings. A commercial setting grants you instant credibility that can be useful in business negotiation.


If your company is just you in an isolated home office, it might get very lonely. All humans need regular social interaction to remain well-adjusted. Even if it’s just a little small talk around a water cooler can help. Moreover, your company might benefit from a co-office situation even if you are the only employee. Being in the same space as other entrepreneurs might bring fresh ideas as you see how they handle their companies. Moreover, with the number of coworking spaces in the US, it would be relatively easy to find a space near you. You can get involved in the community which could give you connections to others. This could benefit you on a personal and professional level. An office environment can provide mental, as well as practical solutions the home office cannot.

There are many good reasons to move from a home office to a commercial space. Even if you have the perfectly designed home office, you should consider growing you business. Commercial spaces are free of personal distractions. Your home office many violate any number of local zoning laws. You cannot add new employees effectively with a home office. You can’t really stage client visits in your home office. Finding a shared office might help with loneliness. These reasons show why a commercial property will let your business expand and flourish.
