Here in the Henderson-Las Vegas area, many people either work from home exclusively or have a home office for when they need it. Having an organized home office can help relieve stress and keep you focused during the workday. There are many ways to organize a home office and many methods for storage. Finding what works best for you and your work style is part of creating a perfect home office. However, there are some basic features that are important. Here are three things we’ve found to be key components of home office storage.
If you haven’t had a bookcase in your home office, you’ve probably experienced stacks of books, magazines, and papers pile up on whatever open surface is available. To keep your reading material organized, safe from damage, and easily accessible, a bookcase is necessary. Bookcases can also be used to store other items and to display decorative pieces you want shown.
2. Sufficient Shelving
Having additional shelving used exclusively for storage is key. Consolidate small items into decorative boxes or bins that can be neatly placed on the shelves. You can also use boxes to store extra cords or other electronic items that can cause clutter and gather dust when they aren’t being used. Using storage containers helps with clutter and the overall aesthetic of the space, but it also keeps things in a place where you can find and keep track of them. As with the bookshelves, you can also place decorative items on the shelves to add visual interest to your home office. After all, it’s a place where you’ll spend a lot of time, so you should create a space you enjoy.
In addition to shelves, boxes, and bins, your home office should also have drawers. Depending on your style, the drawers can either be part of the shelving unit or part of your desk. The boxes and bins can be nice for storing items you don’t use as often because they can sit high on shelves where they’re displayed but less accessible. Drawers are handy for storage of items you use day-to-day. If your Las Vegas business requires a lot of documents, designate drawer space for filing. Other drawer storage items can be things like office supplies, crafting tools, or whatever instruments you use for your work.
