If you have your own office space at home, it's important that you make it one that is comfortable to work in.

An office that is also a part time storage room is less than ideal, with clutter and disorganisation having the potential to badly affect your working routine.

Clear up the mess and get inspired with these simple DIY design ideas.

Pinup a memo board

You can clear up a lot of space on your desk by simply using a memo board!

Instead of having a desk calendar you can have one stuck to your memo board, also placing important notes, reminders and documents, business cards, and maybe even inspirational quotes and images.

There are also memo boards that come attached with chalk or whiteboards - perfect for writing your daily to-do lists!

Install floating shelves

This quirky storage solution can help to clear clutter from the desk while also giving a funky new look to your office.

You can place two floating shelves directly above your desktop, setting your office necessities - stationary, software, filing folders - on top.

A touch of green

Engage in a little garden DIY, by employing an indoor plant for your office!

English ivy is said to be great for areas where the air has "gotten stale and dry" with those who have a desire for cleaner air suggested to give this plant a try.

Add to the appeal of your room, by getting it attached to a hanging basket in front of your window!
