Slowly but surely I’m making progress on my home office! While some of these items only apply for bloggers, anyone who works from home or has a craft room can benefit from these tips.
You can head over to my home office inspiration post before diving into this one, to get an idea of my starting point.
Not too much has changed since deciding to redo our spare guest bedroom into my office space. However there are a few things that I’ve discovered are an absolute necessity.
Home Office Must-Haves
Storage: The closet space is still a work in progress so I won’t go into that too much. When I upgraded my desk situation, I lost all of my storage. I planned to stick important documents in a decorative box, but I’ve realized it’s time for a small file cabinet. I like that it’s small enough to fit under my desk!

Bookcase: Shelves are a great place to organize important items and showcase trinkets. For me though, I’m using a large bookcase to store my photography props, “blog” plates, and boards.
I also have a sample section where products for me to try are on display. I love that my bookcase has doors with windows, so I can keep track of everything!
Craft table: Of course not everybody needs this in their home office space. I have my table next to the window, which makes it easy for snapping quick pictures or record videos.
Cozy corner: Last but not least, my relaxation station! I’m so excited for this corner to be completed. Over the past few years of blogging, when I have someone proofread something on my computer, I’m left standing or dragging a chair in from the other room. This corner will provide a space for me to respond to comments comfortably, read, and recharge!
I’m currently waiting for my pink chair and extra basket to arrive. Once they get set up, I will be completing my cozy corner and hopefully hanging some artwork on the walls.
I really need to get additional storage bins for the closet, so the space is more functional.
Lastly, I have to part ways with sentimental trash! I have so much junk piling up that I either need to stick in a box to get it out of eyesight, or just dump it.
I’m excited for the rest of my items to arrive and share my full home office reveal with y’all! I’d love to know your thoughts. Let’s chat in the comments!
