tips for organizing your home office

Deirdre Brennan - Tuesday, March 27, 2012



The time has come to reorganize my working space so that it not only functions more effectively but is inviting to spend time in.  I am particularly lucky to have taken over the room with the best view of our garden!! I overlook magnificent 80 year old maples and elms which I expect any day will start to turn for autumn and put on the usual spectacular display of colour.

I have to say that I do relish the thought of those bookshelves full of coordinating files and binders.....magazines perfectly filed in date have the picture!!

However before I get to the fun bit there are certain tasks which I guess take priority -

create a clean space to work on by filing into binders, storage boxes or magazine holders any superfluous documents, stationary, pens, pencils etc 

simple document trays allow you to keep in sight current items that you are dealing with, working on or referring to

if you are a visual person, a white board or planner would be helpful on a nearby wall beside or in front of your work space

assess whether additional shelving is necessary...those piles on the floor just don't work

if your desk chair isn't as good as it could be now is the time to start looking and trying out new spend a lot of your day in this chair so it isn't worth creating posture problems

good lighting is essential and task lighting is easily introduced with an adjustable lamp




Now is the time to head off to buy those gorgeous binders and boxes.....try    Kikki K, or the gorgeous Semikolon stationary.  Filing can be fun if you have all the appropriate tools.

An ordered and calm space can only inspire creative thinking!!!
