Working from home is becoming common among entrepreneurs, freelancers, and office employees alike. While remote working provides numerous perks, the organization of your home office may actually be hindering your productivity. Here are some tips from the experts at Closet & Storage Concepts Nevada for organizing your home office to improve your productivity.
Minimize Desk Clutter
Digging through loose papers and supplies piled on your desk is a sure fire way to hinder your productivity. When you can’t find an important document, having to search for it forces you to disengage and set your focus elsewhere. The visual appearance of clutter can also increase stress levels and impact mental clarity. Keep only essential items on your workspace and store everything else in organized drawers.
Along with minimizing clutter on your desk, wire management can also improve the overall appearance of your workspace. Keep cords tucked away whenever possible. Bind multiple cords together with zip ties and tape them out of sight. You can also use cord covers to conveniently disguise them on your desk.
The biggest mistake a home office dweller makes is underestimating the amount of storage they need. A desk and a laptop and we’re good to go, right? Providing yourself with enough storage will make a huge difference in your overall productivity. You need adequate space to manage paper, supplies, reference materials, files, etc. A custom storage solution will help you find a home for everything and avoid the future headache of piles of stuff hanging around the office.
Give yourself a boost by refreshing your office color. There is a psychology behind the way color impacts our brain, and the color of your home office can influence your productivity. Green and blue improve efficiency, focus, and a sense of well being.
