Form 8829 business use of your home

My wife and I work from home 2 to 3 days a week, about 20 combined per month. We setup a home office with a chair, desk, monitors, printer, etc. we only use the home office when we work from home. The room serves only that purpose now.
We go into our company the remaining days where we have a desk.
Does this qualify as a home office? Can we claim the deduction?
Thanks

Does this qualify as a home office?=========>>it depends; you as EEs may only take the home office deduction if you maintain the home office for the convenience of your employer. An employee?s home office is deemed to be for an employer?s convenience only if it is:a condition of employment ;necessary for the employer?s business to properly function, or needed to allow the employee to properly perform his or her duties.
The convenience of employer test is not met if using a home office is for your convenience or because you can get more work done at home


Can we claim the deduction?==========>>it depends; as said above; ;you as EEs may only take the home office deduction if you maintain the home office for the convenience of your employer.

Home Office

That's what i figure but the "convenience" part is confusing.
If they didn't have a cubicle for me to work in, that would be their convenience?
since i have a cubicle that only I use... I assume that means it's for my convenience?
Thanks
