Over the past months many of us have had to adapt to working from home and most of us have realised that you simply cannot be productive and do your best work when your workspace is cluttered and disorganised. From picking the perfect desk to making sure it is organised, we have compiled some tried and tested methods on making your home office more productive and pleasant.

Pick the perfect desk and chair

In order to be more productive, the perfect desk and chair combo is key. When acquiring a desk for your office you must take a couple of things into account, including size requirements, storage options and durability. Once you have picked your surface it is important to invest in seating that will have your back. We know how tempting it can be to just use your living room couch as a seating options but investing in a chair that is good for your back and posture might be a better long-term move. Sitting up straight is better for your posture, breathing and productivity, so it is definitely worth it to perfect your at home set-up for better work performance.

Organise your cables (or better yet, go wireless)

Cables are one of the things that can make your desk instantly messy and cluttered. Organising cables isn’t hard and there are lots of DIY options to make it easy and fuss-free for you to better organise all those loose ends. For an even neater experience there is always the options to go wireless, a wireless mouse and keyboard can instantly make your desk look as neat as a pin.

File papers on a regular basis

Stray papers are one of the first things that can clog up your desk and make your workspace seem messy. The best way to deal with heaps of paper is to file them away on a regular basis. Choose a day of the week, where your work slows down a bit and try to file all these loose items. In the meantime, you can make use of in and out trays to keep the papers organised before you get to filing them. As you file each week, it is the perfect opportunity to archive some older paperwork that you do not need anymore and prepare to store them in a storage unit of your choosing.

Tidy your workspace before and after you start work

Each morning it is a good idea to organise your workspace before you start working. This creates a clutter-free space to ensure optimal productivity for the workday ahead. Always have a trash can nearby, one that you can reach from your desk, close enough that you don’t have to get up. This will make it easy for you to instantly dispose of papers and other trash instead of just leaving it on your desk. It is also equally important to tidy up your workspace at the end of the day. File all your papers in the trays that you have set up, throw away trash and take your coffee mug back to the kitchen.

If you are finding that your office space is being taken over by work files, documents and other items why not consider storing them! Have a look at our different storage units that we have to offer and if you like what you see, be sure to get in touch.
