How do I claim utilities if it is not for home office?

I am a cake decorator and work from home.  I do not have a designated home office, however, I do use a lot of my utilities in my home for my job.  How do I claim these?

How do I claim utilities if it is not for home office?

To deduct utilities, you must use your workspace regularly and exclusively for business.

Otherwise, your utilities are not deductible.
