Working from home this past year and a half has really taught us that a home office is important! Having a space for you to be able to focus, get work done and be productive is key. We also recognize this may be a shared space with your family. So we have put together some our go to applications to reorganize an office.
Sometimes just moving items into a new space allows for your creativity to start rolling. When we rearrange a space we are cognizant to make the space accessible and functional. It also helps that when we rearrange a room we 1) see the space in a new light and 2) find that pen hidden behind a desk 🙂
We understand this space may be more than an office – maybe its a playroom after 5 p.m. or part of your mudroom. With that in mind, setting up a system and designating a space for each function is important. We love to see each family member have a space – maybe that is a bin, a shelf, a drawer – labeled for them and a place they can put their things. With multiple people using a space, labels remind everyone where they can find items and where to put them back 😉 To improve organization, you need a system where everything has a place and to build habits to return items back to their place. Then your space will be EASY to tidy and over time the system will become a habit!
The entire room rearrangement does not need to be done in a day. We recommend making a priority list – what can I do in this space so that I can be able to work in it tomorrow? Can I break up my projects over the course of a weekend so that it isn’t overwhelming? Can I get assistance to support me on a major project? These are all great questions to ask yourself. Know that it can be a process – and sometimes that’s a good thing! You can make the space evolve to serve you.
