A Home Office Creation
Are there piles of paper sitting on your dining table, kitchen bench, or cluttered work desk? Bills, receipts, cards, unanswered correspondance, concert tickets - it's easy to let the endless piles get bigger and bigger. Here are a few tips from California Closets for tackling those paper piles and creating a home office space in your residence.
Most importantly, create a space in your home that is dedicated solely to work. If you don't have the space to dedicate an entire room, you might set up a desk in your bedroom, or clear out the den to create space. The ideal situation is a space free from the distractions of a television set.
Now you have found the space you must set up good storage solutions. 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 the right storage space, it’s easy to keep your home office organized.
Make the space an inspiring place to be. Yes a card table tucked in your garage will work in theory, but you will stop working in the space before long because you won't feel good in there. The way your home office looks will make a big difference in how effective your work space can be. Put up pictures, fresh plants, and calming lights to keep you inspired while you work.
Optimize the space completely with a customized office storage system. Unmatched desks, cabinets and shelves can’t take advantage of your unique home office space because they were not designed with your space in mind. Especially for smaller spaces where every inch counts, consider custom-built wall-mounted shelves, wrap-around desks and customized overhead storage cabinets.
