The essentials of a home office are: desk, chair, filing cabinet and a bookshelf. While you should have comfortable and appealing furniture, how you position them in your office is very important. If possible,
- Place the desk so it faces the door. However, if it is a small room use a corner desk and place it near the window to have a view of the surroundings.
- For the filing cabinet and the bookshelf, label all the files and organize the books in alphabetical order on the basis of their titles or name of authors.
- Organize the drawers according to how much you need the tools inside them. This way you will reach the tools that you need quickly.
Regardless of the amount of space in your home, you are going to need more because of the anticipated expansion and increase in the amount of office items and supplies. Hence, there is a need for you to create extra space and storage, store the items logically and always take time to put things in order every day, to save the time you will use finding them. Therefore, make everything in the home office serve more than a single purpose, including furniture, bookshelves and drawers. Make your cabinet to hold supplies and divide your drawers with dividers and store items in them in a logical way. Furthermore, store extra supplies, products and stationery on the shelves and bookcases in the office. There is a place for everything, hence place everything in the office where they best fit.
