Sometimes your office is so messy you just have to start from scratch. Today's featured office is a testament to the power of dumping a room inside out and starting over.
Lifehacker reader The Real Klamer had an office in his home he intended to use as a home office but it never quite got past the overwhelming-mess stage.
Finally he'd had enough and he dragged every last thing out of the office, painted the walls, purchased some new blinds, and then carefully considered what he wanted in the space before allowing anything else back into it.
Now his home office houses just the necessities and has a soothing and understated colour scheme, a world of difference from the messy and generically-coloured room he started with—a state it might not ever have reached if he hadn't started with an empty room.
