It’s time to organise your work space!
The festive season is becoming a distant memory with 2020 now in full swing. For many, decluttering is on the top of the new year’s resolution list. While we naturally link decluttering with the stuff in our homes, it’s equally important to organise our work spaces so as to be as productive as possible.
There are dozens of quotes about ‘clean space, clear mind’, and for good reason. Many studies show that working in a minimalist, decluttered environment is beneficial to your ability to focus, which means being more productive.
Where do you start though? It’s easier than you may think, if you follow a few basics. Here are a few tips to help you along.
Clear the room!
Don’t try to tackle the entire office area at once. Start with one area and once you’re happy, move on to the next. Of course, it may not be a whole room you are looking to declutter but simply your work desk. The same principle would apply here, so start with one draw at a time or one area of your working space before moving to the next. Keep the items you need on a daily basis, donate those that you don’t. For everything else, there’s secure self storage.
Overhead space is often ignored so look up and go vertical! Consider shelving to create more room on the floor and get those unnecessary items off your desk. There are plenty of vertical shelving options online.
Once you’ve opened up your floor space it’s time to get creative with the extra room that you now have. Multi-purpose furniture is great for both decluttering and interior design. What do we mean by multi-purpose furniture? Think ottomans, coffee tables with compartments, folding desks etc. A quick search online will provide plenty of options.
Choosing the right storage containers
Storing your items in containers is a great way to get organised while keeping them close to hand, if you have a space in which to store them (think office store room). Make sure that the containers you use are not too bulky but are sturdy enough to stack if needed. If you don’t have a store room or an area in which to keep the containers, use self storage!
