Small home office organization and storage tips
Organization is key to being productive in a small home office space. Here’s some small office organization ideas:
A filing cabinet can serve several purposes. It can store your files, and it can also store your tools and supplies. One idea is to have one or two filing cabinet drawers that store your files, then use the remainder of drawers for storing cords, paper supplies, printer supplies, staplers, hole punches, paper slices, and other business tools.
Shelves are important if your business requires storage of books and other tools that are too big to fit in drawers, or that you need easy access to on a regular basis. Bookshelves are ideal as they are usually compact and can store heavy items, as opposed to wall mounted shelves.
If your space requires you to have a mobile small home office, having rolling cabinets can be useful because they can move with you around your home. A rolling cabinet can store all of your supplies, such as pens, pencils, paper, staplers, hole punches, cords, and even your laptop computer or devices.
Another option for storing office supplies is a storage tower. This type of tower is not mobile, but is very efficient for storing a lot of business items in a small, compact space.
If you’re working with a small space, having a table that can collapse when you’re not working can help you save space, but also provide enough space for you to work when needed. Drop leaf tables, or even a folding table that can be stored flat are options.
Another storage idea is using bins with lids. Large bins can hold everything you need for a specific project, or can be a designated space for business tools. Small bins can hold small items, such as pens, pencils, paper clips etc. If you’re working with a really tiny space, having bins is ideal because when you start your work day you can simple remove the bins for their storage space, open them up and set up your work space. At the end of your work day you can easily place everything back into the bins and close the lid. This helps keep clutter down and everything you need in one, easy-to-find place.
