Key-West-CROP2Furniture to Help You Spring Clean while Saving Green

Maintaining an organized home office is hard work. If you’re not careful, the papers pile up everywhere just to be knocked over by the cat or your kids. Important work documents get mixed in with junk mail, bills, homework and art projects you never have time to put away.

Whether you use your home office 40 hours a week or just to surf the net and hide paperwork, it’s time to spring into action and clear your workspace from clutter and stress. Furniture has come a long way on style without sacrificing functionality, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the price tags.

The first step to organizing your home office is actually having one. Your couch or kitchen table should not be confused with an office desk. Remote workers in particular need a dedicated home office that’s not where they eat breakfast or take a nap.

Short on space? No problem. With versatile storage and work surface varieties, the Key West Collection  fits almost anywhere while providing plenty of options for staying organized. The natural, easy-living style of Key West creates a relaxed atmosphere for a stress-free home office.

If you plan to set up a laptop, monitor, printer, phone or any other electronics, you’ll want a surface with cable management. Feed wires right through the surface to keep them organized and out of your way.

Once you have your office desk set up, you’ll enjoy the conveniences of a dedicated workspace and probably get a lot more done.shutterstock_151162832

FROM PILES TO FILES

It doesn’t matter how many papers are piled on your desk; you’re not letting a heavy, ugly metal cabinet cramp your style.

Thankfully, file cabinets don’t have to be bulky, dull or even stationary for that matter. This kathy ireland® Office by Bush Furniture Ironworks Mobile Pedestal stores letter and legal-sized files while catering to your rustic tastes. Drawers open on smooth ball-bearing slides for an easy reach to contents.

The mobile file cabinet complements the matching desk and rolls right underneath.

For a contemporary look with a space-saving design, try this stable but stylish Broadview White Desk with Organizer, Pedestal and File Cabinet. The attractive Satin Chrome hardware and Pure White finish complement a variety of home interiors, while the office furniture set handles all of your filing needs.

BOOKCASES FOR ALL SPACES

Find a place for your books, binders and decorative items of all sizes by adding a bookcase with adjustable shelves to your home office. Try a 72 inch 5 Shelf Bookcase to really cut down on clutter. Three adjustable shelves allow you to store and display a variety of office supplies, bins or even plants. Order two or three to create a storage wall.

If your workspace is really just a desk at the edge of your living room, consider adding a room divider. This 16 Cube Bookcase from kathy ireland Office® by Bush Furniture separates your home office from your living space while adding an ample amount of storage with contemporary flair.

With all the time you’ll save by having an organized home office, you can enjoy stepping away from your work area more often. When you sit back down, you’ll know just where to find all of your most important items and paperwork without having to dig through old notes and junk mail.

You’ll love the stress-free feeling of an organized workspace, with a place for everything and everything in place.

Avoid Dorm Room Disasters with Storage for Small Spaces

The summer is flying by with graduation parties, a part-time job and preparing to head off to college in just a few short weeks.

If you’re moving into a dorm, you’ll have a few basic furniture pieces when you arrive. However, you have a ton of stuff to display and store but not much space for it all. Just think of those books, folders, papers and electronics you need for class. Plus, you have to make the dorm feel like home with your favorite photos and possessions on display.

So rather than hiding stuff under the bed and tossing files on the floor by your chair, keep your roommate happy and plan to bring some extra storage along. These bookcases, storage areas and contemporary small desks take up very little room but still offer enough space to keep you organized between classes.

Here are a few of our favorite college furniture finds.

The Bush Furniture Cabot 6 Cube Bookcase provides a half-dozen storage cubbies in a compact package, spanning just 31 inches in width and a depth of 12 inches. The Espresso Oak, Harvest Cherry and Heather Gray finishes will work well in your dorm and could even look sharp in your first home or apartment a few years from now.

Set up the Bush Furniture Buena Vista Laptop End Table next to the bed and work in comfort with everything you need by your side. Rest your tablet or laptop on the pull-out shelf, or stash them in the storage and charging area. Open up the front of the storage compartment without having to move your lamp or picture frame from the back of the table top. Conceal cables and enjoy easy access to outlets while placing a printer, storage bin or even late-night snacks on the sturdy bottom shelf.

Add a stylish storage solution to your room with the clever and compact Bush Furniture Alamosa Ladder Bookcase. Display photos, books and knickknacks of all shapes and sizes on the four shelves. The Classic Black finish works well anywhere – from dorm rooms to first homes. Lean the Ladder Bookcase against the wall and get organized without taking up much room.
