At The Self Storage Company, we understand how a de-cluttered and organised office can be essential to running a successful business. Good office organisation ensures that important documents and supplies are easy to find, tasks are completed promptly, and there is less stress and chaos in the workspace. It also helps maintain a professional appearance for clients visiting your office. 

Take a look at these valuable office organisation ideas from our team of self-storage experts and discover how properly organising your workspace can improve productivity and help you focus on specific goals without getting distracted or overwhelmed by clutter.

Office Organisation Ideas and Increasing Productivity

Storing Documents and Office Supplies 

It is important to store documents and supplies in an orderly manner that can be easily accessed when needed. A filing cabinet or a set of labelled folders are both great ways to keep paperwork and legal documents neatly organised. For office supplies, designate separate drawers or baskets for items such as pens, sticky notes, paper clips, staples, etc. This will help ensure essential items are always within reach without having to search through piles of clutter.

Using a Filing System

Utilising a filing system helps organise paperwork into categories, which makes it easier to locate specific documents when needed. Colour-coding labels by subject matter can also help streamline document retrieval even further. Additionally, implementing digital storage solutions like cloud computing services or establishing a paperless office can help reduce the amount of physical space used for storing files while providing secure access from any device with an internet connection.

Create To-Do Lists

Another effective way to stay organised is by jotting down tasks daily so they don’t get forgotten among the chaos in your workspace. A To do list provides clarity on what needs to be accomplished each day and allows you to focus on completing one task at a time until everything is checked off the list at the end of the day or week. By breaking up work into smaller chunks, it becomes easier to stay motivated and productive throughout the day instead of getting overwhelmed by large projects or deadlines looming in the future.

How do you organise an office effectively?

Designating an Organised Home Office Space

A designated home desk space is essential if you are working from home. This area should be free of distractions and provide you with the necessary tools to get work done efficiently. Consider office furniture that suits your needs, such as an adjustable desk and chair, bookcases or shelves for storage space, and adequate lighting so that you can focus on the tasks at hand without fatigue. If possible, use this area exclusively for work-related activities to help separate professional life from personal matters.

Optimising Office Space and Layout

Optimising your office requires careful planning to make the most of your work productive environment. Establishing work zones based on the type of activity allows each specific space to have its purpose – one section could be dedicated to filing documents while another might serve as a workspace where you can handle any admin tasks without distraction. Installing wall-mounted racks helps declutter surfaces and create vertical space for storage solutions which will save valuable floor space in a small office. 

Desk Organisation Ideas

Additionally, making the most of some of the best desk organisation ideas will keep items within arm’s reach but also reduce clutter, stay focused and ensure your workspace stays nice and tidy. You may consider purchasing: 

  • Pegboards
  • Sticky notes 
  • Small containers 
  • A pencil cup 
  • Binder Clips
  • Zip Ties
  • Desktop organisers
  • Drawer organisers
  • File Folders
  • Floating Shelves
