Whether in the office or working from home, a tidy workspace helps stay organised and stay productive throughout the day, and we can help with ways to organise the under-desk drawer.
At Lavoro Design, we provide under-desk storage to place and store all work equipment, documents, and any other clutter in there while working at a height adjustable desk.
Being disorganised and not keeping the workstation clean can easily interrupt the working day. Many struggle with keeping their desk drawers tidy; that’s why we’ve come up with desk drawer organisation ideas to help maintain a productive workspace.
The Vault under desk drawers are available in our original 3 colours: black, silver, white.
Read on to know ways to organise an under-desk drawer at a workstation…
Clearing out clutter
Removing everything from the desk drawers enables users to have a good look at all the contents and be strict when it comes to deciding what is needed. This then gives the user the opportunity to get rid of any unnecessary clutter
Prioritise the space
When putting items back, put in the items used the most. This tends to include car keys, phone, stationery, or notepads. The under-desk drawer is the easiest to get to and will save reaching down to a bag or the desk for the most-used items.
Organise by function
Separating objects in the desk drawer by function makes it easy to know exactly where to go for different items. These categories could be:
- Mobile phone
- Other personal belongings
By keeping things tidy and organised in the under-desk, it will be easier to access things when working at the desk!
Don’t worry about space
Empty spaces in the under-desk drawer, shows an excellent job of organising. Don’t feel the need to fill it with other items. Empty space is good for efficiency and productivity, making it easier to find what is needed.
Wrap up loose wires
Loose wires are a a hazard as well as making it hard to distinguish between wires. Messy cables can take up a lot of the space available in desk drawers. Wrapping them up in ties is a great organisation idea. This will keep all the wires together, allowing the space to be used wisely and also by labeling them it’ll help to remember what each of them is used for.
Paper can often take up a large part of desk drawer storage. Going paperless can be a smart way to save space and keep the desk drawer organised. Taking notes and saving documents on your laptop leaves the desk drawer for more important items.
