This can honestly be anywhere you have the best space. It could be in your lounge, tv room, spare room or even your bedroom. Now it really isn’t suggested that you work in your bedroom only because your bedroom is the place where you sleep. So when you have to wake up in the morning you might be tempted to lay in bed with your laptop. But don’t worry if it’s the only space you have.
