The upper cabinets can be used to store your desktop accessories and stationery for easy reach. Bigger equipment such as printers can be strategically positioned in a corner at arm’s length for easy reach. Try to keep your desktop free; only your computer should be on the desktop. Other items should be returned to the cabinets, boxes or trays after use, to ensure that your workspace is always free from clutter.
