These days it truly seems that less is more, as people everywhere are gravitating toward adapting a minimalist lifestyle. What does that mean exactly? Well, it’s all about living with less, getting rid of excess, and organizing (and appreciating) what you have.
“Does it Spark Joy?” That’s a question organizational guru Marie Kondo asks her clients on the Netflix hit, “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.” The show features inspiring home makeovers, all fueled by the premise of eliminating items that don’t bring her clients joy and satisfaction. The result? Happy clients who feel lighter and happier after reducing clutter and organizing their spaces.
This philosophy makes perfect sense at work. Since we spend a third of our lives in our 9 to 5 endeavors, organizing the workplace can not only enhance efficiency and enable us to work smarter, it can also make for a better state of mind. And while minimalist living might be a little extreme for some, there are proven benefits toward reducing clutter and creating a tidy space.
Can cluttered workspaces lower a company’s bottom line?
Yes, according to a study by the National Association of Professional Organizers. Researchers found that cluttered workspaces can lead to a company’s financial loss equivalent to 10% of a manager’s salary. It’s essential for your productivity — and your mental health — to keep your workspace clutter-free. And while it may seem overwhelming, the incentive to start organizing is undeniable.
And this is where Herman Miller’s Tu Storage comes in.
Available to dental offices through CenterPoint Design and Benco Dental, Tu Storage is a modernized and personalized take on storage that accommodates the items people actually use. It keeps things for working and living nearby, so people have a more personal connection to their work and the workplace. In that way, Tu is an essential ingredient in tailoring individual workpoints to best support the work people do.
Another study done by the National Association of Professional Organizers showed that being organized will save you 60 minutes a day. Imagine how efficient you would be if you could find all the things that you were looking for, and didn’t get distracted?
Styles that seamlessly fit any décor
Tu is comprehensive in its material offering. Metal, laminate, and veneer finishes pair with metal and wood cases in a range of combinations. This visual versatility allows Tu to take on appearances from highly functional to warmly residential, allowing it to work in nearly any interior. As with all Herman Miller products, Tu has a thoughtfully-considered palette that contributes to enhancing the experience of people working together.
Supporting the work
Tu Storage is an essential element for creating settings that support people’s work activities. It lets individuals easily store and access their belongings, both work tools and personal items, whether they have assigned workpoints or they use unassigned desks on a drop-in basis. And it all comes with a 12-year, 3-shift warranty.
In a blog published by Chron, author Devra Gartenstein says “Keeping your workplace organized isn’t just a matter of finding permanent places for essential items and instructing employees to replace them there. Workplace organization is a state of mind that takes ongoing work and thought.”
