Do

Be re­al­is­tic about the space that you will need for both the stu­dio and other es­sen­tial ar­eas when choos­ing a lo­ca­tion for your stu­dio.

Look at other stu­dios in the area, as there’s no point set­ting up close to an­other stu­dio un­less you can of­fer some­thing unique or dif­fer­ent to its ser­vices.

Con­sider whether the lo­ca­tion you are con­sid­er­ing is suit­able and con­ve­nient for both you and po­ten­tial clients.

Don’t

Set up a stu­dio at home with­out check­ing the plan­ning and tax im­pli­ca­tions of run­ning a busi­ness in a res­i­den­tial area.

Un­der­es­ti­mate how much time it will take to set up a stu­dio.

Forget that you may need some­one to staff the stu­dio or re­cep­tion area if cus­tomers are likely to drop in on spec.
