How To Organize a Home Office

Updated: Jan 27

My client Danielle has her office in her living room/kitchen area; needless to say, the space is tight and not functional for her workload of work and school. BUT, with a bit of creative thinking and taking advantage of the vertical space, we can solve Danielle's pain points:

  • Not enough workspace area

  • Lack of storage for supplies and school/work materials

  • Lots of clutter and piles

  • No organization system for paperwork

  • Minimal style and cohesion

The main transformation starts with Danielle's desk. First, we increased the workspace by SEVERAL inches. Next, we added more storage, including a filing cabinet and a rolling cart. Additionally, we incorporated organizing solutions like magazine files, bins with lids and labels, pegboards, and drawer organizers. The best part is the decorative elements that highlight Danielle's interests and personality, like putting her Taylor Swift albums in frames.
