What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. Discard First, Organize SecondThere’s no point in organizing stuff you won’t be keeping. And until you’ve decluttered, it’s hard to figure out the best location and storage system for the items you’ve decided to keep. So by all means, begin by eliminating things.Other long-established professional organizers follow this principle in their decluttering methods. For example, Julie Morgenstern’s formula, SPACE, stands for sort, purge, assign a home, containerize and equalize. Sara Pedersen promotes PEACE, or process and sort, edit the clutter, assign a home, containerize and label, and ensure success.
Aim for a good fit. This home office demonstrates how a good-sized work area, storage and shelves can all fit neatly in a compact footprint. The trick is to keep the desktop fairly shallow and choose a shelf-style desk, rather than a free-standing design. This makes better use of space and clears the area below for drawers. Sticking to white furniture in a white room helps reduce the visual impact of this workstation too.
