Creative Ways to Organize
There is a lot to be said for having an organized workspace. Whether it is a home office, a traditional office space, or any place of business, an organized area can have a positive effect on your productivity and efficiency. It may even enhance your mood and disposition.
Don’t forget about digital organization, either. Keeping all of your work-related folders and documents organized on your computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or any other electronic device can be just as important as tidying your physical space.
Being organized essentially means that you know where to find something right away when you need it, so you don’t waste too much time searching for it. It means you have developed a system or structure, and you have figured out what works best for you, your lifestyle, and your work ethic.
There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to business or home office organization ideas. Everyone has their own needs and wants when it comes to how they like their workspace to be arranged. Some prefer organization in a very traditional sense, with simple shelving, bookcases, and filing cabinets to keep their office supplies, documents, and other necessary tools and accessories in an orderly manner. There is also a lot of fun and creative ways to organize your space, including various do-it-yourself (DIY) projects and things you can create and customize to fit your office’s needs — saving you a little money while you’re at it.
When you utilize organization tips that help you succeed in your work, you may find that your office area turns into a more enjoyable and relaxing space instead of a high-stress environment like many work conditions often are.
Let’s explore some creative office organization ideas for your workspace.

Evolution of the Office Space
If you’ve ever watched any TV shows from the 1950s and ’60s, you were probably struck by the unique style of the offices portrayed. With couches and bar carts as office decor, the office space was very different from what we’re accustomed to today.
The office space — including the accessories, technology, and furniture it holds — has evolved significantly over time, often reflecting changing attitudes and trends in the working culture. Even today with social distancing, the environments we work in are continuing to evolve in line with how we work.
In the examples below, discover how the office space has transformed over time — and find out how you can equip your workspace to meet the demands of modern office life. You may even find some office inspiration and decorating ideas that inspire you to make over your own workspace.
