Home Office Storage & Organiation Solutions


Create a home office anywhere with these ideas from Better Homes & Gardens for streamlined storage and efficient organisation.


Create a corner office at home by zoning a section of a larger room (such as a living room or family room) as a work zone. Behind this desk, a large bookcase fulfills all the storage needs of this work area in one simple system. For more storage, hang floating shelves along the wall. When planning your home office, make sure there are adequate outlets nearby for computers, printers, and task lighting.




In a small space, take office storage to the walls to keep work surfaces clutter-free. In this space, cubbies were mounted to the wall and magazine holders were screwed into the bottom of the cubbies for an innovative mail sorter. For an easy and affordable work surface, transform a slab door into a desktop by mounting it to a wall and placing bookcases or file cabinets beneath it for support.


Bump a desk up against a window with a deep window sill and use the sill as an improvised shelf for baskets and boxes. Plus, placing a desk near a window provides plenty of natural light.


Capitalise on a corner office space by extending upper cabinetry into an L shape rather than just straight across the back of the desk. Use this new found storage space for display or for office necessities, such as files and desk supplies.


Serve all your organisational needs with a combination of basic solutions. Mount squares of fabric-covered corkboard for posting notes, pegboards for hanging supply cups and bins, and whiteboards or chalkboards for jotting down reminders.
