From a certain angle, working from home seems like heaven. There's no commute, no arguments about whose turn it is to make the tea round, and you can even work all day in the comfort of your pyjamas.

Designers and artists especially can gain the most from working from home as you can create a really bespoke personal work environment and put together a schedule suited to you and you alone. That can often allow you to see much more of your family and also work with a wider range of clients than you might as a studio freelance artist.
