A record number of people are now working from home and that means more of us than ever before are having to accommodate office space within our homes.
For many of us, that means getting creative and utilising whatever space is available – from transforming spare bedrooms and garages into office space to adapting utility rooms and even storage cupboards and wardrobes.
If you are currently working in a small space and need office storage ideas for small spaces, you have certainly landed in the right place. Here’s our guide to 10 clever office storage ideas to maximise your home office space:
Storage boxes are the perfect way to neatly store away a wide range of different items including important documents, stationery and any other office essentials. Strong and sturdy, boxes are also incredibly easy to stack, allowing you to optimise the space that you are working with. Just remember to label them so you know where everything is.
Although many people are working mostly online now, if you still get or send out mail and you’re working in a small space, a mail organiser is a great way to stay on top of your mail and minimise clutter.
If you’re working with a small space, one of the best ways to optimise storage is to utilise all of your available floor to ceiling space.
Shelving is a great way to do this. Providing an area for books, filing and anything else that you need to hand during your working day, integrating shelves in your office will instantly create more space. Shelves are also perfect for displaying decorative items too.
Customised built-in desks
Sometimes it’s difficult to find suitable furniture to fit a space. This is why customised built-in desks are a great option for maximising storage in small spaces. A customised desk is not only built to fit the space you are working with but you can also opt to have built-in shelving, bookcases and anything else that will help you to save space.
At the same time, when you’re kitting out your home office, make sure you look for multi-purpose furniture. A desk that offers storage, a dual-purpose coffee table or multi-functioning shelving can all help enhance the space available.
Use your wall space
A great way to keep clutter at bay is by making use of wall décor and shelving. From floating shelves and wire boards through to box shelves and hooks, there are lots of ways to make use of your available wall space.
Locker storage is not only perfect for creating space in small offices, but it can also provide a safe and secure spot for you to keep important or confidential data in the home environment.
Invest in a pegboard
Pegboards are not only super cool but they are also extremely versatile – providing a unique storage solution that will ensure you always have everything you need to hand.
Whether you use it to hang stationary or important pieces of information such as passwords, a pegboard will look great in your home office.
A home office cabinet
Home office cabinets are ideal for providing effective storage space for a wide range of office essentials. And as you can put everything away at the end of the working day, a cabinet will ensure that your space is neat, tidy and clutter-free.
A fold-down desk is a fantastic option for small rooms and can be folded away at the end of the day and stored neatly. This is a great idea if you have been using a pop up office and at the end of the working day need your living space back again!
