How To Organise Your Desktop

The desk is the center of your home office and it’s important to choose the right essential pieces for a clutter free and organised home office. Today I have some simple tips to organise your desktop beautifully.

Desk Organisation

Firstly make sure your desk is the correct size for your basic needs, this will help you to work more efficiently. Some home office essentials are:

  • Desk lamp
  • Pen holder and pens
  • Space around your laptop
  • Notebooks
  • Organisation tray
  • Post it notes
  • Beautiful Coffee mug
  • Sticky tape
  • Stapler

Stick to a Color Scheme

Decorating your office with matching storage boxes and organisation pieces in the same colour palette will make for a beautifully styled office that you will want to spend time in.

Choose some pretty baskets or boxes for storage and place them on open shelving for a pretty display.

Use Drawer Dividers

A drawer organiser will keep your desktop drawer tidy and free of any unwanted clutter or pieces you don’t need.

Store your business cards and USB sticks in easy to find compartments.

Working Space

I have a separate round table in my office for working on projects, from gift wrapping to cutting out fabrics.

This keeps the clutter and unnecessary items off my desk and allows plenty of room to work.

Pretty Desktop Download

My day starts with opening my laptop and checking my email. I have created this free digital download for your desktop.

It’s so much nicer to see a pretty picture from my garden in the morning, especially in Winter on my desktop. Download the image and right click on your mouse and choose set as background image.

Hang a Pinboard/Whiteboard

My Whiteboard is full of inspiration from fabric samples to pictures of furniture and check lists.

It’s not only a good reminder and great place for inspiration but keeps all the bits and pieces away from my desk and laptop.

Try and make your notice board as pretty and organised as possible for everyday inspiration and keeping your desktop tidy.

Weekly Planner

Keep a Weekly Planner handy on your desktop so you can have a clear picture of what you are going to achieve that week. This is something I’m going to start today.
