Ever tried working in a dark, dreary room? It’s not easy. Then, compare this to sitting near a window, looking out to a beautiful large tree. You’re more motivated and more productive. So how can you brighten your office space without relying on a beautiful view? It’s simple, pay attention to office design.
Make work more enjoyable by adding life to your surroundings. According to psychologists, atmosphere plays a huge impact on our mood. And, when we’re spending at least eight hours a day in the one space, the office, it’s important to inject colours and light into it.
Here are five ways to bring light to your workstations:
Plants and fresh flowers is a simple way to bring colour to any part of the office that needs it. Not only do plants look great but they purify the air – making it cleaner, fresher, and better for your health. Bring nature inside by putting a beautiful plant on your desk. You can also get creative and buy hanging plants for areas that look lifeless.
Lighten the mood by putting a colourfully-cute cushion on your seat, a Persian rug on the floor or by having bright office furniture. Not only will this make your workstation more comfortable (which will increase productivity, well being and health), it’ll also boost your spirits.
Think of how you decorate your home. You’ll probably have pieces of art, trinkets and photo frames peppered in each room. The same goes for your workspace. Don’t be afraid to make it personal and fantastic. Nothing is worse than stark-white walls with nothing on them.
Change up your office workstation every few weeks or months. A fresh space does wonders for our motivation and creativity. Was there something new that you bought when you were holidaying abroad? Why not make it your May desk theme? Have fun with it. They do say change is as good as a holiday.
Last but not least, a change of scenery can do the trick, too. Remember when you were a kid and loved moving around the things in your room? It felt like a whole new space when your bed was angled to the window, instead of looking at a wall. Use this strategy in the office. Change your view and you’ll see the difference in how you work.
