Look around your home office. Do you notice a lot of unused blank walls? Don't let that valuable space go to waste, consider moving things from the floor to the wall. When working within a small space, any little gain here or there can make a huge difference. Here are three tips to use the walls from your desks to your monitors and your storage.
Mount your monitor on your wall: Gain back precious desk space by mounting your monitor on the wall. This not only clears up the clutter in your workspace but also allows you to use a much more shallow desk, and as we all know anything helps when we've got a small space to work with.

Mount your desk on your wall: Getting your desk up off the floor and onto the wall saves quite a bit of floor space and works especially well with a wall mounted monitor. A flip out drawer creates more space when you need it and tucks away neatly when you don't, not to mention hides your mess.
