How to decorate and organize your home office

For many people, a home office is an essential part of the house that stores financial documents and other important information that is either personal or work-related. If you plan to spend a significant amount of time in this room, it's a good idea to create a space that is both comfortable to work in and conducive to your productivity. 

Here are some tips to keep in mind when decorating and organizing your home office:

Personalize it – Similar to how you might bring photographs of your family or a print-out of a favorite painting to hang in a cubicle, you want to make sure your home office suits your unique personality and features more than just paper clips and pencils – just do your best to keep the actual desk space clear. 

Purchase quality furniture – A comfortable chair is key – especially if you're going to be putting in full 40-hour work weeks. Additionally, invest in a sturdy desk that will give you enough room to spread out when you want to. 

Reduce clutter – According to Psychology Today, a messy home can cause stress and anxiety, and that's the last thing you need when you're trying to get some work done. By using shelves and bins to store the items you're not using at the moment, you can implement a system that makes sense to you and encourages you to be productive.
