Light Up Your Work Space
A bulky desk lamp takes up precious space on your compact desk. Consider splurging on a compact lamp to match. Choose a lamp that clips to the side of your desk to free up work space, or go for a light that can bend and twist to give you lighting wherever you need it.
A messy desktop is the enemy of a productive built-in work space. Keep your office supplies in their place with pencil holders, upright file holders, document trays and desktop organizers. Your desk should only hold supplies you use on a daily basis; the rest can find their way to a nearby shelf or storage box.
Stay On Track
Whether you have a fold-up desk or a walk-in closet space, a built-in home office is usually too cramped for standard storage. Make use of vertical space with wall organizers for your documents and a bulletin board for your daily notes and reminders. These handy tools can keep all your most important notes and papers within eyesight —all while removing desk clutter.
Store & Display
For a built-in office in an awkward space such as a hallway, remember that careful planning is key. Measure the area to make sure you have enough room to pass by when your desk, office chair and storage units are in place. If you’re short on space, choose mobile office furniture so you can move it out of the way when needed.
Make the best use of your space by thinking in terms of multi-function. Several functions combined into one easy to use machine will easily save you space,time and use of power. Tie in devices that keep you connected and you'll be using your space more wisely and likely getting a lot more bang for your buck.
