Plan your home office storage

I promise you that we have seen ALOT of home offices. So many, in fact, that we feel qualifies to dispense a few tips to follow if you are setting up your home office...Here we go...


  1. Plan your storage. It could be that you are running a 100% digital office and don't need any storage for paper files etc. That's great but whatever you do - plan your storage requirements from the start. If you don't need much - you don't need much but we have seen some many beautiful new home office ruined within 2 weeks by the clutter that comes from not planning for storage. If you've got masses of paper then filing cabinets are best , books or background files ? Go for shelving perhaps. It doesn't have to be flash but have somewhere to put things away at the end of your day ?

  2. Go small. If you think you need 1800 x 800 desktop go for the smaller size. A small , well organized desktop is way better than a large cluttered one. It forces you to use your available space well. If you feel you are short of desk top space - consider a monitor arm to increase your available space. Get a desk and chair that fit each other. What I mean by this is make sure they are adjustable enough for you to be able to sit at the right height ? Also that you can store your chair easily when it isn't in use ? A good chair doesn't necessarily have to be hugely adjustable but one of the two (desk or chair) should be.

  3. Get a desk and chair that fit each other. What I mean by this is make sure they are adjustable enough for you to be able to sit at the right height ? Also that you can store your chair easily when it isn't in use ? A good chair doesn't necessarily have to be hugely adjustable but one of the two (desk or chair) should be.

  4. Have an overflow space. This is a space that you go to when you want a change of scenery. You want to change the scenery occasionally so find a nice place for a temporary break in another room.

  5. Get a "Do not disturb" sign. This is SO important. Establish the rules for the people living with you. When the sign is up - you are working or in a meeting and it is non-negotiable. You are NOT available.
