Don't forget the closet!
Too often your home office is in a spare bedroom and the closet in that bedroom has not been integrated into your overall office plan. If you have that closet stuffed with old clothes and junk, empty it out and use the space!
Make sure you think outside of the box - in other words don't keep the clothing bar in the closet, get some shelving and baskets that work with your business or home office supplies. Consider keeping equipment like your copier or printer in the closet as well - whatever you can do to conserve your working space and make sure you have room to do what you need to do. Consider integrating your filing system into the closet as well - keep the decks clear and watch your stress level plummet!
