Infographic: How To Organise Your Home Writing Cabinet

Aug 12, 2015 1 Min Read

Writing is an endeavour that requires a high level of concentration, which is why a dedicated place to work is always a good idea.

A personal writing cabinet is a great idea for anyone who loves to write.

Having a dedicated space for writing is just half the battle, as an organised space is one that tends to lend itself to creativity, productivity, and inspiration. Good home writing workplace organisation can help you achieve all of your goals.

There is a belief that writing from home is easier, but it’s worth remembering that there are distractions to be found there, too. You can certainly increase your productivity levels if you have a writing space that is neat, tidy, and well organised.

OmniPapers have created a fantastic infographic that serves as a cheat sheet of sorts for those with an interest in home writing workplace organisation. Knowing where to begin is half the battle, so consider these tips when preparing to write from home:

  1. Setting up your writing desk.

    There are a number of elements that can help improve your space and your productivity. A good desk lamp is a must, as are stickers and paper for taking notes. A cup of green tea can keep your mind and body active and energised, which is excellent for writing.

  2. Invest in a good PC.

    An all-in-one PC (personal computer) delivers the best of both worlds, and saves you from having to decide between a laptop and a PC. The lack of messy wires is also a bonus.

  3. Cabinet organisation.

    Create a pair of different zones – computer and non-computer work – and think about wall colour choices, as certain hues and tones promote comfort and health. When you are in a comfortable space, writing seems to come that much easier.
