If you are like us here at Lennar, you probably spend most of your week in your office (cubicle/desk/home office). To maximize your productivity at home, it’s important to have a workspace that is not only organized but inspires you day to day. Personalizing and decluttering your space can make working a lot more pleasant and help you stay on top of your tasks. We understand that each person has a different and unique style, so we’ve came up with 5 tips that can help you customize and reorganize your office (aka your second home).
1. Find Inspiration
It is important to have a visual image of what your ideal workspace would look like. Whether you have an idea or are clueless about what you want, Pinterest.com is a great place to start. In Pinterest you can find endless inspiration from bloggers, interior designers, and other users with great taste.
2. Pick a color scheme
Once you have an idea of what you want, the next step is to pick your color scheme. A color scheme will help your workspace to flow and be aesthetically appealing. We recommend picking 4 colors that go well together and are easy to incorporate.
3. It’s Shopping Time!
Now that you know what you are looking for and have committed to your color scheme, you’re ready for the fun step! The amount of décor and organization tools may vary depending on the size of your workspace. Here’s a list of items to consider:
- Scented Candle
- Picture Frames
- Pencil holder
- Drawer Organizer
- Filing Cabinet
- Desktop Stand
- Comfortable Office Chair
- Low Maintenance Plant or Artificial Plant
*Remember to keep your color scheme in mind when shopping.
4. Time to get Organized
This step calls for you to completely organize every inch of your office. Throw out or shred any paper work you no longer need. Get rid of any dried-out pens/markers, old calendars and any existing clutter. When you are down to the essentials, bring out the new organization accessories you purchased and start putting them to use.
5. Bring out the Décor
Now that all your office supplies are neat and organized, it’s time to personalize your space. Bring out all the fun décor and stationary and watch as your office transform into an extension of your home. You now have a decluttered and personalized space to be productive every day.
