446 Asian Home Office Products

With the mounds of desk accessories we tend to accumulate over the years, it’s easy for a home office to get a little out of control. Desks become crowded with staplers, pens and calculators, while file cabinets and bookshelves stock their fair share of important papers and favorite novels. Because it's such a drop center, more than a few things can get lost in the shuffle. A well-organized asian office — one with plenty of bookcases, folders and pencil holders — will ensure that every item has a place, and in turn lead to a stress-free workweek. Avoid the hassle by following these helpful organizing tips. More

Take the time to create a comprehensive filing system.

A paper collection is one of those things that can easily get out of hand. Instead of trying to find a specific bill in that mound of paper, buy a filing cabinet, hanging file folders and labels, and create files with specific subjects for every item you need to keep. Once that's done, you won’t have to deal with that paper search again!

Buy a calendar and use it.

Staying organized is key, and there is no better tool than a desk calendar or planner. Write down family events, doctor’s appointments and trips to ensure you stay on schedule. Place important events on a bulletin board or dry-erase board so the whole household can stay in tune. Keep yourself in check by creating to-do lists for smaller, everyday tasks.

Avoid having a junk drawer.

When you’re in a rush, it’s easy to stuff that tape dispenser in the closest drawer, regardless of where it really belongs. As this happens over and over, a once-organized desk can turn into a disheveled mess. Instead of creating a junk drawer, use drawer organizers and plastic compartments to ensure that each office item has a place — and that it always goes back there. Next time, you’ll be able to find those sticky notes right away, instead of scouring piles and piles of office supplies without any luck.

Use a bookcase (or two) to store trinkets.

Desk real estate is valuable, so even though that asian picture frame, stuffed animal or figurine might look cute next to your laptop, it likely takes up too much workspace. Although bookshelves are primarily used for storing books, they’re also a great place for displaying mementos and accessories. Leave the desk for things you need, such as your computer, printer and desk lamp.

Invest in a sturdy, storage-filled desk.

When you have lots of supplies to house, it goes without saying that your desk should have plenty of drawers and cabinets. When making a purchase, think about what style of desk will work for you. Bow-front executive desks and U-shaped or L-shaped desks will give you plenty of room to spare, while hutch desks, secretary desks and corner desks still provide some storage while fitting nicely in small spaces.

Wrangle in those office electronics.

The home office is a hub for every plugged-in electronic gadget imaginable; with printer cords, computer cords, lamp cords and chargers, it is easy to let small electronics take over. To keep those cords in check, strap them down with a cable organizer, such as a cable box or strap. Avoid plug confusion by using cord labels to differentiate your desktop computer’s plug from your shredder’s.

Think about comfort and design.

Whether you use your home office as an all-day workspace or a weekends-only haven, making the spot feel more like home is a must. Sure, it might not seem like much, but investing in an ergonomic desk chair, a few fun asian knickknacks and a well-placed task light can make your day (and maybe your work) more enjoyable.
