Give Your Home Office A Spring Makeover

Do you get the Spring Home Office Blues? With spring in the air, warmer weather and the first hints of green outside, itís easy to feel a little depressed if you are stuck in your home office for a good part of the day. One of the best ways to tackle this problem is to give your home office a good spring-cleaning and makeover.

Get Rid Of The Clutter

Nothing makes you feel more trapped inside than a cluttered office. Take an hour or two and go through everything in your home office. Sort through stacks of paper, and toss or file everything appropriately. This is also a great time to ban anything that does not apply to your actual work from your home office, including childrenís toys, magazines, personal bills and correspondence, junk mail etc.

Time For A Thorough Cleaning

Now that you have gotten rid of all the extra clutter, set aside some time to give your office a thorough cleaning. Start at the top and work your way down. Wipe off any ceiling fans and light fixtures, as well as curtain rods and doorframes. Clean the windows inside and out and throw the curtains in the washing machine. Remove books and picture frames from shelves, dust them off and give the entire shelf a good dusting as well. Mop the floor or shampoo the carpet. Donít forget to wipe down any pictures you have hanging and dust the baseboards. If you donít have the time, or just donít like to clean, consider hiring a cleaning service to come in and do the job for you.

Rearrange Your Office Furniture

Consider rearranging your office furniture to give you a new, fresh look. Consider moving your desk in front of a window so you can see outside. Bring in a favorite chair that you can relax in while you read over proposals, or study the latest print publication for your industry. Bring in some new pictures, a different rug, or any other accessories that will give your office the look you want.

Bring The Spring Inside

If going outside isnít an option, bring the spring inside. Get a few new plants for your office and keep some fresh cut flowers from your garden or your local florist at your desk. Open the window whenever weather permits and let the fresh clean spring air in.

Most importantly, donít get stuck in your office all day every day. Take some time to enjoy the beautiful spring days outside with your family. You will find yourself more efficient in your freshly cleaned and organized home office. Take advantage of it by getting the work done so you can go out and play.

Working from home I find that I have to reorganize my office every week!  It's amazing how quickly that it becomes a mess!  Between kids, husband and work it gets crazy!

Hi  Smiley

Ohh I know how it's feel when you need  to reorganised the clutter on the desk.
I am normally a neat freak, but I have seem felt I am racing against the time.. Specially when all the notes coming home from school..
At least now I know it is not only me who gets their office in a twist..
Thanks again
  

Have an awesome day..Smiley&&&&Cheers&&Jeannie&& (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)

I just went completely through my desk.. papers papers papers... funny how much stuff you collect, thinking you might use it later.. I finally decided, if i havent used it, then trash it.. I can always just print off a copy from the computer if I need one.. alot less room taken up that way..ha

That's A great tips, working a very nice work place makes you work comfortable.you will  feel like there's room to breathe, so you can really focus and be productive. Everywhere your eye rests is something that's visually pleasing. That frees up space in my brain to be creative."
