How To Home Office

Do you work from home? Do you have a study at home where you escape to dive into your favorite novel after a long day? Maybe you like to write? Regardless of how you use your home office, you want it to be as comfortable as possible. If you’re working from home, you need the space to create a productive environment and atmosphere. Here are two helpful tips that will turn your home office into a more productive and more relaxing place that you will look forward to spending time in.

Find The Right Desk

Regardless the size of your home office, finding the right desk to match the space and the purpose that you intend to use it for is essential. Instead of a large, bulky desk that takes up a ton of unnecessary space in your office, try utilizing a modern, slender desk. Empty space is in! Less is more. Think about what you are needing to accomplish when you are sitting at your desk. It may be brainstorming. It may be document scanning and editing. You may need space for a computer, maybe not. You should pick out your office desk after truly considering what purpose it will serve.

Moreover, if you are able to utilize a more compact, modern style desk, you’ll feel less cramped in your office. Another rule of thumb is to never leave your desk after you are done working without clearing off the unnecessary items. This could be extra paper, notebooks, books, a computer, and so much more. You will feel far less motivated and productive when you sit down to a cluttered and obtuse desk in comparison to a clean desk. That leads us into the next tip – organization.


As we mentioned earlier, organization is essential. It’s time to go through the files from 2009 that are still in your filing cabinet in the corner of your office collecting dust. The more clutter that you can dispose of or recycle, the more space that you will have to organize the files that are current and important for right now. After you have decluttered your home office, it’s time to focus in on stepping up your organization game. For example, there are tons of cute under desk storage bins that are super helpful when organizing your office. You can also install shelving on the walls of your office that match your style and personality. Remember the filing cabinet that we talked about? Take a closer look to see what of those files can be scanned electronically to create a digital copy that can be stored in multiple ways on multiple devices. As you tackle these organizational tips, you’ll notice that your office will feel larger and less busy. Good luck!
