In addition to having an ergonomic workspace, it’s worth thinking about how you can keep your workspace tidy. After all, staying organized is another way to boost productivity. That’s why we went to NEAT Method, the organization experts, who shared their five tips on how to keep your workspace in order.
- Clear off your desktop.
Try to have as clear a desktop as possible. If your desk has limited drawer space, choose beautiful pieces to store items in on your desktop and source modular drawers for below your desk that align with its style.
- Categorize your items.
By sorting your items into categories and storing each category together, you’ll get a clear picture of how much of a given item you have. This will also help you know which categories could be edited down and either parted with or stored elsewhere as back stock.
- Divide the space.
By dividing up the interior of a drawer with individual dividers, you can customize the space for the items you use. Be sure to measure the interior of each drawer to make sure your chosen products will fit. Then arrange them in a way that will fit the space perfectly.
- Choose neutral colors.
For any organizational products you’re using to outfit your space, we recommend neutral colors, like white, black, grey, or clear. They’re easy on the eyes, reduce visual clutter, and blend in with any decor style.
- Use labels.
By labeling where items belong, this will encourage you (or any of your “coworkers”) to keep the space NEAT. Labels identify exactly where items should be returned to.
An organized workspace will help both your productivity and quality of work. By putting these tips in place (and perhaps pairing them with some of our organizational products!), you’ll be able to focus on the tasks at hand knowing your space is well arranged and clutter-free.
