A home office can be a great asset to any home. It provides a place to complete work, homework, craft projects and more. However, home offices can easily become cluttered and messy. We’ve put together some of our favorite tips on getting the most from your home office space.
De-cluttering is one of the best ways to ensure that your home office is a productive space. Still have a pile of receipts from 2003? Is your drawer full of pens that are out of ink? Take some time to throw away, file, or put away any items sitting out. Not only will this make your office more aesthetically attractive, but you’ll save time and energy not having to dig through stacks of paper or an overstuffed junk drawer looking for what you need.
Invest in storage
Even the most organized homeowner is going to end up with a cluttered office if there’s not enough storage. Consider what items you keep in your home office (paperwork, supplies, etc) and evaluate whether or not you have adequate storage for each item. In particular, paperwork can pile up and create a real mess, so it’s important to keep to a filing system and have at least one filing cabinet. Shelves and drawers are also great for storing supplies, books, pictures and more. At Closet & Storage Concepts of Longmont, we can create a home office storage system custom designed to fit all your needs.
Add personal touches
Your home office doesn’t need to be completely devoid of personality. If you’re going to be spending a lot of time there, you should make it a space you enjoy. Pictures, awards, plants or flowers, or a bright accent wall can all add interest to your home office without being overbearing or adding to the clutter.
