Wave Goodbye To Clutter - Storage In The Home Office That Works
Whether you work from home for an hour or two a week or have made it a permanent move, storage in the home office that works is essential. What are the options?
Tailored shelves that fit
The problem with ready-built or flat pack furniture is that the dimensions have already been decided – and that means they will either fit or they won’t. And when a bookcase will slot into a space, it is rarely a perfect fit.
Tailoring home office storage is the ideal solution and there is nothing better than utilising wall space with tailored made shelving unit. From over-the-desk space to a full-on library type system on one wall, tailored shelving will solve many of your home office storage problems in one hit.
Hideaway stuff with the streamlined look
For many of us, the home office is a small space occupying a corner of a room or in part of another room – in other words, work items can be seen when you are living in other spaces of your home.
If you are not the tidiest of works – all those papers and books! – being able to see this ‘clutter’ can be depressing, especially on days when you are trying to shut off from work.
A great solution is to opt for the streamlined look and that means having doors on shelving so that everything is not only put away but hidden away too.
Use storage to create the home office boundaries
The home office is an important space and so you need to give it some value in respect of the space you allocate for it, as well as giving it a style of its own.
Storage solutions can be used to zone a space and that means it can also be used to create the home office area. Thinking about the things you have to store, you can design your own storage solutions whilst creating beautiful pieces of furniture that mark out the home office territory.
Cubbyholes are great!
Sometimes, the best storage solutions are those that are simplest. When things need to be opened and put away again etc., we are less likely to make the effort especially at the end of a long day at your desk.
If you enjoy a clear desk, for example, cubby holes are great for popping in notes and papers that you will need to consult at some point. Small drawers are great for stashing away things like pens and paperclips, or any other small items that you use.
Use awkward spaces
The thing about clutter is that it only becomes clutter when items don’t have allocated storage space. No matter how large or small your home office, utilising the space you have available is key.
Aside from bespoke shelving and other storage solutions, considering utilising other areas of the room. for example, a shelf over the door is great for storing things that you need but don’t need to get to very often.
