Getting it Together: 10 Desk Essentials for an Organized and Attractive Office

Posted on 06/18/14 in Office Space
Office SuppliesWhen you work in an office, your desk is probably where you spend most of your days. What could be more depressing than a space that contains nothing more than a computer, a phone, and piles of papers?

An office that is well organized and pleasing to the eye not only helps coworkers and clients form a positive impression of you, it helps you to be more productive.

The Top 10 Items to Have at Your Workspace

To get your office organized, choose desk accessories that meet your workflow needs, brighten your spirits, and reflect your unique personality. These items could include:

  1. Mouse pads. Whether it's one of those ergonomic numbers with a gel wrist rest, a psychedelic design, or a custom-printed pad with a personal photo or company logo, mouse pads are essential for anyone that uses a computer.
  2. Pen cups. How is it that you start out with one or two pens and end up with dozens? Keep them all in one place with a distinctive pen cup.
  3. Paper holders. Need to keep a document close at hand while you type? Use a stylish paper holder to prop the paper up, making it easier to read.
  4. Storage items. You can purchase coordinating storage containers, or if you're the DIY type, create them from items like paint cans or Mason jars.
  5. Wall organizers. Shelves, bulletin boards, and other clever items (like these repurposed clipboards) extend your storage space, freeing up your desk for the job at hand.
  6. Paperweights. They do have a purpose! Especially if there's a draft in your office, a personalized paperweight keeps your important papers from flying away.
  7. Calendars. These vital planning tools come in many forms, from page-a-day varieties to traditional wall calendars. You can even find multifunctional calendar mouse pads.
  8. Notepads. It's likely that you scribble down notes everywhere from your office to board meetings. Invest in quality notepads you'll want to display as well as use.
  9. Recycle bins. Be eco-considerate! Keep a recycle bin close at hand so you're not tempted to toss your paper, plastic, and metal waste in the trash.
  10. Little extras. No office is complete without personal touches like pictures, knickknacks, and mementos. Try to keep it to a few inconspicuous items that won't be a distraction throughout the day.

Although not every office will incorporate these elements, they can all be useful and distinctive parts of an effective workspace. Infuse your organization and décor with your own unique style, and watch your office become an oasis.
