Office Epidemics: Confined Interiors

With a confined office interior, it's hard to be productive. You're likely feeling cramped and limited on operating space. Today on the blog we'll teach you how to avoid this office epidemic. From hot new open concept furnishings to unique storage products for persona organizing, we'll have you working smart and effective in no time. Enjoy!

If you feel like your office walls are starting to close in on you, it's time to make a change. It's always a good idea to start with a thorough cleaning. Purge those old file cabinet drawers effectively and rid your space of documents that are no longer necessary. With open drawer space, you'll be able to determine how much room you have left for future growth.

You'll also want to get your pens, post its, and regularly used stationary items properly organized. There's a lot of office hacks out there that provide handy ways of tackling this task efficiently. If you're looking to free up additional desk space taken up by stationary organizers, consider transitioning them into zip lock bags and putting them in drawers. If you need a little extra drawer space, you might consider decorating a few cool mason jars and organizing your stationary items on top of your desk. The options are really limitless!

Your interior will start to feel confined if the area and space underneath your desk isn't put to good use. All too often we see interiors with boxes underneath the desk, as well as a ton of debris from snacking. Create as much knee space as possible by removing and cleaning up all the fodder you can. You might also consider integrating a retractable CPU mount that allows your computers power source to be slid out of the way when not in use.

When all else fails, it's time to consider a remodel. It's quite possible you've simply outgrown your current office furniture configuration. We highly recommend taking pictures of your interior, along with dimensions. Visit a local design team in your area to discuss your personal workspace needs. They'll be happy to provide you with ideas on how to get the most out of your valuable square footage.

This year, it's all about open concept office interiors built for productivity. The best part about an open concept interior, is that it will do the complete opposite of confine you. To create an open concept environment, you'll need to focus on selecting the proper components for your space. It all starts with the collection. We've provided a few resources below to help.

Once you've removed your old furniture, give those walls a fresh coat of paint. It's best to do this before new items arrive. Rest assured it's never fun to paint around fancy new furnishings. Painting your walls a light, bright, and trendy color will make it feel less confined and far more welcoming. This year, coastal tones like light grays, blues, and greens have been super popular.

Open Concept WorkspaceLast but not least, it's time to maximize your office storage and organizing potential. Sure a couple of file cabinets will do the trick, but they take up a ton of valuable floor space. Make your interior feel more open and less confined by integrating a wall mount hutch unit that can be rested atop your desk. Mounting a hutch will provide you with a ton of storage space.
