Many of us are still doing some of our work from home, and making sure our home office supports productivity is important. Being organized is key to successful at-home work. A well-organized home office makes it easier to focus and get things done efficiently. Here are some organizational ideas to get the most from your St. Louis home office:
Keep it Simple
A simple set-up works best for keeping things organized. You want clean surfaces, no clutter, and minimal distractions. Using minimalism as a template when thinking about how you can be better organized in your office space can be very useful. Instead of putting several bins on your desk to hold different things, assess what you actually need within reach and leave it at that. Things you don’t need throughout the day can be stored elsewhere to keep your desk space feeling neat and clean.
Make it Easy
This is one of the most important things for any organization project - it needs to be user friendly. Getting overly specific with where things need to go or overlooking the things you use on a regular basis can make you less likely to stick with the systems you put in place. Step back and look at your daily workflow and use that as a guide for what kind of organization you need.
Combine Design and Function
Especially if your office also functions as your kitchen or living room, you’ve probably already had to consider how to make a space that is practical but that doesn’t change the feeling of the rest of the room. Even if you have a separate office room in your home, finding pieces that you enjoy the design of that also have an organizational purpose is a great way to fill the space with useful items instead of clutter.
Speaking of clutter, a great way homeowners can maintain an organized home office is to get in the habit of decluttering their desk daily. Taking just five minutes when you finish up work to put things back where they belong and clear off your work surface can help you stay on top of your things and prevent disorganization from taking over.
An expertly organized home office will lead to greater productivity, so it’s well worth the initial effort to get it done.
