Working remotely is much more of a reality in 2022. With work-at-home opportunities on the rise, having an organized home office space free from distractions will help to keep you focused.
Here are five home office organizing tips that can boost your productivity and motivation.
1. Clean & Decluttered Desk
Having your desk clean and organized will help you feel more accomplished and ready to start the day.
To keep desk surfaces efficient and looking tidy, use a combo of desktop organizers. Before heading off to shop for organizing products, decide which supplies are important to stay on your desk. Having one too many items on your desk will take up valuable workspace. If you don’t think you will need to use them daily, consider storing them in a drawer.

2. Organized Office Supplies

Try not to be bothered if all items aren’t placed in organizers. Items like the hole punch, stapler and scissor are utilizing the empty spaces in the drawer.
3. Utilize Walls for Open Shelving
Look at an empty wall to increase your storage options. Adding three shelves above the printer provides plenty of storage and is the ideal spot to utilize wall space.

4. Practical Storage for Essentials
Oversized storage furniture or too many inadequate storage pieces can eat up premium office space. To function in a space that stimulates creativity and performance, there needs to be a balance between having enough breathing room and sufficient storage.
Source furniture based on what is necessary for it to store and make sure it’s sized right for the space. Take measurements and leave enough allowance to fully open drawers or move about in the space.
