Most of us have too much stuff, it’s not our fault, there are just so many cool things out there to buy. But the problem with stuff is that we run out of places to put it.Especially the things that we don’t use very often. And then we run into the problem of clutter. Our offices can have the same problem. And when offices get cluttered, it hurts your corporate image and your sense of well-being. There are two answers to this problem. Either get rid of most of it or find useful storage solutions. You really should try the first option, but then if you still have too much, here are some storage ideas that might be of some help.

Built in Furniture: One of the best ways to utilise an office space, is to take advantage of corners, wall, and surface areas. Building desks, work areas, and storage into the room can free up a lot of space in the middle. The areas above desks are frequently dead space. But if the desk is attached to the wall, the area up to the ceiling can be utilized for cabinets and shelving units. Look for areas in the office that are awkward or hard to utilize, and then see if you can’t design some space in there for storing supplies or merchandise. This is also an excellent way to keep all those unsightly wires out of the way. Built in furniture is tidy, and it fits in with today’s wireless office environments.

Cubicles: Cubicles are a symbol of drudgery and the expendability of the employee. Cubicles are ugly, soul destroying, and they can be a waste of space too. If you must have desks in the middle of the room, it is much better to build solid walls in x patterns, and then use that sturdy structure for cabinets and built-in desks. If you add a few more walls, you can get your employees some doors. This goes against the whole cubical concept, but that’s probably going to be appreciated. If your company prefers an open plan office, then get rid of the cubicles all together and build around the perimeter, leave the space in the middle for worktables and couches.

Slide Outs: In many offices there areitems that are useful, but not frequently used. If these items are unattractive and adding to office clutter. You might want to engineer cabinets with slide outs. This way these items can be stored out of sight. Worktables are another item that can take up a lot of room. One answer is to make them to fold up and out of the way when not in use. They can also be used as temporary desks.

If you have been following the trend of tiny homes, you should know that the same type of solutions can apply to small office spaces. The biggest issue with tiny homes is where to put your stuff. The two answers still apply. Get rid of what you can, and then get creative with built in solutions.
