A Home Office Creation
Get started setting up your home office today! Be inspired! Here are a few tips from California Closets for creating a home office space in your residence.
Look around your home. Think about all the spaces that might work for a home office. You need to find a space in your home that you can dedicate solely to work. If you don't have the luxury of dedicating an entire room to be a home office - try rearranging the den to make room for a desk, or make a desk space in your bedroom. Ideally create a space that is quiet and free from the distractions of a television.
Set up adequate storage at the very beginning. If you don’t have anywhere to put files, letters, papers and home office supplies, your desk will slowly become more and more cluttered until you can no longer use it. Desk drawers are often helpful for smaller items, but consider attached file cabinets and overhead storage to maximize space. With enough storage space, it’s easy to keep your home office organized.
Your home office must make you feel happy, clear headed and inspired to work. Therefor is must be a space that you find aesthetically pleasing. Sure a card table in the garage will in theory function as a home office - but do you really want to spend an hour every day in the dark garage? The way your home office looks will have a big impact on how productive you are when you are using the space. Put up pictures, plants and other decorations to ease your mind.
With customized office storage system the possibilities for your office space are limitless. Especially for smaller spaces where every inch counts, consider custom-built wall-mounted shelves, wrap-around desks and customized overhead storage cabinets.
