With our home office tips and desk organisation ideas, you’ll be well on your way to conquering your to do list. Read our top tips on how to create the perfect home office that is chic, stylish and organised, no matter how much space you have.
Plan Your Day
Keeping a regular schedule and planning your day out is a must. Try and plan your days by mornings and afternoons so that each task feels a little less daunting. Not only will you feel a sense of achievement but this will also help you keep on top of your to do list and enable you to plan your day accordingly. Our Powder Blue To Do List Jotter is ideal for keeping track of your daily goals and the matching Bright Ideas Stationery Kit is great for making quick notes and writing reminders. If scribbling and doodling is more your thing then you’ll be spoilt for choice with our selection of notebooks. Ideal for taking call and revision notes, you’re one step closer to having the perfect home office set up.
Keep Your Space Organised
Keeping an organised space or desk is easier said than done, especially if you’re working from home with multiple people, as you may find you have to move from room to room throughout the day. Even if you have a dedicated home office just for your use, keeping it tidy can feel overwhelming. However an organised space means an organised mind and with a little decluttering, you too could have an Instagram-worthy perfect home office. Our number one desk organisation tip is to keep your desk space as minimal as possible. Remove any clutter and just keep your essentials such as your laptop, notebook, pen, phone and a drink. A great way to keep your desk essentials organised, especially if you work from different rooms in the house is to use one of our pouches or pencil cases. Our Leopard Print Pencil Case is a must for storing all your pens and pencils, whereas our Shine Bright Pouch is ideal for holding your notebooks and any other essentials.
Not only are our desk organisation ideas useful for creating the perfect home office, but they also make it that much easier to tidy the work away at the end of each day. When you’re working from home it can be hard to switch off and you may find that you end up working after hours purely because there’s fairly little that separates your home and your workspace. By tidying your desk away or closing the door to your home office you should find that you have a better work-life balance. You should also try and take time for yourself throughout the day. It's important to take care of your well-being by taking regular breaks and not working through your lunch. Step away from your laptop and make yourself a hot drink or step outside for a bit of fresh air and go back to work feeling refreshed and vitalised.
Create a Zen Atmosphere
Creating a zen workspace will help you stay focused and keep stress at bay. Try to work in a room with plenty of light as this will ensure you feel energised and ready to take on the day. Lighting is key to creating a productive work environment that’s as bright and brilliant as you are. Let as much natural light into the room as possible then add a calming accent with one of our scented candles. Not only will this help create a zen home office atmosphere but they’ll also make your home smell amazing. The combination of light and beautifully scented fragrance will create an inviting home office space that you’ll want to work in.
