5 Tips to Helping Everyone Keep an Organized Break Room

Usually a break room isn’t just a break room—it’s a break room plus a storage room, etc.  But since it’s a room that employees go to take a break and re-energize, it’s important that the room is pleasant.  Here are some tips to help everyone on the team maintain an organized shared space:
  1. Categorize the room based on the functions of your space (all cleaning supplies should be together, all office supplies also together, etc.)
  2. Use partitions to divide the purposes of the room, keep the room feeling stress-free.  For example, try adding shelving units or curtains.
  3. Create clear labels on the outside of containers so that anyone can easily find what they are looking for, as well as restock items that are running low.
  4. Utilize vertical space with back-of-door hooks on closets and cabinets.
  5. Make a cleaning or restock schedule if necessary to keep the room looking nice. Usually reminder signs are noticed for about a week after being posted, so clear the clutter of unnecessary signs reminding people to do dishes.
