Since the month of January at my house is all about organizing, I thought I’d share some of my favorite office and work space inspiration with you. And as an added bonus I’ve included three of my tested and proven organizing tips.
Organizing Tip #1: A Pretty Workspace=A Productive Workspace
I don’t know about you but I don’t want to be work in a space that is uninspiring and lacks a sense of style. Creating a stylish workspace can be done by simply investing in a few colorful and chic desk accessories to hold your office tools and papers. Head to your local big box store and shop the kitchen section for decorative glass jars, platters and baskets.
Flea markets and thrift stores are also a great resource of silver trays, bowls and dishes that will add an elegant touch to your desk.
Organizing Tip#2: Organize From the Floor Up
The floor space under your desk or next to it is often unused. This valuable space can help you stay organized if put to use in the right way. Stack decorative boxes or lidded baskets under or to the side of your desk. Use them to hold extra printer paper, notebooks or other large office supplies that would normally sit on the top of your desk. If the space allows, build a shelf under the desk to hold file and magazine boxes which you can easily reach when needed.
Organizing Tip#3: Keep your projects Close to Keep you on Track
One of the best and most stylish ways to set up function and organization in your office is by incorporating a decorative bulletin/inspiration board. The board becomes a great place to hang to-do list, materials for projects in progress and inspirational photos. Incorporate a bulletin board that coordinates with your décor for added style! Even in a limited space, you can make a bulletin board would for you.
A final note on organizing…be creative! I love this idea of using a picture frame and a piece of fabric to create a desktop organization station! The link to the original source is not working but it looks like a pretty simple DIY!
I’d love to know if you have a favorite organizing tip for your home office so please leave a comment and share!
