Need help with home office

I work from home as a florist and wedding decor person. My office is really full and I am forced to store fabrics on cartons and boxes on the floor. How can I create storage up and be able to accommodate clients making the place look tidy. My wall length is 3.30 by 2.71metres. Any suggestions?

I've got a couple ideas for you, but a few questions first....

Can you install new flooring or install fixtures on the wall? Also, is this space your work space, or just to be used for client meetings and paperwork?

For large items that you only access when you have a delivery to a client you need an outside storage building. Plenty of built-ins and a filing system for your records and idea source books is needed. Search the box above under Photos for craft room and you'll see solutions that you can incorporate. The room must be dedicated and outfitted as a serious business venture! If you do live flowers, you need a place for the refrigerator. If silks only, have large plastic storage boxes filled by type - roses, daisies, greenery, etc. Might decorate the room with a bit of wedding flair.

Am looking for a way to incorporate storage space as I have more fabrics that can't fit in the provided space. As for the flooring, it will be my next project once I finish working on how to incorporate storage into the workspace.

Here is a great storage idea and a way to show off your past work to new clients. You can buy it at Ikea. Also, make a desk using file cabinets as the base. Keeps your paperwork close and takes up less space.
