10 Organizing Tips for a Small Home Office

If you’re working from home, create a space that helps you work at your best! Here are 10 tips that can help you organize a small home office in order to increase productivity:

  1. Consider dual purpose/function furniture, like a desk with built-in storage, to maximize your space.
  2. Take advantage of vertical space. Use the wall space to store books, supplies, etc.
  3. Consider the scale of your furniture compared to the size of your room, including desks, bookcases, chairs, task lights, etc.
  4. Think sleek and slender to open your space. The narrower the profile, the less heavy and weighed down your room will feel. 
  5. Keep in mind that the more open your drawers and shelves are, the more you can see the contents. This will impact the amount of visual clutter you perceive. 
  6. Reduce the clutter on your desktop by only keeping the tools that you use daily. Other items can be stored in shelves and cabinets.
  7. Laptops are great for small spaces because they don’t take up too much space and you can move them to any place you want to work.
  8. If you don’t have a home office, consider setting up a small “supply center” for your dining room table, kitchen counter, or wherever you work. This can store a few extra pens, paper, etc. and serve as a good work area. 
  9. Use the back of your door as extra storage. You can hang inboxes on your door or jewelry organizers to store your office supplies.
  10. Does your home office have a closet? Use a hanging, compartmentalized clothes storage unit to store extra office supplies
