Office Decoration Tips

Quarantine and everything that has happened over the past year and more has impacted us in many ways. Transitioning from the home office to your office might be an adjustment, but it’s also an opportunity to decorate your office space to make it feel a bit more like home. 

The truth is having a comfortable and inviting workspace plays a considerable role in our overall mood. Not to mention, we’re known to be more productive when the space around us reflects our aesthetic and environment. Things like a pop of color with a rug, a statement piece like a vase, or small decorative accents can transform your office space. 

Read on for some office decor tips and ideas to give your space the refresh it so desperately needs. 

1. Add Some Art

Connect with a local artist to get a personalized wall art piece in your office. Don’t have wall space in your cubicle? Don’t worry! Having small art pieces on your desk can add a touch of color, showcase your personality, and support local artists as a bonus point. 

2. Stay With the Brand Colors

Use your brand colors to maintain the brand’s identity and create a cohesive look. Of course, you can add personal touches to your work desk and area, but try to stay with the brand colors to prevent clashing with the rest of the office. 

3. Use Mirrors

Mirrors can be an excellent way to make any place more elegant, so have a few of them installed in different sizes throughout the office. Not to mention, mirrors can help reflect light and give the appearance of more space. And, as if that wasn’t enough if your desk is looking into a wall, having a mirror can give the illusion of having a window. 

4. Bring In Greenery

Even if they’re fake, houseplants can bring the outdoors indoors and make the office space feel more amicable. Having plants in the workplace has been shown to improve productivity, help with anxiety, and reduce stress – all bonus points to add more greenery. 

5. Don’t Forget About Ergonomics

Just because an office chair or desk is pretty, does it mean it belongs in the office. Odds are you’ll spend about 8 hours of your day in this space, so make sure the chairs, desks, and other furniture pieces are ergonomically designed. Luckily for you, many ergonomically friendly pieces already come with unique designs. 

 

When designing an office space, it’s essential to find the perfect balance between corporate image and personalization. Keep these office decoration tips in mind and, at last, create the office space that makes you feel the happiest.
