Making the Most of Your San Antonio Home Office

For many San Antonio residents, the idea of having a workspace in the middle of all the distractions of the home may seem like an impossibility. However, with the correct amount of organization and the appropriate storage capacity, you can turn your cluttered desk or nook at home into a legitimate home office. California Closets San Antonio is a family-owned franchise that is based and manufactures locally in San Antonio. For 27 years, residents of San Antonio have benefited from the knowledge and expertise that California Closets San Antonio brings to the table, especially when it comes to home office storage and design.

A Home Office Creation

Despite the myriad distractions of your home, bills still need to be paid, correspondence still needs to be written, and the kitchen table just won’t cut it. Here are a few tips from California Closets for creating a home office space in your residence.

1. Most importantly, you need to dedicate a space in your house to 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.

2. Setting up 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. 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.

3. Keep your home office aesthetically pleasing. 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. There is no reason your home office space should look any less pleasant than your space in the actual office. Put up pictures, plants and other decorations to ease your mind.

4. Consider 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.
