Have you decided it’s finally time to carve out a space in your home for an office? Setting up an office in your home is easier and more affordable than you might have thought. A desk and some storage space are all you need to get started.

Desks can be had cheaply or crafted from found materials. Plastic storage bins and metal file cabinets can be found for a song at used furniture outlets,warehouses, flea markets and estate sales. Shelving extends your storage space and lets you display a few decorative items.

If you want to go the DIY route, consider building your own custom shelving with a boltless construction system. An affordable, heavy-duty boltless frame is easy to build and allows for custom configuration. Aluminum, steel or powder-coated tubes and other pieces snap into place, requiring no building experience.

The bonus for those just starting out is that a boltless construction system allows to add sections or reconfigure your entirely as your business grows. If you end up renting an office space or expanding your existing office, you can easily move your shelves.

Entrepreneurs need flexible, affordable solutions, especially early on. A boltless construction system gives you the adaptability you need without the cheap, unprofessional look of makeshift office furniture.
