Many people would love to be able to work from home – and with good reason. Being able to work from home provides you with a sense of freedom that you can't get when you are obligated to show up to the same place, at the same time, five days a week. While there are definitely some downsides, the advantages of working from home largely outweigh them. This is especially true for people who work better independently and need a quiet atmosphere in order to concentrate. While being able to interact with coworkers can allow a nice break throughout your day, sometimes we don't always love the people we work with. And although many companies nowadays are becoming more evolved and flexible in their policies, there are many businesses who are still set in traditional ways of insisting their employees wear a suit and tie to work, have weekly meetings, and keep the playfulness to a minimum. 

Below is a list of the best things about working from home. What are your favorite parts about working home?
