8 home office organizing essentials

By: Cindy Jacobelli

In a home office it’s easy to let things build up. Paper, supplies and tools of the trade – they all need their place; because the key to getting things done is being organized. You want things to be in sensible, reachable spots. Easy to find, easy to get. No matter what space you’re working with, there are lots of ways to achieve this. Here are a few ideas to get you started and to help you turn your home office design into a perfectly organized oasis.

Corner hutch
Corner desks are great because they give you room to spread out. Add a hutch on top to spread up as well. It’ll give you an additional three levels of storage without taking up too much workspace real estate. Pottery Barn, $461.78.

Stylish storage bins
Depending on your line of work, you may need to store samples or excess files long term. Keep them dry and out of the way in plastic bins like these – transparent but decorative. See Jane Work, $2.49 - $7.49. office-org-bookcase.jpg
Office armoire
Sometimes a home office is no more than the extra space in the spare guest room. If that’s the case, an armoire is very useful. It has space and shelving for all the essentials and can be closed up when company arrives.  amazon.com, $99. office-org-filecabinets.jpg

Birch storage boxes

Wall mounted shelving
The nice thing about wall-mounted bookshelves is that they don’t shrink the room by taking up floor space. They provide ample room to store books, supplies and even a photo or two. They are a beautiful way to display books too. The shelves on this model are deep enough to accommodate baskets as well. West Elm, $272.41.
