11 simple buys to revolutionise your home office

Clear the clutter and make way for a perfectly organised workspace

Tidy desk, tidy mind – that’s how the saying goes. And who wouldn’t want a home office this beautiful? My office will NEVER look like that, we hear you cry in despair…

But fear not – we have chosen 6 of our favourite home office storage solutions to help you make the most of the space you have (although we can’t help with that massive pile of paperwork you’ve been meaning to tackle for months – sorry). Plus, who doesn’t love an excuse to shop?

1. Striped Angle Geometric Bookened, £34, West Elm

Keep your books, files and folders neatly organised with a smart bookend. This sophisticated design will help bring your home office bang up to date (luxe textures such as marble, copper and brass are everywhere this season) .

2. Suck UK pencil sharpener desk tidy, £15.95, John Lewis

Keep all your pens, rubbers and other bits and bobs in this in this
quirky desk tidy. We love the fun shape – a wooden pencil sharpener
complete with steel “blade”.


3. Pigeon hole wall shelf unit, £79,
Graham & Green

This storage unit is absolutely perfect for country-style office. Store bills you need to pay, that spare key you always lose and general office supplies in the handy holes.

4. Tom Dixon cube tape dispenser, £60, Amara

Bring a touch of metallic to your office with this funky cube tape dispenser from Tom Dixon. We love the copper plated finish. Simply gorgeous!


5. ‘Everything will be ok in the end’ jar, £5,
Rockett St George

It’s a pencil pot and a life mantra for desperate times in one. Never lose a pen (or your head) again. Need we say more?

6. Geronimo gunmetal chair, £290 (set of 2), Loaf

Ok, so this may not be storage as such, but we love this idea of a lightweight chair that’s totally multi-functional. This metal design would work well in a kitchen scheme or around a modern dining room table. It’s stackable design makes it easy to store, too!


7. Libertine vintage paper box file, £8.95,
Dotcomgiftshop

Practical and pretty, a decorative box file is perfect for filling with filing – and looks good in the process.


8. Okli oak desk, £650,
Habitat

Choose a desk with built-in storage and keep every thing associated with your laptop in the drawers – say goodbye to that frantic moment trying to find the power cable!

9. Menu marble white wall clock, £219, Heal’s

Stay punctual (and organised) with this understatedly cool marble wall clock. It’s minimal design will bring a touch of elegance to a simple home office scheme.


10. Step ladder shelving unit, £129,
Marks & Spencer

Stylish shelving will not only give you somewhere to store your books and accessories but can be a fab feature too if you choose a quirky design.


11. Desk organiser, £38.10, L’atelier d’excercices at
Made In Design

Keep everything you need all in one place with a good old desk organiser. We love the clean, no-fuss design of this one.
