If you are going to freelance and want to work at home, you really need a private space so you can work efficiently. Early this year we had our room renovated, I was using our room for several years as an office and along with that are the irks that easily takes away your focus on you work like the TV, the kids, people coming in and out of the room, your stuffs keeps getting unorganize no matter how hard you try to keep them organize, always looking for something that you need but can never find it.
So when we had our room renovated, we have this closet room which is also the entrance to the bathroom which I also had renovated to be my office. I had the large built in cabinet removed and made space for my stuffs. Bought a USB wireless LAN so less cables and wires. Now all my things are a little bit more organized, I know where to find stuffs I need.
