The opportunity to work from home is one which has many advantages. Whether self employed or working as part of an organisation with a flexible working policy, more and more people are choosing to stay at home and work, rather than heading out on a morning commute, in the cold and rain.

Of course, everything positive in life has a downside, and in the case of working at home, that is about living in your work space, and vice versa. It can be hard to separate the two, especially when you’re off duty and trying to relax! Conversely, it can often be hard to switch off from relaxation mode, and start working with total concentration. A good way to separate the two parts of your life can be to create a work space and a home space. But, what if you don’t have a lot of space to play with?

There are ways that you can create a co-working and co-living space, e.g. a multi-use room.
