Hang bulletin and dry-erase boards. Office life is full of important papers and quick ideas, and you want accessible places to put them before they escape into the ether. Instead of cluttering your desk with papers and throwing ideas on easy-to-lose Post-Its, do yourself a favor and put a bulletin board and dry-erase board within easy reach.
De-clutter. Start things off on the right foot by removing everything that you don't use. Throw away things you haven’t touched in a year, and file away important papers or items sitting in piles throughout your space. You will be able to tackle your workload much more efficiently in a clean office.
Let in the light. Sunlight is much softer and calmer than fluorescent, and is said to help create a more productive workplace. Try to move your desk as close to windows as possible so you can take advantage of the natural light during the day.
Turn your desk into a décor. Not every home comes with an extra room that can be turned into a office, leading some to add a desk to a living room or bedroom. If that’s the case, consider swapping out your desk for one that blends into the room’s current scheme. This unit boasts furniture-like shelves decorated with interesting knickknacks, which distracts the eye from the hardworking function of the desk.
