While home office storage and organization can't pay your bills on time or renew magazine subscriptions before they lapse, it can help you make sense of the paperwork and supplies needed to run your household more smoothly.

Types of Home Office Storage and Organization

If the kitchen is the heart of your home, then your home office is probably the hub. It's where homework gets done, bills get paid, classes get signed up for, and filing gets completed. But without the right storage and organization, your home office can quickly become a pile of paperwork and a mass of supplies. Key items can help—bookcases, desk organizers, pen and pencil holders, file cabinets, safes, and storage boxes. Use this guide to see the options for your home working spaces.

Bookcases

Bookcases range from waist-high, slim versions to floor-to-ceiling, wall-filling units. These may slip under a desk or provide surface area for necessary items such as file boxes and printers.

Product Features

Product Features

No longer are home office supplies castoffs from a badly outfitted workplace. In place of gunmetal gray, there are colors and patterns galore. In addition to the oft-seen and still-used metal, fabric, plastic, and wood make appearances, too. And there are practical features that make home office storage and organization simple to find and convenient to use. These product features—size, material, decorative features, and secure features—should be part of the equation as you consider what to buy for your home office space.

Size

Fortunately, there is a range of sizes for storage and organization items intended for the home office. For example, a slender bookcase and slim storage boxes may be enough to help you provide order to a desk niche in a family room.

Material

Materials differ from product to product. File cabinets may be made of wood, plastic, or metal, while fireproof boxes are always constructed of a heavy-duty material. Storage boxes may be fabric or even cardboard.

Decorative Features

Just because they are workaday doesn't mean that office storage and organization items have to be boring. Desktop organizers often show off pretty patterns, while file cabinets may be adorned with trim and molding to blend in with other furniture pieces.

Secure Features

Many home office storage and organization items have secure features, such as fireproofing or locks. Find those with the options that work best for your home and lifestyle.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Unless you work from home, your home office likely has many "bosses"—your spouse and your kids, among others. So what you buy has to serve both a primary purpose—making sense of homemaking necessities—as well as secondary purposes—stashing homework assignments, for example. To do that, two key purchase considerations come into play: flexibility and access. Here's a reminder of why they're important.

Flexibility

Your home office needs may change, so your home office storage and organization items should be able to change with you. Ensure that you buy a file cabinet that's a bit larger than needed, for example, to allow you room to store papers in the future.

Access

You may have a personal preference when it comes to accessing items such as files. For example, a legal-size file cabinet may accommodate any oversize items you have to store. Make sure you understand the dimensions and limitations of the pieces you're considering.
