Having worked at home for several years, the importance of well laid out office space has always been a priority. Discovering the ideal layout for my office space has led me to discover what works and what does not work. Fortunately, the advent of smaller computers and all-in-ones has helped.

Creating the Ideal Office Space

office spaceWhen you are deciding on an office layout, not only do you have to take into consideration how much space you have, but you also need to have a basic idea of what makes you comfortable. Since most of us spend several hours in our offices, the space must be free of clutter, have proper storage space and be sufficient for filing and work needs. There are ways to maximize office space including purchasing corner desks, floor to ceiling bookcases and all-in-one printers. Each of these helps us to make the most of our existing office space.

Layout matters - One of the first things that should be done when laying out your office space is to determine what items you are going to need close at hand. Minimizing the amount of time you have to spend walking to a printer or copy machine can add several minutes a day to your productivity.

Decorating office space - When you are making decisions on decorating your office space, you can incorporate your personality into your decorating. Some people will go for "green" decorating, others for family photos. Also bear in mind that some colors help add to productivity while some detract from productivity.

Not all of us are fortunate enough to have a large office space available.This does not mean that we are forced to be uncomfortable while working. Finding the ideal combination of furnishings and storage solutions for small office space is possible with good planning.
