Studies have shown that the average person can lose up to an hour each day if they don't organize things. It takes less time to get organized and stay organized than it does in trying to work in a crowded environment. The desk is the command center of any office, whether it's a workstation in a busy work environment or a single desk in a home office. The right layout can help you stay on top of things, improve physical and mental health, and significantly increase productivity.


The ideal position for a computer monitor is approximately 17 inches in front of your eyes and at the right height to view comfortably without moving your head up or down. Many of us work on laptops. Placing them on a riser and using an external keyboard will help maintain correct posture while you work. A riser can also be used for a regular monitor to create more desk space for documents, or to store the keyboard when not in use.

White space

Maintaining a blank white area on the dominant hand side will always give you a place to put papers for review or signature.


Your phone should also always be on the same side of the desk as your dominant hand. This helps avoid unnecessary twisting and twisting during the work day, which in turn helps reduce stress on your back, neck, and shoulders.

Filing system

A good filing system doesn't have to be too complex. It can be so easy to keep folders of relevant papers nearby and have a shelf or unit to store other papers. A trolley can be useful at times when things need to be moved a lot and can be conveniently pushed away when not in use.

Use the available storage space

Even the smallest desk offers enough space for the necessary work, provided that all available space is used. Cubbies and spaces under the desk can be useful for storage. Try to keep only what is being used on the desk and have space for everything else.

Minimize clutter

If you have a good clearance before attempting any desk organization, all you need to do is find a home for the things that matter. Recycle old papers, remove old coffee mugs and try to only have the things that you use now. Experts recommend having no more than three personal items on your desk to reduce the chance of getting distracted.

Organize wires

Unruly bundles of wires and trailing cables can quickly make even the cleanest rooms appear cluttered and disorganized. Use zip ties and other tools to hold the wires together as much as possible and keep them out of sight as much as possible. If there are gaps in the desk for wires to pass through, use them instead of running cables across the desktop.
