A Home Office Makeover – Tips to Organize Your Workspace for Productivity

When it comes to your home office, you want to have a conducive place for both work and relaxation. That being said, when you’re in the middle of working, you don’t want your kids running around or having a party in the same room. Luckily, there are many ways to transform your space into an organized oasis for work and play. Here are some tips on how to organize your workspace for productivity.


Maximize Space

If you don’t have a lot of space, think creatively about your workstation and how you might utilize the space in your office

You can often use part of an unused room in your house as a home office and save valuable square footage. Many people find that they can do their work much better when they’re not crammed into a small room with boxes and clutter around them all day. Try using a closet or another section of your home to set up an office area where you can focus on projects without distractions. It’s also important to take measurements before you start moving furniture around to know what will fit the best, particularly if you want to use a room in your house for your office.




Declutter your space

After you’ve set up your workspace, it’s time to declutter. Clutter creates distractions and makes it difficult to focus. When you’re setting up your workplace, don’t leave any items lying around that aren’t necessary for your day-to-day work tasks. If you’re not sure what to do with certain items, put them in a place that will out of sight but still accessible if needed (like under the desk or on a shelf). Once you’ve finished decluttering, take some time to organize your desktop. Create folders on your computer for both personal and business-related items so that everything is easy to find when needed. Put frequently used files on the desktop so they are easily accessible. Assemble a toolkit of office supplies that are always available at your desk for tasks like making copies or printing documents. This way, if your printer is down or you need something specific for a task, it’s always within reach without having to go searching elsewhere in the office. Try using sticky notes as reminders for upcoming deadlines so they are front and center without distracting from what you’re currently working on.


Organization Ideas

  • Use a large bulletin board to keep your office organized.
  • Keep the essentials close by with a caddy on your desk.
  • Don’t let your laptop get in the way by putting it on a stand.
  • Invest in some comfortable yet professional office furniture, like an ergonomic office chair or kneeling stool.
  • Get some plants or flowers to liven up your workspace and help you relax.
  • Buy a whiteboard so you can easily write down ideas for new posts or links to social media posts.
