Whether you work from home every day or use your home office for a place where you can close the door and get away, your space needs to be both welcoming and organized. Unfortunately, home offices are some of the most neglected spaces in our homes! Messy unorganized spaces are not conducive to working, whether for business or pleasure, which is why you need to get creative with your home office storage! To help update your space, the Cabinet Chic has put together some of our designer’s favorite ways to stay organized while working from home. Let’s get to work!
Start With Your Desk
Your space should inspire you and reflect your personality. Decorate accordingly. No dreary cubicles here! Choose a desk that is functional, yet beautiful; make sure that it has ample storage in case you need it! We love under the desk cabinets and drawers because they get the clutter off of the top of your desk, and out of sight! Tip: Annoyed by tangled cords? Finding furniture that features a built-in power source, such as desks with outlets and USB ports are a great option!
Use Wall Space
Wall storage is a great way to go, especially for those working with a small space. Between open shelving, use peg, cork, or magnetic boards to store documents, photos, etc. We like pegboards for a modern home office; you can attach various shelves, planters, holders and hangers for an everchanging look. If open shelves aren’t your style, you can also add custom millwork for a super, sleek look that’s a backdrop for a gorgeous gallery wall.[caption id="attachment_1174" align="aligncenter" width="640"]

Built-in bookcases and cabinets are an amazing way to decorate and keep things organized! C & C Cabinets can help design and build home office storage of any size that will fit your unique requirements. Whether your space is big or small, built-ins that are made just for you can make the most of the available space in a room!Desks can even be crafted and designed into the built-in for ultimate functionality. A combination of both open shelving (which can be used to display pretty trinkets and books) and cupboards that hide cords and clutter is ideal.
Repurpose + Upcycle
A fun way to add some character to your space is to use unconventional pieces of furniture for your desk or storage. Mismatched pieces can add charm to a utilitarian space like an office.Tip: Repurpose flea market dishes as tabletop storage. Put rubber bands in a teacup, or use mason jars for pens and pencils![caption id="attachment_1175" align="aligncenter" width="415"]
For small spaces, it is best to make use of available vertical space. Floating shelves are a minimal way to organize reading materials, family photos, and other decor.
Going vertical helps eliminate clutter!
A hutch style desk with built-in shelves and cubbies is another great way to save space and stay organized. Worried about a cluttered desktop? Make sure you have a drawer for vertical file folders. These are especially useful for organizing important documents and mail.
Back of Door Storage
If you can’t fit large cabinets for storage, then don’t forget about the back of the door! If your desk is near a door, the back of the door is prime real estate for office supply storage. Use a hanging shoe organizer to sort cords, small desk supplies, and tools. Redoing your office and can’t find a desk that’s just right? Call our design team; we don’t just build custom cabinetry!
