A Home Office Creation
Ever get the feeling that bills needing to be paid, correspondance still waiting for a reply, and vouchers still waiting to be redeemed, fill up your kitchen table. When the paper piles up it gets harder to get through it because not only is it waiting there to be resolved - it has to be cleaned up and sorted first. Here are a few tips from California Closets for creating a home office space in your residence.
First and foremost, you need to dedicate a space in your house just 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. Ideally a separate room set aside for your home office, free from the distractions of a television set.
Next you need to set up good storage options. Setting up the right storage is an important prerequisite to any home office. 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 and essentially the piles of paper have just moved from the kitchen table to the home office. 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 should be aesthetically pleasing. It should be a space where you feel happy and inspired. Although you theoretically can get just as much work done on a card table tucked in your garage, the way your home office looks will make a big difference in how effective your work space can be. It will be easier to concentrate on your many tasks if you are working in an aesthetically pleasing space. Put up pictures, plants and other decorations to keep the space fresh and to help you feel inspired.
Consider a customized office storage system. Every space is unique and deigning storage options specifically for your space will literally transform it. Especially for smaller spaces where every inch counts, consider custom-built wall-mounted shelves, wrap-around desks and customized overhead storage cabinets.
