How to Organize A Home Office

Whether you’re using your home office to work from home or for personal business, getting it clean and organized can make your time there more productive and pleasant. To help you get your home office under control, we’ve created a plan of action. Read below to find out how More Space Place Sarasota/Bradenton can help you get organized and maximize your space. 

Assess the space

Before you can get started with decluttering and sorting what you have it’s important to divide up the space. If you organize the space in small chunks, you’re less likely to get overwhelmed and burnt out. You can divide your space in a multitude of ways. One way is to divide your space into walls. Depending on how much stuff you have, every day, tackle one side/wall of the office until the space is complete. You can also divide your space by storage items. For example day 1 for the desk, day 2 for the cabinetry, etc. No matter what way you decide, always start organizing with a plan in mind. 

Take out the bulk:

Unlike organizing a closet, decluttering a home office may be easier since the bulk of items will probably be old paperwork you either need to file or throw away. But if you create piles for your items and they start to grow bigger, you can overwhelm the space and feel claustrophobic as a result. This can lead to your decluttering taking up much more time (and space!) than it needs to! 

In order to counteract this, we recommend labeling your piles and keeping each pile in a cardboard box or bin. By keeping them in individual spaces you’re less likely to spread out your items and cause more clutter. Then once you have a good amount of items in your boxes/bins, physically remove the bins from the room so you have space to move again. 

Use organization tools

After you have decided what you want to keep, donate, and throw away/shred, it’s time to organize! In order to prevent this clutter from building up again, it’s smart to invest in a few organization tools that will best benefit your space. For example, if you are someone who uses a lot of writing utensils in your office, consider installing wall-mounted cups in front of your desk. If you like having piles and need to keep paperwork handy, you can opt for labeled open-top baskets, or file folders/drawers if you want to stay extra organized!
