Look at them! Just standing there... There is no reason why your walls couldn't be put to better use. Whip them into shape with a few of our ideas that will help you organize, de-clutter, and enhance your office environment. Small spacers take heed, not only is your square footage valuable but your wall space is too!

Use Your Notes as D├ęcor
So you're not keen on bright white walls or already have valuable notes taken down on pads. Well, it might be worthwhile to open yourself up to the possibility of utilizing those manic scrawlings as a decorative element in your space. Anthropologie thinks it's possible and so do we!

Chalkboard Paint on Your Walls
Of course, there is the (now classic) option to black out the home office with chalkboard paint. We think this solution is very elegant and provides a lot of adaptability for the various uses that your home office fulfills.

Project Your Work
If your computer screen is just too small or you need to see a graphic or movie in a larger scale, setting up a simple projection system might be very beneficial. You can use the bare wall or opt for a screen which you can retract as desired. This usually doubles as a very entertaining element in your space after work hours, as well.

Organize with Shelves and Boards
We have a helpful roundup of shelving systems that fit all styles, budgets, and spaces. Whether you need a modular, full-wall system or a simple board to pin your notes to, we've got you covered.
