A Home Office Creation
"Work is work" we all know that feeling. We wish there was less of it, but bills still need to be paid, correspondence still needs to be written, and the kitchen table is already hard enought to keep clear without adding piles of paper to it. Here are a few tips from California Closets for creating a home office space in your residence.
Most importantly, you need to dedicate a space in your house that is solely for work. Whether this means rearranging your den to create space for a desk and some cabinets or creating storage near your bedroom desk, an area needs to be set aside that can be a work-safe zone. The ideal situation is a separate room set aside for your home office, free from the distractions of a television set.
Setting up adequate and effective storage is very important or your home office will soon become cluttered (kitchen table syndrome!) 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.
Keep your home office aesthetically pleasing. Your office space should make you feel happy, clear headed and inspired. Although you theoretically can get just as much work done on a card table tucked in your garage, you will stop using the space before long as it just won't be a space you want to spend time. The way your home office looks will make a big difference in how effective your work space can be. Fresh plants, paintings, pictures, fun ornaments are great ways to help you feel happy in your home office.
A customized office storage system will literally transform the space. 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.
