Home Office Organisation Inspiration

The Home Office Makeover is well under way.  This is going to be a long and slow process but hey we have made a start.

This room is a VERY dificult shape to work with.

With its multiple windows, 2 doors and angled wall, it is making positioning furniture VERY difficult.

The entry to the study, is right off the entry of our house AND it has no door on it!  This was part of the original house plan and I now really wish we had of included doors.  It is a 9ft high opening and not a standard door size so doors are not going to happen!  The benefit is though that I have a nice view form the desk to our front entry table!

We have a medium sized Expedit unit to include, to provide storage primarily for folders. 

 

A bit like this.

So with that in mind…..The first question…..

Do I lay the Expedit on its side?

 This creates a second bench, (I already have a long table) and frees up wall space for shelves. However, I wouldn’t like to use the bottom shelves for folders as they would be hard to get at.  The bottom shelves would be better for boxes or baskets. However I really don’t need 4 basket spaces. I feel like this would be a wasted space. So do I stand her up?

This would make the best use of all shelves AND could go on either wall. I could still use the bottom two for baskets but would have 6 spaces for folders and magazine holders.  I could also use the side of the unit to hand some clipboards? Laying it down would mean it could only go on the angled wall.

So what say you? Up or down? Vertical or Horizontal? Rearrange the whole room? 

I will post some pics on Instagram today to give you a real view of the MAYHEM! Follow the hashtag #mppoffice on Instagram.

    Well from what you say above it sounds like you think standing vertical will suit your needs best. I like either way, as you said laying it horizontal you get a nice display shelf and leave the wall for shelving but vertical you have a heap of room next to it…..hmmm I am probably a bad one to give my opinion at this stage as I am up to ‘take 3’ on our home office! The photo you posted last night with white expedit and the pink and pistachio folders and boxes and desk coming off it is my new inspiration! I have got a quote to paint our gorgeous timber MASSIVE computer hutch white as a starting point! I sooooo need to ask my sister to allow me to share some photos of her craft room for you, she is AMAZING at making a space work beautiful and functional, she is my inspiration too!
    Hmmmm but after all that I think just now whatever you do until you work in the room you won’t get that real feeling for it until then 🙂 ok I think I have rambled enough! Xxxx

  2. I like the look of the expedit horizontal but it does mean more bending down for access and dependent on how often you will be accessing the bottom row, it could get really tedious quickly. Vertically seems like the best option from what you say.
