Optimize Your Home Office


To get the most out of your home office, you need to first determine how your office will serve you and your family’s needs. Make a list of the room’s purposes and rank them in order of importance.

Ideas include:

  • Conduct work from home
  • Pay bills or reconcile bank and credit statements
  • Check email, Facebook, or conduct research on the Internet
  • Work on memorabilia projects
  • Store your filing system for documents such as medical receipts or tax information
  • Store scrapbooking and craft supplies
  • Store School Papers
  • Store mom or dad’s books
  • Store DVDs or CDs

Consider what furniture or other large items are no longer relevant to your new purpose for the room and remove them. Select new furniture you need to achieve your new goals for your home office.

Now you are ready to follow the S.T.E.P.S

1) Sort into categories

2) Treasure what counts

3) Establish homes for items

4) Plan your container strategy

5) Start new habits

No project is too big or too small for S.T.E.P.S. They will always help get and keep you moving in the right direction.


In a study conducted by Knoll Workplace Research, they found at least 70 percent of the business professionals surveyed agreed on four characteristics that would have increase productivity. In order of importance, these were:

  • Climate control
  • Better storage space for work-related items
  • The ability to organize and store technology
  • Quiet space
