5 Practical Tips to Decorating Your Office Space

Companies / SME Nov 03, 2018 - 02:06 PM GMT

By: Dylan_Moran

Companies

You probably don’t have time to think about how your office should look, but at the same time, you know that it has to look good because it represents your business. Of course, you and your team spend a good chunk of your day in this space and you’d want it to feel less claustrophobic and more conducive for productivity.

If you cringe at the thought of doing a full office makeover because of the expenses, you’d be glad to know that a few changes here and there can already do wonders to your office space. To get you started, here are five practical tips that are easy to follow and most importantly, easy on your pocket:


1. Add a pop of character to your space with wallpaper.

Most offices come with those standard white walls, which can make the space look dull and boring. Imagine staring at those walls for most of the day, trying to find inspiration for work. Repainting the entire office may prove to be expensive because you need to pay for the paint and labor.

So, if you don’t have the budget for it, why not go with wallpaper instead? Cut the monotony of the space by adding a custom wall mural from WallpaperInk. You could go for something simple or go bold with the design. Choose a prominent wall to place your wall mural and make it the focal point of your office.

2. Invest in good lighting.

Good lighting is not only essential for productivity; it is also a good way to set the mood for your space. Maximize natural light by keeping windows clean and making sure that they’re not blocked or covered by heavy drapes. Invest in additional lighting for darker areas in your office and choose stylish lamps for tables. Good lighting can easily make your office feel more welcoming, which is a good way to make clients feel comfortable and more receptive to your ideas.

3. Find ways to keep the clutter out.

No matter how expensive your décor are, if your office is filled with clutter, it will still feel claustrophobic and busy. While you might not be able to get rid of papers entirely, you can always find ways to organize files through a proper system.

Invest in organizers that will help you sort those papers and make it easy to find what you’re looking for. Look for cabinets and shelves that offer good storage spaces for books, products and office supplies. Also, make use of furniture that double as storage like stools and tables so you can save money. Finally, keep your things to a minimum. Buy only what you will use and keep only what you will need.

4. Let the greenery in.

Let’s face it; your office could use some green in it. Plants are a fresh addition to any space because they’re alive and real. Aside from adding color to your office, plants also help relax the mind and make your space more conducive to productivity. Look for plants that don’t require constant care and can survive without direct sunlight. Some good options include jade plant, bromeliads, snake plant, golden pathos and succulents.

5. Make a concrete plan.

So, you’re already inspired and ready to start drilling holes and shopping for décor. Don’t do it just yet. If you really want to succeed in decorating your space, you need to make a concrete plan first. How do you want the office to look like? Do you have a theme in mind? Are you working on a tight budget?

Consider all of these factors before heading out to buy new furniture or order new wallpaper. Collate images of your design pegs, create a floor plan and come up with a list of things that you need for the space. You will thank yourself later on for having a guide that will let you avoid buying things that you don’t need and drilling holes that you will have to live with for a long time.

Remember that your office is where your ideas are born and where they are turned to reality. So, it’s only fitting that you make it look good and conducive for productivity.
