If you, like thousands of others out there, face the daily struggle of trying to optimise your office whilst battling an ever-expanding to-do list, you will appreciate how difficult it is to give everything a home without compromising on convenience and the ability to see and access what you need, when you need it.
Whether you work in a sprawling commercial space or a cosy home office, there just never seems to be enough room for everything.
No matter how large your desk is, how many cabinets you’ve invested in, or how organised your labelled boxes are; you will still find a way to fill every inch of available surface, stuff drawers to breaking point and lose important documents and essential items when you need them most.
So how do you turn your disorganised office into a practical, professional, and aesthetically pleasing workspace? Well, you can start with storage furniture, specifically, shelving.
You see, filing cabinets are great for files, and perhaps the odd “miscellaneous” drawer. Similarly, desks are ideal for desktop computers and desk tidies. But these purpose-specific furniture items don’t necessarily do the best job when it comes to general storage.
Shelving, on the other hand, can offer a practical and versatile storage solution that you can tailor to your own specific needs. Our range of shelving comes in a number of different styles, dimensions and finishes, meaning you will find a shelving unit (or a few) that will work perfectly in your office setup.
What’s more though is that shelves will give you easy access to everything you need, without the risk of everything falling into disarray. Gone will be the battle and queues that ensue when more than one person needs to grab something out of a cupboard. Plus, you won’t have to remember what you were thinking six weeks ago when you found a “safe place” to store that super-important, high- priority proposal.
You can use the shelves in their purest form, piling books and files on each tier (preferably in some form of order). Alternatively, you can incorporate other storage options like box files and labelled boxes for more random items. If you have enough space spare, you can even make room for a decorative item on each shelving unit, such as a picture frame or a vase.
If you have more than one shelving unit you can spread the storage, assigning one to files, another to books and another to lighter items. However, if you only have room (or need) for one shelving unit, you can put heavier files and books on the bottom, with small labelled storage boxes on upper shelves for lighter and more awkward items.
This way, everything is orderly and you can get to what you need at any given moment, knowing exactly where it is.
So instead of fighting your way through an office full of chaos and disorder, or locking everything away out of sight and out of mind, find yourself a sturdy yet stylish shelving unit you can make the most out of.
