How to keep your home office clean. This article shares tips on how to tidy up your home office and inspire better efficiency and performance at work.

There are so many advantages in WFH (working from home) however, unlike the standard office setting where there are janitors and custodians who are responsible for the workplace cleanliness and proper maintenance of office furniture and equipment, working from home makes it your sole responsibility to keep your workplace tidy and organized.

Why bother cleaning your home office if your boss or clients don’t come and visit your home? Well, an organized and clean work space can have a huge impact on your mood as well as work productivity. 

The following are useful tips in keeping your home office clean and clutter-free.

1. Clean As You Go

The first tip is to spend a few minutes to clean up the desk after every work session.

Your morning’s mood sets the tone for the rest of the day. When you sit down to work in a crisp and clean environment it sets you up for a great day ahead.

2. Less Stuff, Minimum Clutter

Practice minimalism in the office too!

Whether paper clips, pens, stationery or rubber erasers everything should be organized and kept in its proper place. However, it would be impossible to do so if you have dozens of each item! Avoid the temptation to shop for bundles of everything just because of a sale or deal.

3. Designate a Place for Gadgets

Don’t just leave your tablet, smartphone and other tech gears lying around your desk, chair or just-anywhere… find a spot near your desk (or maybe you can have a shelf beside your computer table) where you can stow your gadgets while you are working. 

All you need is access to charging and a way to cover or keep them out of view so they don’t add to your clutter.

4. Keep Windows Squeaky Clean

A clear window = a clear mind. Let the most amount of light in and keep dinge out of view.

At least once a week, clean your windows. Pro tip: To make them really shine, use a soft cloth as the last step to “polish”.

You can even make DIY window spray in a pinch (or to be eco-friendly) by mixing 1 glass of water with 2 tablespoons of vinegar. 


If you have a clean and orderly home office, working will be much more comfortable and will make you happier for the rest of the day.
