Home offices can come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Some are a small corner of a larger room in the house and some are converted garages, spare bedrooms, dedicated studies or even the kitchen table. For the average ‘work from home’ person, it tends to be the smallest spare room that gets converted to the home office. Having this separate space ideal, as it means you can switch off from work and I feel organised and motivated by having everything work related in one place.

For those leading a fairly active and on-the-go lifestyles, organisation is very important. Whether that be for work, school, homework, ballet classes, swim classes, and general day-to-day life it can be difficult to stay on top of everything.

Home offices turn into a bit of a dumping ground for documents, stationary and knick-knacks. To take back your space and give your office a good sort through follow these 5 top tips to get organised and motivated in your home office.

1. Use a Diary

Make daily entries into your diary and keep it somewhere you know you will always see it. A paper diary still reigns supreme when adding notes and appointments. This beautiful hardback diary and notebook in the Glasshouse range are so gorgeous and all the colours work really well together.

2. Have a Place For Everything – including the rubbish.

Where possible, have a dedicated space to store your paperwork, plugs, cameras, books, chargers, wires and stationary. Having a place to keep items, eliminates mess, keeps the workstation clear and avoids a build up of clutter and unnecessary paperwork scattered about.

3. Work from Left to Right

This little trick can be really useful over the years. Keep all your pending correspondence on the left and move/file on the right. This also avoids paper shuffling which we can all be guilty of doing.

4. To-Do Lists

Write a to-do list the night before so you know exactly what you expect the next day before you go to bed. This sets out clearly the days tasks, so you can just crack on with the work. You’ll obviously need a fabulous pen or two to write your lists – and these stylish pens do just the job.

5. Decor

Not all offices have to be dull and boring. In fact, you are more productive and creative by surrounding yourself with objects you find appealing. This wonderful wall clock compliments the room beautifully. While being organised can feel a little regimented, you can still do it in style. This office is bright and spacious and adding pops of colour here and there keep it inviting. The Glasshouse range of stationery has been the perfect compliment to the current white and greys.
