Place It Within a Bookshelf
A bookcase can add personality to your home office space and help keep you organized if you have books, office supplies, and even plants or decor. It’s also a great place to put your printer. And depending on where your desk is, you can put the bookcase nearby for easy access.
If you have particularly wide or deep bookshelves, too, you can even conceal your printer if it’s not particularly attractive. Wedge it between books or place some plants in front of the printer to keep it hidden away until you need it.
This option is great if you want to reach your printer easily but don’t use it so much that you need to have it within arm’s length at all times.
Put It in a Rolling Filing Cabinet
A file cabinet can also be a convenient storage space for your printer. Rolling filing cabinets, in particular, have pretty deep cabinets that can fit a smaller-sized printer and a flat surface on top where you can try to place a larger printer. The best part is that a rolling filing cabinet is mobile, so you can move it where you need it.
For example, if you know you’ll be printing multiple documents throughout the day, you can roll the cabinet over closer to the desk, so you don’t have to keep getting up to print something. Then, you can put it back in a corner when you’re done.
You can even store your printer in a stationery filing cabinet and close the drawer so that it remains hidden and out of the way whenever you don’t need it. However, you can make your selection based on how frequently you’ll need the printer.
Put It on a Wall Shelf
Another excellent storage space for your printer is a wall shelf. A wall shelf can help you get your printer out of the way — while also allowing you to decide on the number of shelves you want and the right height to use your printer comfortably. You can even use the shelf to hold other decorations, accessories, or office supplies, giving yourself more storage. And since a wall shelf doesn’t typically take up as much space like a bookshelf, it can be a good choice for those with smaller home offices.
This option, similar to the bookshelf, works well for those needing an accessible printer but who may not require it to be within arm’s reach at all times.
