Take a moment to look around your home office. Is it in working order? Do you know where everything is kept? And most of all, do you like what you see?
If you answered no to any of the above questions – you’re in the right place.
Our latest blog is here to offer you the best home office sorting advice you’ll read today! From keeping your desk in order, to styling your bookshelves, we cover it all.
Ensure your desk is both practical and stylish
With so many images floating around Instagram and Pinterest it’s easy to think that the ideal desk is bare and styled to perfection. For most people, this is unrealistic and to be honest, not the most practical way of getting things done at home!
We recommend ensuring your desk is both practical and stylish by ensuring that all your everyday items are given a home. This can include fancy jars for holding pens, nice in-trays for loose paperwork and bookends for keeping your stash of novels / notepads / inspiration books / diaries together.
Think of your bookshelves as ‘art’
It’s easy to use bookshelves as a dumping ground for everything without a home – don’t! Instead, think of your bookshelves as ‘art’ and curate them to put your best self forward.
If you have a large collection of books, consider stacking them by colour, genre or author. Additionally, archive boxes are a great way to keep bookshelves organised and stylish. These can be purchased or decorated in colours of your choice and provide a simple solution for loose items or collections you’d rather not have on display.
Don’t delay – back-up your electronic files today
If you don’t have a back-up system in place for your electronic files – today is the day to get one. Consider using an external hard drive or cloud-based storage system to ensure you don’t lose important documents to a technology failure.
Have a spare stash of pens and paper
Yes, we may live in a digital world – but there are still times when pen and paper are essential. Don’t get caught out or be unprepared for your child’s school project by keeping a stash of pens and paper in your home office. We recommend a selection of colours and sizes for paper.
Give yourself a home office treat every so often for all your hard work. Be it, a fresh bunch of flowers to brighten up your desk, or a new pack of post-it notes.
