How To Organizing an Office Layout?

How To Organizing an Office Layout?

Plan a layout so that the items you use most often are within easy reach of your desk.

Using Space Cleverly in The Office

  • Utilising comers If you have a small work area, fit a triangular desk in a corner.
  • Laying out stationery Keep out only as much stationery as you will need for a few days. Store the rest out of the way.
  • Mounting items on walls If you have limited space for work surfaces, mount items such as a telephone and a desk lamp on a wall.
  • Using a cart Keep a cart to hold items that you use every day. Push the cart underneath your desk when you have finished work.

Pad a piece of wooden cork board with a sheet of foam. Cut a piece of scrap fabric to cover the board, leaving a 2-in (5-cm) edge of fabric all around the edge. Lay the foam-covered board on top of the material, and nail the excess material to the back.

Using Shelf Space

  • Installing shelves When you fit shelves, allow more shelf space than you think you will need so that you have room to store extra items in the future.
  • Using furniture Use the tops of cabinets as shelving for lightweight objects. Make sure that you do not overload these surfaces.
  • Storing books Put reference books on a shelf by your desk so that you can reach them without leaving your chair.
  • Storing files Put filing trays on deep shelves to keep your work surface clear.

Creating Storage

Improvising filing trays

Clean a set of unused, stackable vegetable racks, and use them instead of a filing tray to hold papers. Stand the racks on an accessible work surface or shelf.

Using Shelf Space

 

Displaying Data

  • Using wall space Display visual information such as planners and notices on a wall in front of your desk, where you can see the information without turning around.
  • Making bulletin boards To make an inexpensive bulletin board, collect several dozen corks, cut them in half lengthwise, and glue the pieces onto a wooden board.
  • Using spaces under shelves If you have shelves just above your desk, fit a panel of cork or bulletin board between the lowest shelf and the top of your desk so that you can make use of the wall space.

Making an Office Memo Board

  1. Pad a piece of wooden cork board with a sheet of foam. Cut a piece of scrap fabric to cover the board, leaving a 2-in (5-cm) edge of fabric all around the edge. Lay the foam-covered board on top of the material, and nail the excess material to the back.
  2. Lay thin ribbons on top of the fabric in a crisscross pattern. Fasten the crossing points to the board with drawing pins, and pin the ends of ribbon to the back of the board. Mount the memo board on a wall, and tuck cards and notes under the ribbons.
