Your place of employment serves as your temporary residence. You spend the majority of your day in those cardboard walls, thus the likelihood of a demotivating work routine is very high if it has no sentimental significance to you.
That is not what you want to happen. A great strategy for maintaining motivation throughout the day is to organise and decorate things in accordance with your personal taste.
We’ve compiled a collection of quick-and-easy office area decoration ideas that also fit your personality.
The primary goal of decorating your workspace is to be more organized. So start your transformation adventure by decluttering your workstation. If you’re working from home, choose a home office desk that comes with ample storage space from attached set of drawers or pedestals to upper storage shelves. Bring in a DIY board to hang all your extra and less used items on it.
It can be an ideal place to keep your weekly schedule, paste your sticky notes, or a quick to-do list of the day. Choose a board with a background that looks professional but also gives a vibe that it is yours. Go with your favorite color or a color that contrasts with the rest of the walls or sits with your corporate colours. You can also customise your office storage desk high pedestal, cupboards and desk drawers accordingly to brighten your own space.
Place all the old files in the table drawer, but in a labeled and easy to find way so that you don’t spend hours finding them when needed. Use wire organizers, hooks, keyboard brush cleaner, and other problem-solving products to make your office space clean and clutter-free.
A Private Corner
Although your office is a professional place, a little bit of personal life does not hurt anyone.
Keep a photo frame of your better half, kids, or your dog on the desk to remind yourself that you’ll be back with them by the end of the day. Having your loved ones close to you while you work tirelessly is an ideal motivator.
You can keep your favorite novels in this private corner too, which you can read during your lunch or tea breaks. Reading can take you into an imaginary world where you can live the life of your favorite story character and be free of all the office tensions.
Keep Your Cubicle Well Lit
Working in a dull environment puts your eyesight in danger. So ensure that your office cubicle is well lit, if not natural, then artificial.
Keep bright, eye-catching, and work-friendly lamps on your table to make working during the night hours convenient for you and fight office fatigue effectively.
The dull and monochromatic office lights may take you into a slumbering state, but your work table lamp with its eye-catching design and light will be enough to keep you active throughout your work hours.
Keep Indoor Plants Close
Staring at computer screens for long and continuous hours is tiring both for your physical and mental health. In addition, it takes you into a state of drowsiness where you lack productivity.
Bring some cute ceramic planters for your cubicle and place easy-to-grow indoor succulents in them to uplift your work environment. Such plants will require less care and give your eyes a fresh view to look at and feel rested.
These will not only keep the air around you fresh and moisture-free but will also give a welcome feel and environmentally friendly vibe to your spot!
Hang Motivational Quotes
A worth-mentioning idea is also hanging quotation frames: your cubicle walls may be small but not small enough to not have a couple of your favourite motivational quotes pinned to the wall or framed on your desk.
Choose a variety of quotes from the internet or brainstorm to write them yourself. Then, print them with colorful, vibrant, and creative graphics and get them framed and dotted around your office walls.
These will act as an ideal motivator and give a cheerful overall vibe to your work zone.
It’s always helpful to have a brainstorming session and doesn’t have to be confined to the meeting room! An easy way of doing this is to have a brainstorming board, corner, or wall that would be your go-to-corner when storming up ideas or strategies to achieve your goals and bring innovation to your tasks.
On a lighter note, it can be a fun place to play games like tic tac toe with your colleagues during breaks!
