Even a home office needs effective storage.

Posted by Closets & Cabinetry by Closet City on 12/18/18 4:30 PM

If you work from home, you're able to bypass the stress of commuting to the office, you save on transportation expenses, and maybe even get to hang out all day in your PJ's. However, just because your home office atmosphere is more comfortable than a traditional office, it doesn't mean you don't need a well-thought-out work space and practical storage.

The couch is not an office, nor is the dining room table. Avoid “setting up shop” in an area that the rest of your family uses on a daily basis, especially if you have papers, electronics, or craft materials that you’d prefer not to get wet, crumpled, have food dribbled on, etc. A home office needs a clear work area, and that means providing adequate space for computers and related equipment, as well as convenient locations for reference materials, file drawers, desk supplies and paper.

When customizing your work space, take into consideration such things as the placement of computers, wiring, and file drawers. Make sure you have enough room to roll your chair around and to fully access drawer contents. Move things around initially to determine the best work flow in your allowable space.

Make a small room fit more. A stand-alone desk and separate shelving won’t offer nearly as much storage potential as a built-in office. Plentiful storage space in the form of floor-to-ceiling shelves, file drawers, and upper cabinets keep your room looking neat while providing a home for all sorts of books, supplies, and paperwork.

To truly make the most of working from home, you need to be productive. Having optimal work areas and storage space will help create the professional ambiance needed to inspire you to work. However, it's also good to have a place to ponder your next big project. So set up your work space to take advantage of any windows in the room. A window seat can provide not only a spot to sit and think with a cup of coffee, but also include a couple of drawers or cabinets underneath for additional storage.
