Create the Workspace That You Will Love with These Home Office Organization Ideas
When you’re working from home, creating a space that encourages focus and creativity can be tricky. It can be challenging to create the boundary between the space dedicated for your work and the rest of your home, and this physical challenge can translate to a challenge in mindset and performance. Take the first step in handling this by finding a way to organize your space for work.
You will find that you don’t need a large area in your home to create a space that you will love. With the right furniture, some inspiration, and smart ways to organize your things, you can have a personalized space in no time.
Check out these ideas to help you organize your space:
They key to organization is finding a ‘home’ for all your things, from your important files to the loose paper clips that come with them.
Versatile Storage: Rolling Cabinets
When it comes to cabinets, there are endless options for you! You can try mounted wall cabinets, steel file cabinets, or bins and cubbies. One of the most practical is a rolling cabinet, simply because you can move it around.
Cabinets can be the center of a space, and often they can define your space’s overall feel. Really bulky ones also have a tendency to occupy and overpower a space. A rolling cabinet can help you address this. When choosing one, find a cabinet with enough storage but a minimalist design, one that will blend with your space well.
Ready-to-Go Desks: Laptop Desks, Desk Converters, and Standing Desks
When designing your workspace, you’d want to create a balance between stability and versatility. On one hand, you need a go-to, fixed focus space whenever you need to get a task done. On the other hand, you need the space to be versatile enough for all your other activities. This is especially important if we’re talking about limited space.
The right desk can give you that. One option you have is a laptop desk, which is typically multi-function and can provide adjustability features in terms of angle and height. Another option is a desk converter, which allows you to convert your desk and make it higher so you can work while standing. Or, you can decide to invest in a full standing desk for easy, automatic height adjustment so you can stand and sit whenever you want to.
Stay on Track with Corkboards
Calendars, to-do lists, and files for checking? You can store them in cabinets, or you can keep them in the open with corkboards and some pins. These boards are among the simplest yet most practical additions you can have in your home office. They will give a home to items that you need constant view of, such as a list of deadlines and tasks to complete (if you’re the type who prefers written down physical notes instead of typed up notes in your computer).
You can also design these boards so that they add to the overall vibe you want to create in your home office. Add some accessories, a good frame, and create the style you want!
Keep the Energy Flowing with Open Shelves
You have your cabinets for files and your drawers for office supplies. When it comes to decorative items, such as souvenirs from your trips that you want to keep or perhaps your favorite books, the best place for them would be somewhere they can be seen. Take them out and put them on display with an open shelf.
An open shelf can give a more natural feel, and it’s easy to create the right work atmosphere if you have an open shelf that you carefully fill with things that bring you joy. Be mindful, however, about the things you place in the shelf. Too much and it can look cluttered. The key is to simplify, minimize, and to pick only things that are truly important to you.
So, are you ready to create your workspace? You don’t need to do a complete overhaul at the moment—you can do the redesign by phases and perhaps select one area to work on this week, another next week, and so on until you achieve the correct look. Let’s get started!
