The space you work in matters. From what is placed on the desk to the art on the walls, both looks and function contribute to how you feel in the workspace. Whether you work in a private suite with sweeping views or have a smaller dedicated desk in a coworking area, you can still outfit your space to optimize for success at work. Here’s how to do it:
1. Clear the Clutter
Get rid of everything that is not serving you anymore! Cleaning your space will allow you to have a fresh start. Plus, you’ll be reminded of what needs to stay handy and what goes straight to the paper shredder. Learn more about how to easily clear the clutter from your workspace here.
2. Organize Away
It is not enough to simply have less stuff- organization is essential to having a productive day, free of the frustrations that come with misplacing necessary items. We’ve taken inspiration from “The Home Edit” on Netflix and utilize their tips to create a functional space. You can learn more about organizing your workspace for success in this blog post.
3. Shop New Pieces
Is the same furniture and decor that you’ve been staring at for years just not cutting it anymore? With a return to in-person work, there is no better time to modernize your space. Perhaps you are ready for something to keep you active, such as a standing desk, foot peddler, or aerobic ball chair. Or, maybe it is time to bring your office look into 2021 by adding in tall plants, modern acrylic furniture, colorful rugs, and sleek desk accessories. You can even create a “smart” office by hooking up a Google Home Mini or Alexa device to lightbulbs, computers, and more. What is easier than things getting done by the sound of your voice?
4. Add Personal Flair
Ultimately, your office is still a reflection of who you are! Don’t be afraid to get a little personal. Having things that remind you of life outside of the office can help keep you motivated and on track during the day. Family photos, mementos from vacations, or trinkets that represent hobbies are all ways to incorporate yourself into the space.
Another great way to add flair is through art! A tasteful and professional way to decorate, revealing a bit about who you are without being too personal. Click here for art ideas that can liven up your space.
