Keep an organized small office free of clutter or you can run into a problem. Whether in a home or commercial building, limited space makes it difficult to maintain a tidy work area that is attractive and free of distractions. An office area should be clearly defined visually in a house to minimize disruptions. Keep supplies handy to keep your day running smoothly in any office environment.
Instant office space
A wall shelf creates an effect of visually separating your desktop from the rest of the room. Fixing two self-supporting shelves to the wall above your desk can complete the design and provide an additional storage area. Open shelves offer ample storage space for books, manuals and publications in attractive holders. Store stationery and business cards in baskets and on shelves for easy access.
Furniture that meets dual function lets you convert a room (or corner of a room) from home office to a living space. The dining table can provide ample workspace during working hours and returns to its home use as soon as you take away your work items. TV trays or shelves can hold an inexpensive printer or act as additional workspace, turning any room into a temporary office.
Office on wheels
Use mobile furniture to instantly turn a room into office space to living space. Add wheels to carts for easy hiding after finishing the work. Use a stylish table to store office supplies at night; Wheeled shelfing can slide under a desk when not in use. An ottoman on wheels provides unseen storage and a place to raise the foot while taking business calls or reading. Rolling office furniture also makes it easier to share resources in a small office area.
A partition that provides shelving and is free standing creates a sense of privacy when you put desks into a small environment. In a home office, this type of shelving separates the workspace from the living space. The self-supporting rack may be moved if necessary. For a more permanent solution, use shelving that goes from floor to ceiling. In a non-residential office, use a cart for microwaves to create a break or lounge area. Use closed closet space to store infrequently used items and supplies.
