Some people spend more time in their office, than their home. Our workplace should keep us motivated and productive during the long working hours. However, offices often have a plain and boring look, which is why it is a good idea to bring some life into them with decorations and accessories that will suit your style. In this article, we will give you 5 tips on how to decorate your workspace, but keep in mind that all companies have their rules and guidelines about the look of the working area, and you should always follow them.
Step by Step Instructions
The first thing you need to keep in mind when decorating your workspace is that it needs to look professional and clean. Your clients and coworkers are the ones that come into your office as well, not only you. You should repaint your office door (if the paint is worn out) and put some plants at the entrance, so your office looks more inviting. But don’t encumber your work area with plants and pictures on the walls. Keep it clean and open, so your clients leave with a good first impression.
Don’t use typical office supplies
In most workplaces, you can find generic office pencil holders, cups for paper clips, staplers, etc. But if you use vintage accessories instead of typical office-supply desk set, you can make your desk a bit more interesting. Try using decorated glasses or vases as your pencil holders, or some stylish dishes to hold your paper clips. There are many ways to replace your desk supplies – just pick the ones you like and start decorating.
Get rid of the clutter
Over time, your desk and work area will become cluttered with huge piles of paper, file boxes and other things you use daily. We know that organizing files can take a lot of time and effort but, once you are finished, your office will look like new. If you don’t have a basement or archive where you can store all the unnecessary paperwork, or you need those files in your office, you should create stylish DIY storage boxes for the files. These boxes will help you clean your office and bring some style to it.
