Many people let their office space become cluttered and unorganized. The office is a very important part of most people’s lives as many of us spend the majority of our time there. A cluttered office can negatively affect your mood, productivity and health. By organizing your office furniture, storage and work space in general, you would be creating a more pleasant and productive work environment for yourself.
It is important to note that you need to get permission from management or the landlord should you wish to make any big changes such as putting up a wall mounted shelf or painting the office space. You should also find out if it would be possible for you to access the office in the evening or over a weekend as this would be the best time for undertaking a project such as this.
Clearing Everything Out
The organizing would start by clearing everything out of the space. As you do this you should sort everything into groups. These would include groups for things that can be thrown away, things that can be given away and things that need to go back into the office. This is a really great way of eliminating a lot of the unnecessary clutter.
The things that are going to stay in the office can then be sorted in further groups. Examples of these would be office furniture, equipment, files and books. This way, when you do pack everything back into the office you will be able to make things that are used frequently easily accessible and things that are not can be stored out of the way.
Now that everything has been cleared out of the office space, you can now give the place a thorough cleaning. A clean office is essential if you want your work space to be healthy and productive. This is also a great time to fix anything that needs to be repaired. This includes things like light bulbs, cracks in the walls as well as any plumbing problems.
Your New Office
You would put up any shelves and paint the space before you begin to move anything back into your office. The first things that need to go back would be the office furniture and any bulky equipment. This way, you can play around with the furniture arrangement to find the one that works best in the space.
You can keep files or notes in themed storage boxes on the shelves as this serves as very useful storage as well as being decorative. You can add other accessories to the room as well. These include things such as plants, art work, throws and scatter cushions. Plants are a really great option because they make the air in the office a lot healthier simply by being there. By putting some of your individual style into the room, you would be a lot more comfortable in it and as a result, you would be a lot more productive and happy when you are in your office.
