We all can’t have sprawling offices overlooking the ocean or city skyline. Some of us have smaller offices where storage can be challenging. Maximize your office space with our simple storage tips.
Backs of Doors: Serve Dual Purposes

Utilize every inch of space in the office, including the door. The backing of your office door can be used to store additional supplies. You can even use shoe compartment bags, doubling as storage for your calculator, stapler, pens, pencils, and more! Is your desk space tight? Not a problem – you can also use the back of the door as a surface for your calendar or whiteboard, keeping your schedule outlined and organized.
Make Intelligent Lighting Choices
Be cognizant of the lighting choices you use in a smaller office. Try not to use larger fixtures or oversized lamps, as they take up a lot of space. It is advisable to use innovative and eco-friendly LED desk lamps that provide a lot of light, while taking up less space.
Maximize Your Space Vertically
Why not maximize your office space, even toward the ceiling? Purchase filing cabinets that are taller, versus wider, to maximize your floor space. Stack old storage file boxes as high as possible, without causing an accident.
When dealing with smaller spaces, it is important to assign everything dual purposes, if and when possible. Utilize hooks to hang bags, jackets, computer chargers, and more to eliminate any clutter on your desk or office chair.
Minimize Physical Paper Storage
Anything that can be stored digitally should be scanned onto your computer, minimizing the countless amount of paperwork cluttering your desk surface. If anything is important and needs to be stored physically, such as legal documents or certificates, file them away and out of sight.
