For many of us, it can make a lot of sense to spruce up our work area. For 8 hours each day, 5 days each week, about 4 weeks per month, and 12 months of the year you’re at the office. There’s a pretty good chance you spend more of your waking and productive hours at the office than you do at your own home. So why wouldn’t we put some effort into decorating the office space much like we do our homes?
While sofas and recliners would offer serious comfort for the long days at work, they aren’t exactly the most practical office furnishings! Ergonomics in the office is huge and go way beyond your imagination. When it comes to comfort and practically in the workplace, take a good lake at what’s available today. From office chairs that are large inflated balls, to standing desks, being at work doesn’t mean you have to sit still for hours on end.
Did you know that sunlight is a natural mood booster? Being in the middle of a field of cubicles or in a windowless office all day doesn’t mean you can’t stay in touch with nature. Take a look at the wide choices of affordable lamps and lightbulbs that actually simulate the bright sunlight. To further brighten your office space and your long days at the office, bring in a few plants. Don’t worry if your office doesn’t have a ton of sunlight, there are varieties of plants that do perfectly well without direct sunlight.
You can easily transform your boring cork board into a fun personalized wall space. Line your cork board with wrapping paper or scrapbooking paper for a unique backdrop. Think about using trim to add stand-out dazzle to the edges of your white board. Fun, decorative pushpins and colorful whiteboard markers are the perfect finishing touch for wall boards.
Don’t relegate your unwanted or boring accessories to the office, after all, you’ll have to stare at these things for 8 hours every day. Consider upgrading items such as coffee mugs, pens, pen holders, note cubes, organizers, and candy dishes to things that are more fun, modern, and exciting.
