Believe it or not, there is an easy way to set up your home office. If you set your office up in order it will reduce clutter, and disorganization. These tips from Denver office movers will help you get your home office space up and ready for you to get to work.

First, Start the Large Furniture

The largest items need to be moved into your office space first. First lay down and arrange any rugs or mats you want to use in the space. Then set up your desk, bookshelves and other large items. Keep boxes and other office items in another room until you complete this step, so the extra clutter isn’t in the way.

Next, Bring in the Smaller Furniture

Now that you have floor coverings and larger pieces in place, you can bring in your desk chair, extra chairs, file cabinet, and other smaller pieces of furniture you need. This lays the groundwork for the next steps.

Now Add Lighting

Add in your extra lighting. Lamps and desk lights will not only improve your productivity once you get to work, but they’ll also help you see better for your next steps. This will also give you the opportunity to see where your electrical plugs are located, and how many you must use.

Set-Up the Computer and Printer

Next up it’s time to add in your desktop, laptop, printer, and any other equipment you need in this space. Use power strips as necessary to maximize your plug space and for improved surge protect. Now is also an excellent time to label and hide those unsightly cords.

Hang up the Wall Art and Accessories

Since your furniture and other essentials are in place, you can now hang your wall art and know where it needs to go. You will also be able to see the height you need to place it. Fill your bookshelf with your book collection. Other customary office décor can be set up at this point too, including trophies, certificates, diplomas, licenses, and collections.

Unpack the Office Supplies

Now is the time to bring in your office supplies. You can fill your desk drawers with those things that make your work easier, including:

  • stapler, and remover 
  • scissors 
  • tape 
  • paper clips
  • pens
  • pencil sharpener and pencils
  • paper, folders, and notebooks
  • stamps
  • envelopes
  • letterhead

Finish off with Personal Touches

A family picture is always nice to have in your office. It reminds you why you work so hard. Adding a fresh indoor plant will help you keep the air clean and add ambiance.

Setting up your home office in this order streamlines the process of getting your new space ready to use. When you are done, everything will be in its place ready for you to get to work!
