How To Declutter And Create A Spick And Span Workspace
A moderately clean and orderly workspace frees the way for higher productivity and limited consumed time. Moreover, tidying up your office doesn’t have to take days; in fact, it can take a shorter time as long as you handle it like a project – instead of a tedious task.
Piles of files, papers, trapped wires and boxes of material lying around may not seem like clutter at the very start. But over time, it becomes a physical strain when you consider the time spent seeking for things and searching into every box and jumbled drawers. Disordered files and mixing are just as big of a problem.
Whether it is obvious to the eye or not, clutter may be stressing your employees out. And what plays a significant role in these aspects are interiors and office design. Keep reading on, and we’ll show you a few ideas to help make your workspace more functional and productive.
Do the practice of eliminating junk
A workspace that is clean, tidy and well-designed can boost your employee’s day tremendously. Particularly because it helps to create a better environment; stress-free and minimal distraction for staff to effectively bring up office productivity. Make it a habit to remove any mess or litter – such as plastic bags, used paper and even little messes such as eraser dust. All these will accumulate and eventually create a huge mess and affect the office environment.
To ensure any of such clutter does not pop up; you have to do your part in cleaning your own desk and remind the rest of your team. On the other hand, if you’re looking to store important office documents or office necessities – a self storage may be the answer for you if you’re still searching for a suitable workspace! We have the cheapest self storages which start at 6 sq ft to 730 sq ft and come with all-inclusive rates so there won’t be any additional facility or utility fees. For cases where you are looking for an alternative space for business purposes, we also offer flexible lease terms such as short term lease, contract transfer to other kinds of products or services within Work+Store or our parent company, LHN Group, comprising commercial and industrial units, event venues, vending machine spots and serviced offices and apartments.
Clean up your implicit desktop
Decluttering just applies to physical clutter or mess – clearing your desktop from time to time is equally important. Things like icons, wallpaper, windows, folders, toolbars, widgets, and so forth should be regularly checked and removed if you have no need for them anymore.
Try eliminating the ones you don’t want and make everything cropped down. Work on the apps required on the desktop. Decluttering your desktop helps to have a clear view of the screen and increases your productivity at work.
Emphasise on comfortability
To increase employee happiness, designing a healthy and comfortable office environment is very important. Minor investments can modify your office into a more productive workspace. Making a comfortable environment doesn’t only include a work station or cosy chair – other facilities you should have consist of adequate ventilation and lighting are just as necessary.
Sort, move or store office furniture or belongings temporarily in existing storage facilities if you still have a need for them later on. Or you could also search for an alternative workspace such as a self-storage. Aside from already equipped facilities for your employees, accessibility plays a key role in terms of their convenience. At Work+Store, our workspaces are located all across Singapore consisting of Ang Mo Kio, Upper Thomson, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Pasir Panjang, Tampines, Bartley, Bukit Merah, Kallang and Aljunied.

Label the cords
Store all manuals in one place and use a labeller to keep shelves organised, especially on cables, cords. Using labels is not a requirement in creating an organised place, but it is useful. Adding labels, names, tags to an organised space will avoid miss-match of device connection. Additionally, it helps in identifying cords for the specific item quickly to get it charged up. The coloured label can also be useful in not twisting the wires.
Incorporating simple refurbishment solutions to maintain a tidy and clutter-free workspace doesn’t just boost office productivity but increases employee satisfaction as well. Organise items, overcome clutter and create a well-organised workspace which makes for a happier environment.
