6 Steps to Create a Productive Workspace at Home

6 Steps to Create a Productive Workspace at Home | Multitasky

Your workspace is everything when it comes to productivity. Here our favorite ways to create that workplace oasis that you're craving. And yes, it 100% starts with cute desk accessories

1. Consider Your Work Needs.

Before you choose a workspace, consider the type of work you’ll be doing. Are you sketching, building spreadsheets, handling clerical tasks, or taking business calls? Once you answer that question, think about the materials and storage space necessary to do your work efficiently.

2. Designate a Specific Work Zone.

It’s easy to jump from spot to spot at home and get distracted by counter clutter, home responsibilities, and not feeling in the mood to work. That’s why establishing a dedicated work area is crucial to your success.

3. Work With What You Have.

If you don’t have a spare room to transform into a home office — or even space for a full desk — get creative. Try using an old armoire as a makeshift office. “When it’s open you are at work, when it’s closed you enjoy an organized, attractive space for other uses.”

You could also use a portion of your cabinets to store your laptop, papers, and other work materials. Simply pull work materials out when you need them.

4. Choose a Filing Method.

Even if most of your work is online, it’s still a good idea to have a limited amount of storage space for papers that inevitably pile up and crowd your work area.

5. Prioritize Comfort.

Turn your work area into a place you love.

If it is a room, consider painting it a color you like and make sure there is good lighting.

Other options: brighten your space with greenery, hang a favorite piece of art, set up speakers or bring in your humidifier. Your work area sets the mood for getting things done, so you want to make it a comfortable, inspiring space.

6. Keep it Organized.

Reserve your desk space for everyday supplies, like your planner, pen, or paperclips.

We suggest corralling loose wires, cords, and tech devices into a technology box for easy access, and setting up a drop zone for papers you need to file. A discreet wall pocket or file organizer will keep your desk clear.
