Home Office Organization

The Martha Stewart Show, January 2011

Organizing a cluttered office space can be a tall task, but it's much less daunting with the right storage equipment.

Anduin Havens, art director for "The Martha Stewart Show," shares innovative storage solutions for any home office -- whether you're buying or DIYing.

Martha Stewart Closets
Don't let the name fool you. Our new Martha Stewart Living closet organization system from The Home Depot lets you design storage structures for any type of space, from entryways to home workstations.

The system consists of shelves, hanging bars, and whatever additional components you choose to fully customize your office space. Our online storage planner helps you choose options for shelving, file cabinets, dry-erase surfaces, and other efficiency essentials.
