Many businesses have their roots in someone’s home, starting perhaps in the spare room, dining room table or even the garage. As the business grows, it is important to establish a working environment conducive to productivity, and the best way to do that is to create sufficient space.

Decluttering your working spaces will enable you to better focus on the task at hand. Clutter can often take over one’s working space and the longer it is left, the bigger problem it becomes.

Organising your office (as well as the areas of your home in which you relax) will enable you to focus on your operations and deal with the challenges of the day more effectively.

Here are some helpful tips on how to create space by decluttering:

  • Identify problem areas and address them

Stop for a moment and take notice of all the clutter-filled spots around your home. Take the time to clear out these areas, whether it’s 10 minutes a day or once a week for an hour. Going forward, avoid letting this situation build up once again by doing regular clear-outs.

  • Eliminate the excess – declutter

Start by doing a systematic clean out of your cupboards, drawers and shelves to make the most out of your home space. Remember to work room by room as this will help keep you focused and make the job at hand seem more manageable. Consider donating any items which you no longer have use for. For the items you need for future use or which hold too much sentimental value, use self storage.

  • Choose the correct storage containers

Storage containers are ideal for keeping your items under control and in order. Avoid using bulky containers and make sure the ones you choose are easy to stack.

  • Use vertical space

If you’re struggling for space, consider looking up and utilising overhead space. This will open up your floor and desk space, therefore creating more space within your home office space. A simple solution is to invest in vertical shelving.

  • Invest in a self storage unit

One of the most viable solutions to controlling clutter and creating more space is to take advantage of self storage. Self storage is simple and affordable for households wanting to eradicate their clutter problems. Self storage enables you to unclutter your life without having to say goodbye to your belongings for good. Self storage facilities offer convenience and security, as well as flexibility as many facilities are accessible 24/7.

These are just a few helpful ways to eliminate clutter problems you may be experiencing, and allow you to reclaim your home and office space.
