Organizing Your Home Office

Working from home can be fantastic, provided the setting is ideal. See more home office decor pictures.

Teleworking is dreamy. Your lunch hour can be instantly transformed into a much-needed naptime. Your pets are less insane because they can pester you all day long as opposed to the few hours you're home and awake after a long commute. Provided your kids know how to play quietly, you can save money on daycare. And when you need a quick break, you can actually get something done around the house rather than dinking around wasting time in the break room.

That said, it's important to have a good setup, otherwise, the time you do spend working from home could become a little disorganized. So what's necessary in a top-quality home office?
