Home offices have become an important room in recent years with the growing popularity of working remotely. This young family was no exception with the mom working from home and utilizing this space on a daily basis. We teamed up with design expert and mom-of-two young children, Emily Henderson, to come up with some safe and stylish solutions to make a sleek home office work harder for this family.

1. Unfiled Paperwork
As with most desks, this one had a paperwork pile. Emily Henderson came up with smart solutions to make sure this home office stays safe. The first solution: a shredder to ensure sensitive paperwork is disposed of safely. To protect important documents, hide them in plain sight. We purchased a safe and concealed it with a DIY-friendly box. What looks like a stack of storage boxes is actually hollowed out and glued back together. No thief would think to look under there!
