Only if you want the tax deduction. You can only deduct if your use is considered a "home office". Although requirements have been relaxed somewhat, the IRS is still picky about what constitutes a "home office". It's best if you don't use that part of the house for anything but work-related stuff.

I.e. we don't have to depreciate/deduct use of the home if we don't want to? I'd rather not, since it seems that'd it add a lot of complication and provide little benefit.

Thanks for the help :)
