5 Strategies To Maximize Your Small Office Space

July 3, 2019

To help you make the most out of your small workspace and keep the clutter under control, consider the following tips you can use to clear your cubicles and your head.

  1. Be less reliant on paper. Paper waste builds up in a small workplace. Even if you have a filing system that you can use, things can get lost. In fact, 7.5% of all paper documents are lost completely. Document management services help you rely less on paper while giving you more control over your documents.
  2. Organize like your work depends on it. Clutter is your nemesis in a small office space. Not only does it slow you down physically but mentally as well. To help get things under control, use hanging filing systems for your cubicle wall and stackable shelving on your desk. This will keep everything visible but out of your way and more organized.
  3. Think vertically. Small office spaces work similarly to small homes. What little square footage you have can be maximized by using the vertical space on your walls. Look into tall bookshelves or install organization systems that improve the efficiency of your workplace rather than making it feel clunky.
  4. Use cable tags. It can get confusing to have a million cables surrounding your desk and the floor around it. To keep things from getting tangled up, label each of the cables so you know which cord goes to which equipment.
  5. Get rid of inefficient printers. Managed print services can help you optimize your printing systems so you don't need to have multiple copiers and printers in your small workspace.
