1. Keep cords out of sight

2. Clear the clutter weekly

Don’t wait for springtime to do all of your desktop cleaning. To keep your desk tidy year-round, spend a few minutes every Friday tossing or filing old papers and putting loose objects where they belong.

3. The Great Wall

When you’re short on space, a bare wall can be a valuable asset. Consider building up (rather than always extending wide). Simple, easy-to-install floating shelves are a practical way of breaking up a wall painted a bright hue.

4. Make an inspiration board

Instead of letting loose papers flutter around your space, keep a board of all the odds and ends that inspire you. A bulletin board is also a great place to pin small details you might otherwise lose like photographs and business cards.

5. Write by the light

Choosing a space near the window is always a good idea. Natural light is always a great addition to any workspace.

6. Choose a comfy throne

The most important thing is to get a comfortable office chair! Find one that looks and feel great!

7. Make it personal

9. Turn your closet into an office
