Work at Home

Design your own business so you can work at home

Running your own business is one of the easiest ways to work from home. By Eileen Figure Sandlin

Interior designers, or decorators update the appearance and functionality of interior spaces in both residential and business buildings.

Interior redesign

Imagine taking stock of a person’s furnishings and decorative accessories, then rearranging or “repurposing” them in the same space. That’s the function of the interior redesigner, who uses design skills similar to those of the interior redesigner to work his or her magic. There are actually two career paths in interior redesign. The first is in residential or commercial redesign; the second is in real estate staging, in which the redesigner sizes up a home for sale and makes improvement and updating suggestions that can help the home sell faster.

Get started with your business

A great advantage of a home design business is that it can be operated out of your home. That keeps overhead low, and you may be able to take a home business deduction on your taxes. If you start as a sole proprietorship, you will have few paperwork requirements when it comes to filing taxes. You can operate any of these businesses without employees, and you often can start out with tools and materials you already have. More...
