Top 5 Ways to Improve your Home Office

Deciding to create an office within your home can seem like a daunting task with big business plans and little space. Organizing your home office is not just deciding where the computer should go. Luckily Tailored Living offers a free and easy solution for the biggest part, visualizing. With their proprietary 3D design software, D'Vinci, they can actually start the design process during the complimentary in-home consultation, and create a virtual replica of your future home office design––complete with your exact color scheme. So, to get started, here are 5 home office ideas that will improve your home office design guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing.

First, determine how much space you’ll need for important paperwork. If you’re an architect, designer, or landscaper you’ll need a large counter space and storage for your drawings, blueprints, renderings and plans. Stacked roll out counters that pull out and slide away when not in use are an ingenious way to have many projects going at once and conserve on space.

Second, planning for just the right desk height along with adjustable features is an integral part of a proper ergonomic workstation. Working with the organization specialists at Tailored Living ensures that your desk will be designed with the functionality and comfort specifically tailored to your intensive daily work regime.

Third, incorporating practical solutions for your trashcans, recycling bins, shredders, printers, and electronic cords is where home office organization takes on a whole new art form. Making these unsightly essentials somehow magically disappear yet be accessible takes planning and foresight. Also, if you're looking for ways to improve your WiFi and internet connectivity, then you might want to consider upgrading to a Mesh WiFi system. Mesh WiFi uses multiple router nodes to ensure you get consistent coverage throughout your home. If you would like to learn more, this guide will help you find the best mesh WiFi.

Fourth, install storage cabinets to organize large amounts of books, boxes, and binders. Efficient use of wall space is best accomplished with the experts at Tailored Living. By using 3-D design software you can see the exact height and depth of your cabinets before they’re even built.

Fifth, remember that you will need to store your important files so find the right filing cabinet system to help with organization. In general, erring on the side of too many drawers is better than the opposite so that every type of item has its own place. Although the world is often at your fingertips in the computer age, you will likely need at least a few physical books and a good place to store your hard work. Finding a good bookshelf that works well with the rest of your furnishings will help round out the foundation of your working space.
