If there is one room in the house that can fall apart quickly, it is the headquarters. This is a magnet for all types of paper, even in the digital age. Electronic devices and cables can accumulate in stacks. Books can be scattered in stacks. Overall, many home workspaces can use assistance with home office organizations.
Fortunately, there are many ways to organize a functional and stylish home office. From the option of organizing a full wall to small ways to keep the drawers organized to complete the organizational system, read on to find out how to finally get the home office in shape.
1. Floating Cubbies
The photo above shows a full table and organizational system that can be added to the wall using vertical metal bars. One good idea from this system is floating the ball on the table. Piles of paper are usually the first things to pile up around the office. So cubbies are a great way to have a place for all the stacks of paper to go, while being able to label what each cubby contains. And having a system where both sides are on the wall means more table space that can be used. If you have problems with random piles of paper, this is for you.
2. Full-Wall Shelving for Home Office Organization
Another way to finally get that home office set up is to go for a full-wall rack system like the office area in the photo above. This allows you to keep everything from the floor, which can be a problem for many areas of the office. Without a full-wall rack, it’s tempting to arrange things into a pile of floors and pretend as if this is a functioning level of organization.
With full-wall shelves, you can also organize items more easily. And it’s a good choice if you have a lot of books that need to be managed. Plus, a shelf around a computer means things that are easy to find at a glance while working.
3. Plastic Bins
Often overlooked as a cheap solution, plastic trash cans can be a good route to home office organizations. Trash with sliding drawers can be stacked with each other to make as much storage as needed. Larger bins fit under tables and tablespace. And smaller, clear trays are a good way to see what is in each tray
The photo above shows that you can save in a plastic trash can without sacrificing style. White and clear bins really create a clean aesthetic in the room with an already bright color scheme. Creative lamps, rugs and wall hangings help add a touch of style to the space.
4. Complete Organizational Systems
Then there is the complete readymade option. The home office organization system above is from The Container Store. Complete shelf and drawer design mounted to the wall via a Horizontal Track Top.
Clean white design like this also functionally fits into any home style. Because it arranges everything that clings to the wall, this is a good choice for smaller spaces. The open shelf design also means you can find everything you need right away.
This particular model is made of epoxy-bonded steel construction. This is made for 124-inch wall space, but a solution can be found for different spaces.
5. Think Compartmentalization
Another option is to go for spaces that feature different workstations, like in the photo above. A design like this can work well if you run a home business where you have employees coming into your home office. In that case, you’ll want to look for desk designs with multiple workspaces. That way, everyone has their own space and can have their desk the way they want it.
Even if you’re just sharing the room with multiple family members, your home office organization can still benefit from different workstations. Another idea is using corner desks for fitting multiple work areas into one room.
