Does your home offer a room for an office but you aren’t sure how to tackle it? 2016 is here and it’s time we got our home offices into tiptop shape! STAGED is here to help you do just that.
First its best to Purge & Prioritize. Start by doing a major overhaul of your office den. Don’t leave any drawer un-emptied. Take a look at every item and throw away anything that will not help you in the following year.
Now that you only have necessary items in your home office, it’s time to narrow things down even further. Which items you actually use on a daily basis? These can stay on the top of your desk or in your desk drawers.
Set Boundaries. Set boundaries for yourself when it comes to your work and home life. Do not bring your job into the rest of your house and vice versa. This will help you to keep unnecessary clutter, like food dishes or any random items, from entering your workspace.
Make Over & Optimize With Furniture. Now its time for the fun stuff. Give your office a mini makeover with designs that are efficient and stylish. Purchase desk organizers for your table top and designate pens, pencils, and small office accessories for each container. STAGED loves clean-lined pieces with built-in storage and furniture that can be tucked away when more space is needed.
And last but not least, make cleaning a habit. This will mostly likely be the hardest task to re-doing your office space. Concentrate on making it a habit to clean up after yourself every day. Put organizing time into your schedule so that it becomes an easy routine. File away any and all papers, put all your tools back in their places, and even make sure to push in your chair. Giving yourself this routine will keep your office tidy all year long, and will allow for continuous enhanced productivity.
Make your office den a room that adds value to your home!
