Lots of people have been enjoying the benefits that come from working from home lately. For them, the hours spent each week commuting to an office have meant more quality time with their family or pets. Some have even found themselves to be more productive than ever before in this new environment.
Along with those benefits, though, come some potential expenses. As just one example, consider the fact that in most cases, companies will purchase commercial furniture, fixtures, or finishes for an office, which are intended to be used by a lot of people for a very long time. These items are often fairly expensive. Most people, however, will opt for much cheaper furniture, fixtures, and finishes. These items are not built to take a beating, which is reflected in the price. You may find that your home may be experiencing a lot of wear and tear, requiring you to think about replacing things in your home.
