5 tips to create a calm & organised home office

Do you work from home and want to set up your own work space? Here are 5 tips on how to create an organised home office.

As someone who spends a significant amount of time in their office, I believe having a workspace that uplifts and inspires happiness is crucial. After some experimentation over the years I have got the ideal workspace. By incorporating a few simple and readily available products, I’ve transformed my office into a truly calm and organised office. 

1. Create a calming environment

Unlock the power of essential oils they are known to reduce anxious feelings, promote mental clarity and focus, and can even be used to create homemade cleaners that help lower the number of chemicals used in your household. They can also create a calming and peaceful environment perfect for achieving a restful night’s sleep.


Having everything you need conveniently located on top of your work desk can greatly improve your productivity and overall work experience. For starters, having tissues on hand can save you the inconvenience and distraction of having to search for them when needed. A pen holder for pens makes it easy to grab one quickly without having to dig through a cluttered drawer. Similarly, having a phone holder can help you keep your device within reach for easy access, while drawers for bits of paper can provide a convenient place to store important documents or notes. By keeping all your essential items within arm’s reach, you can streamline your workflow and maximise your efficiency, ultimately helping you get more done in less time.

3. Organise your stationary drawer

If you’re looking to create an organised home office, tackling the clutter that often accumulates in your desk drawer is essential. Transform this space from a junk drawer stuffed with old papers and broken stationery into a tidy, functional area with the help of some clear storage tray containers. These containers will keep all your bits and pieces neatly organised and easy to find and add a touch of aesthetic pleasure to your workspace. 

Here is a list of things you can remove from your office drawer.

4. Keep yourself hydrated

Are you guilty of forgetting to drink enough water throughout the day? We all work better when we’re properly hydrated so invest in a water bottle and set an alarm that goes off every 30 minutes to remind you to drink!

5. Get yourself a planner and calendar

Using a planner to organise your tasks and appointments for work can be incredibly beneficial for several reasons. Firstly, it helps you to prioritise your tasks and manage your time more effectively, which is key to staying on top of your workload. Additionally, having all your tasks and appointments in one place lets you create a clear and detailed overview of your schedule, allowing you to plan your day or week more efficiently. Using a planner can help you avoid missed deadlines or appointments, ensuring everything is completed on time. Not to mention, it can also reduce stress levels by providing a sense of control and organisation, ultimately leading to increased productivity and job satisfaction.
