Even though you have started your spring cleaning in other parts of your home, your home office needs some attention! Whether the colors aren’t stimulating or it needs organization, your home office is supposed to be an area you can be inspired and motivated to work. Spring is the perfect time to clean and purge, as well as give your space a burst of revitilizing freshness. Here are tips for organizing your home office with spring storage ideas.

Emphasize creative storage for display:
Sure you can purge and organize, but if your home office doesn’t convey life and inspiration, you will not want to work in it. Once you have organized your home office from last season, purged unwanted or unneeded paperwork, plan how you will display it. Storage and display options go hand in hand. Consider open shelving with easy to reach colorful periodical organizers, binders, and playful décor used as book ends or just to beautify your display. If you have a lot of files, opt for wood or colorful file cabinets then coordinate bright spring-colored file folders to make your records and accounts look great and motivate you to keep on working.

Play up the color:
When deciding on a color palette for your home office and storage items, consider what colors make you feel energized and which ones make you feel tired and unproductive. A neutral palette of warm whites, beiges, and muted blues and greens can be paired with pops of color in a bold area rug and/or colorful storage boxes, display boards, and wall hanging storage. Visit organization stores that specialize in ‘container’ and ‘self assembly’ living. These stores will have creative ideas for your desk drawers, desktop, and even fun colored trash receptacle cans. Organization can be meant for your work items, but it also can increase your visual enjoyment and the order of your home office.

Displays and functional storage for your smart phone, electronics, papers and pencils will help you organize, but creative storage will look inspiring and make you more productive. You never know, the more you like your home office, the more you might actually enjoy working!
