Springboards to an Organized Home Office

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


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.


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.

Small Spaces=Fun Places

There are a number of advantages to small space living.  Many people prefer to live in small spaces as opposed to bigger homes.  Whether you are just starting out or have chosen to downsize, it is especially important that you feel relaxed and comfortable whatever your small space circumstances are.

City life is often analogous to small space living.  Many people often live in apartments because they are abundant and suggest a certain appealing urban lifestyle.  Additionally, those smaller spaces can be more cost effective depending on neighborhood, how many roommates one might have, and square footage.  However, the desire to live simply also now extends beyond apartments.  Tiny homes are a recent phenomenon, and these minuscule, yet beautiful dwellings are becoming desirable places to live.

Tiny House

In apartments and small homes, it is generally easier to keep living areas clean because there’s less upkeep involved.  Doing a “quick sweep” of all the living areas really does happen quickly with less ground to cover.  Along the same lines, it’s more difficult to accumulate large amounts of clutter when there’s no place to keep it.

Staying organized if you live in a small space is paramount.  Even messier people need places to keep everything so they know exactly where it is.  In considering storage where space is at a premium, it’s important to consider effectiveness, versatility, and cost.  You may want to use all available space in a smaller room, or simply do your best to eliminate messes in pesky areas.  Fortunately, Bush Furniture can help you stay organized whether you need to maximize minimal space or clean up specific areas in your home.
