In a perfect world, your office would look like it belongs in a glossy magazine. A stylish desk would flow effortlessly from the wall with carefully placed plants and apparently no work to do. Of course, in the real world, this isn’t generally how offices work.
Your office is probably very functional and, despite the digital age, full of paperwork. It probably isn’t that glamorous. However, the good news is that you can transform your office and you don’t need to spend a fortune to do so!
Here are five easy ways to improve your office décor and enjoy being at work again.
Pale colors tend to be cooler and darker colors are warmer. But, there’s more to colors than simply warmth or coldness. Blue hues are thought to help with stimulating your mind, greens are best for concentration, and yellows help you to feel inspired.
Choose your color wisely as you’ll be staring at it every day.
Use Indoor Plants
Plants are an essential part of the environment. They absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, that’s the opposite of what humans do and makes the plant a useful, if not essential addition to your office.
Plants are also known to boost productivity and make you feel more positive. You’ll want to speak to a specialist to choose a plant that is easy to maintain. This will help you to keep it alive and for it to lift your spirits.
Of course, you also need to choose the perfect indoor plant pots, these will accentuate your plants and ensure they go with the décor and feel of the office.
Add Storage Solutions
One of the biggest issues facing most office workspaces is the level of work. Being swamped all the time means that paperwork piles up and clutters your office. It’s actually very easy to address this issue. You simply need to create a good storage system.
That means neat boxes built into walls or a shelving unit that allows you to store everything according to where it is in your work process. By using the storage system you’ll find that your desk is much clearer. This will make it easier for you to get on with your own job. It will also help your office look more like it belongs in that magazine.
Use Rugs To Define Space
When you’re in an office environment it can be hard to define the different areas, such as your workspace, the refreshment area, or any number of other spaces that are commonly found in offices.
The best way to improve the décor and embrace the different areas of your office is to add rugs. These should be colorful and thick, adding a sense of luxury while matching your existing décor.
Change the Furniture
Finally, you can go a step further and change the furniture in your office. A tidy desk and chair can be replaced with modern, state of the art, items. You’ll be surprised at how much difference this makes to your office.
