Don’t you wish there was an easy way to improve your home office?

Well, you’re in luck! We’ve been in the office industry for several years. That’s how we’ve come to discover these clever tips on improving a home office.

Follow us along as we share our insider tips, tricks, and steps on turning a sad home office into a dream!

1. Improve storage.

The first move you’ll want to make is making room. Organization and decluttering will help with improving space. There is no shame in getting creative with your organization, either. In fact, we encourage you to have as much fun with this as possible! You can even use your storage and organization tools as a form of decor.

How so? You may ask.

You can use shelves, containers/bins, or folders in different colors, patterns, or designs. There are a series of options for improving storage.

We recommend:

Stations. Create stations with their own individual purpose. For example, a mail station could be a small blue container for all outgoing mail. If you have a heavy inbox, then you can have a yellow container all incoming mail.

Use the walls. Hanging shelves are a great way to take advantage of wall space. They alleviate desk space and look chic!

2. Categorize

Categorizing is a treasure! Making categories puts everything in order. You’ll never lose anything; and if you do, categories will make it easier to find.

Color-coding. You can pick up a packet of color-coded labels or stickers at any local office supply store. These can easily serve as a labeling tool for different categories. Put all to-do task in one pile and designate a certain color for the pile.

3. Throw away old home office supplies.

The time has come to be rid of the old and bring in the new. The only way to declutter is to rid yourself of items that take up space. Sift through your home office supplies: is there anything you don’t need? Try to strive for keeping only the bare minimum.

Paper. Go through old stacks of documents and shred away all that’s not needed for the future. Great documents to shred are:

  • utility bills
  • ATM receipts
  • bank statements
  • credit card statements
  • voided checks
  • employee pay stubs and records

You’ll never want to shred medical records, insurance documents, will, certificates of birth/death or marriage/divorce.

Technology. While it’s bittersweet, throwing away that dusty projector won’t be so difficult when you see how much room it leaves you will.
