A home office. The place where you go to get as much work done as possible– you complete the tasks that have to get done. Yet it can easily become disheveled and cramped if you don’t keep it organized. Here are some organization tricks for your home office.
Mail & Magazine Rack
This is the first step to reduce massive amounts of potential clutter on your desk. You can organize any mail or magazines you have, and keep them from piling onto your desk. A nice rack should be relatively easy and cheap to get set up, and will give your office an much more professional vibe.
This may be a very direct plug, but A Space Place has various office storage solution options for you! If you have old documents or other materials for your home business, why not put them into a safe space away from home? This will free up your work area and increase your productive potential. Our climate controlled storage will ensure that your important documents are kept pristine, and our key-card only access area will ensure that they remain safe!
Another way to remove any potential clutter on your desk. You can put office decorations on your wall shelves rather than just your desk. Have any books or journals you usually just pile on your desk? Well, now you can look more professional and keep them on your wall shelf. A well shelf will open up a new avenue for your interior design potential in your office, and can fill up any blank spaces on your wall.
It can be tempting to simply pile all the utensils and documents in your office on your desk, and maybe even the ground. But a simple drawer can be a game changer. A drawer gives you access to a lot of storage space. Use the drawer for documents and files, or office supplies like a stapler and scissors. This can especially come in handy if your desk doesn’t have drawers built into it.
Too many wires floating around in your office? A storage basket can be a nice storage solution. Place it by the outlet on the wall where you are plugging in the majority of your electronic devices. Now you have a basket to put all of the wires or cords in, and keep them untangled and more organized than they were beforehand.
These are some simple ways to make your home office look more professional, just by freeing up space and organizing.
