When choosing the location of your home office, consider noise and traffic factors. For example, if the office is close to the street, you may hear people walking or driving. In addition, consider the traffic in your home. If you plan to work in your office while the rest of the family is at home, place it near the kitchen, bathroom or family room, which will attract many visitors or to be easily distracted by the surrounding sounds.
On the other hand, if you have young children, it may be better to place the office relatively close to their playroom to monitor their activity.
