An entrepreneur’s journey often begins at home, starting small and building momentum as things start to fall into place. This can mean operating out of a home office or even a garage, which is ideal if you are looking to begin relatively risk free with little budget.

Your work environment and surroundings influences your productivity, and can positively or negatively affect your work. So it’s important that the space around you motivates you to be productive, especially if you are just starting out.

Decluttering your working space at home will help you to stay focused and not be distracted by mess and clutter. Here are some tips to help you along.

  1. Declutter

Begin with a thorough clean out of your cupboards, drawers and shelves. It is easier to approach this systematically, one area at a time. Consider donating any items which you no longer have a use for. An alternative solution is to make use of self storage for any items you may need in the future, or which hold too much sentimental value to get rid of.

  1. Make use of vertical space

Many people never think to utilise their overhead space, and completely ignore it. Look up and go the vertical route! You will open up your floor and create more space within your home office. There are plenty of vertical shelving options online.

  1. Multi-purpose furniture

Once you’ve opened up your floor space it’s time to get creative with the extra room you’ve created. If you don’t have separate areas for an office and living room, use the right layout and furniture to combine them into one room. A quick Google search for multi-purpose furniture will give you plenty of options.

  1. Choosing the right storage containers 

Choosing the right storage containers is important, but just make sure they are not too bulky. You also need to decide where to store your containers. By making sure they are stackable, you will be able to make use of the vertical space mentioned above.
