These are testing times and to find optimism in this is the only way to survive. We know how dreadful it could be to work from home and so we are here with tips to make your space transform into something a little more pleasant and work friendly. Step into a space that motivates you to work better.
Hang a wire to display Pictures
Sure, frames do the trick, but they also add to the clutter. Not only is a photo wire fun to stare at, but it’ll help you distract from those awful thoughts and get back to reality. It will make your space more personal and customized.
Bring in some Greenery
Plants are an easy way to brighten up your desk and make you feel accomplished every day (Did I water it today? Yes? Check!”). And bonus: Some types can actually purify the air in your office. If you don’t think your gardening abilities are up to par, try a low-maintenance variety, like succulents.
Brighten up the Space
The correct amount of lighting plays a very important role in any setting, specially workspace. Make sure you have ample of light. Add a table lamp to maximize the light source. A dull environment makes up for a dull mood.
Add a writing/ pin-up Board
Instead of tacking papers to the wall or taping passwords to the side of your computer, use a writing board or a pin-up board to keep memos close by. Or make it more fun by using them to display uplifting quotes or messages that’ll keep you going all day long.
Skip business-y Furniture
There’s no rule that says a desk can’t be a repurposed dining table and an “office” chair can’t be a shapely wingback chair. Approach your home office with the same decorating gusto you’d pump into your boudoir or living room. Use techniques such as matching pairs, fanciful finishes, and a gallery wall to conjure up a space that is functional but also feeds your creativity.
Even if you're crunching numbers all day, fill your office with vibrant art to energize your space and make you feel motivated. Spill out the artist in you and add a few paintings, artefacts or whatever suits you.
Add color to the Space
Working in a color-filled environment can make you more inspired to work from your office and not the couch. You can paint the office walls, shelves, and ceiling with one color to make the space feel larger, or using a filing cabinet for just a pop of color.
Keep it Uncluttered
Nobody works well in a messy home office. Don’t waste an ounce of space by tucking printers, filing, etc into corners and in drawers. Use all your vertical space, too, by putting cabinets up to the ceiling with varying types of storage and a wall hanging pin board to help organize supplies that might otherwise end up shoved in a drawer.
