Even if working from home isn’t part of your official job, a lot of “work” happens there. From paying bills to organizing family schedules to creating crafts and artwork, every home can benefit from an organized home office. If you’re just now creating a home office space or you already have one and you’re finally getting around to organizing it, these 4 ideas will help get you on your way.
- Make Some Space. For a lot of us, the home office is where the magic happens – it’s where we turn plans into reality, whether it’s a fridge-worthy art project or a promotion-worthy presentation. Our project table and craft desk has a counter-high top so you can work for hours without straining your back and large bookcase bins on both sides offer tons of convenient storage. Its creative design lets you work from both sides so the whole family can get involved.
- Stow It Where You Can See It. A bookcase is a staple in just about any home office. It keeps frequently-used office items close by when you need them, but out of the way when you don’t. Available in a variety of colors, the folding bookcase is a beautiful and extremely functional home office furniture piece that arrives fully assembled so you can just unfold it and start organizing.
- Relax and Organize. You can’t work all day long in the same position – you need to kick back and put your feet up from time to time. And if your comfy perch doubles as home office organization, that’s even better. The ottoman with filing cabinet has a cozy cushion top and a magazine rack on the side. But that’s not the only reason this multi-functional seat is so hardworking; it’s got a lift-up lid with space for legal or letter files. Pull out the drawer underneath for pens, papers, and other essentials. It also has 4 casters, 2 of them locking, so you can move this useful perch wherever you want it to be.
- Pay Attention to Details. Home office organization shouldn’t stop with the big items. You spend lots of time there, so make sure you have good lighting, a firm and inspiring place to stand, and fun art to keep you company. Try the office floor lamp with dual turnkeys at the shaft and shade of that allow the tilt and height to adjust to the perfect position for optimal lighting. For your feet – use a patterned outdoor rug that’s as supportive as it is cheery.
