This week’s Workspace of the Week is Oliver.’s art studio:
It’s difficult when you’re an artist to keep your workspace organized. As someone who spent two years of her undergraduate experience pursuing a painting degree, I can personally attest to the challenges of being neat and tidy when surrounded by so many supplies. My workspace was always a complete disaster zone, and I am in awe of artists who find a way to corral and contain all the stuff. One trick artists (and engineers and architects and anyone with a laptop) can implement to keep organized while they work is to use a standing-height, tilt-tabletop desk with storage trays attached to its sides, like Oliver. does in his studio. These desks allow you to sit in a raised chair or stand while you work, adjust the angle of your desk to best meet your ergonomic needs, as well as hold your coffee cup, phone, and whatever small supplies you need to do your job. And, when you’re done working for the day, you can unload the items and move them to their long-term storage spaces and have a clean surface ready for you the next time inspiration strikes. Thank you, Oliver., for submitting your wonderful workspace to our Unclutterer Flickr pool.

Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.
