How To Organise Your Workspace – 5 Essential Tips

Are you tired of seeing your desk cluttered with paperwork and splattered with coffee rings?

No one likes a messy workstation, yet most of us are guilty of letting our work area accumulate the dust and debris of everyday life. Whether you’re working in a traditional office setting or remotely from home, it’s important to maintain a clean and organised workspace. Not only does it boost productivity and morale, but it also helps to keep you healthy by reducing the number of germs on your desk.

In fact, did you know that the average desk contains 400 times more germs than a toilet seat?!

Research reveals that more than two-thirds of office workers are at risk of sickness due to unsanitary desks, significantly increasing the likelihood of absences, so maintaining a clean desk is an important measure of health.

To help you out, we’ve compiled our 5 best tips on how to organise your workspace for optimum efficiency and productivity.

 

The Koble Silas 3.0 is a contemporary smart desk that has integrated technology including wireless charging, 1 x USB charging point, 1 x USB-C charging point and Bluetooth speakers with touch sensitive controls.

 

Digitise lists and notes

With the abundance of technology at our fingertips, paper clutter still accumulates at an alarming rate. When it comes to lists, reminders and to-dos, why not keep them stored in a digital format? Not only is this an easy way to maintain cleanliness and organisation, but it can help increase your productivity, efficiency and help you avoid distractions.

 

How to Prevent Scratches

One of the most common complaints from people with workstations is that the surface of the desk often gets scratched.

Scratches and marks on your work surface can be more than just frustrating; they can detract from the overall aesthetic of your office and can also be a source of disruption to your workflow.

To maintain a professional and inviting workspace, it is important to keep your work surface free of scratches and marks.

To prevent this from happening, make sure to always use a mouse pad and never place hot items directly onto the desk.

Our favourite product for preventing scratches is the Paradise Row Desk Mat and matching Pencil Pot. This contemporary leather duo not only protects your desk from scratches but also adds a stylish touch to any workspace. Perfect for busy professionals and creative visionaries alike, this leather pair is sure to turn heads.

Looking for the ultimate protection for your home office desk?

You can also use adhesive furniture protectors or felt strips on the desk to protect the surface.

 

Keep your desk tidy and organised with the Paradise Row contemporary leather pencil pot or pair it with the luxury matching desk mat to create a beautiful gift set or ultimate home office setup.

How to clean up after spillage

No matter how careful you are, accidents happen! A spillage on your desk can happen at any time, and often leads to a huge mess and stress, so it’s important to have the right cleaning products handy in order to tackle them quickly and easily.

Keep in mind it is essential to avoid any liquid spills near desks with electrical components.

To prevent any potential damage, we recommend keeping hot beverages away from these areas and using a flask or bottle with a secure lid.

In the event of a spilt drink first, carefully, and quickly remove the spilt cup and any objects on your desk to prevent further damage.

Next using absorbent paper towels mop up the spill, avoiding sweeping liquid towards electrical components.

Once the liquid is removed use a high-quality cleaning spray and a microfibre cloth, to prevent abrasions and clean up any residue or potential markings.

To prevent damage from accidental spills, invest in a desk with a glass top for easy cleaning. The ORKA Jupiter Desk is the ideal choice for those prone to spills, boasting a sleek black design and a wipeable glass top that can be quickly and easily cleaned in the event of a mishap.

 

 

The Oskar Height Adjustable Desk from Koble Designs, a retro design with a mahogany effect desktop and black frame finish. Sit or stand at your chosen height from 75cm to 125cm. Technical features include 4 memory settings, 1 USB port, and 1 USB-C port.

 

Avoiding eating at your desk

Eating or snacking at your desk might seem like a good idea to get more done. But it can actually result in bacteria growth causing sickness and even days off.

Think about it this way, your keyboard is a journal of months (maybe years) worth of snacks and lunches.

So, take a break away from your desk for lunch and break up the monotony of the workday by giving yourself that much-needed respite.

To maintain hygiene at your desk we highly recommend investing in a high-quality keyboard cleaner spray. Investing in a quality keyboard cleaner spray is an easy and cost-effective way to keep your workspace clean and hygienic.

Do you want to take your cleaning routine to the next level? Invest in a keyboard cleaning kit to remove crumbs and other snacking debris quickly and easily or stay on top of the latest trends with interior cleaning slime!

 

The slim and modern Dell Full Size Keyboard & Mouse set in Black and Silver gives comfort all day with the height-adjustable keyboard, numeric touchpad and easy to switch between 3 devices with the toggle button on the mouse.

 

How to clean a white desk

White desks can look wonderful in any home office, but they require special care to prevent dirt and staining, so it’s important to clean them often to restore their sparkle.

Start by dusting the surface using a microfiber cloth. To give your desk a deeper clean, use a non-abrasive cleaning product such as a multipurpose cleaner or all-purpose cleaner. Spray the solution onto a cloth rather than directly onto your desk and gently wipe across the desk surface.

Alternatively, use disinfectant wipes to quickly and effortlessly eliminate any dirt and grime. These wipes are an effective and efficient way to keep surfaces clean and hygienic.

To clean and remove dirt from those hard-to-reach areas you may need to use a soft-bristled toothbrush.

This process should be repeated at least once a month to keep your white desk looking bright and shiny.

How to organise your workspace for optimum space. 

Not everyone has the privilege of having a spacious desk and workspace, especially when working remotely. One of the challenges of having a tidy desk is finding ways to make the most of limited space.

A few clever storage solutions can make all the difference, so make sure to invest in a desk with drawers.

For ultimate storage, we recommend our Ola Desk, which provides two deep and spacious drawers, perfect for storing away important documents, a small laptop, or even an iPad.

For a sleeker and techier design, opt for Koble Designs Lana Desk, featuring an integrated storage drawer and cutting-edge features.

 

The Ola Height Adjustable Desk from Koble Designs, a stylish and modern design that combines maple wood and classic white to create an elegant piece of furniture for your home’s aesthetic.

 

Alternatively invest in storage boxes, file organisers or a multi-tiered tray for small items such as pens, scissors, and notepads, and try to store them away as much as possible in drawers.

For the ultimate workspace, pair your height-adjustable desk with a Buro Glide storage drawer. This under-desk storage solution provides the perfect balance of convenience and organisation.

To keep your desk organised make sure that you declutter your workspace on a regular basis to prevent a build-up of papers, rubbish and old notes.

 

The Buro Glide 3 Drawer Pedestal is a high-quality storage unit on castors designed to fit perfectly under all Buro height adjustable desks even on the lowest height setting thanks to its 53.5cm height.

 

Summary

Now you have all the tips and tricks for how to organise your workspace, it’s time to get to work.

Keeping your desk tidy and organised is easier than you think!

Keep liquids in sealed containers, abstain from consuming meals at your workstation, digitise documents and notes, and invest in efficient storage solutions to prevent mess and disorganisation.

Make sure to always keep your working space clean, neat and tidy to maximise your productivity and minimise your stress levels!

Amazing. I love this desk! It’s a great size, and sturdy. The charging ports and wireless charging mean I don’t need as many wires or plugs as well. The mechanism is smooth and quiet. Delivery was super easy and timely!
