Are you tired of working in the same old office space every day? From flowers to photo collages, here are just a few ways to make yourself excited about going into work again.
1. Let There Be Light
If you aren’t using florescent lights, it’s time to start. Not only will they help you stay awake during weary, post-lunch slumps, but they can also invigorate your brain with their brightness. You can even buy something like a fluorescent starter if you want to have total control over your lighting experience.
2. Add More Color
Do you feel your days blurring together? Does everything seem dull and gray? While neutral tones are lauded for their ability to match everything, they aren’t always a great option for making you passionate about your work area. Throw in some bright yellows and electric blues to liven the place up.
3. Decorate Your Walls
There are many ways to add some personality to your office walls. The most obvious tactic is hanging famous artwork, but don’t feel like you’re limited to Van Gogh. You can also hang local art, motivational quotes, decorative knits, wallpaper patterns and anything else that catches your fancy.
4. Develop Your Green Thumb
Flowers are a great way to bring a little color to your cubicle. Just make sure that they don’t have overpowering scents! You don’t want anyone in the office to suffer from an allergic reaction. Look for plants with mild or even zero fragrance.
5. Redecorate the Break Room
Even if there are rules about decorating the main office space, the break room should be free from these restrictions. What clients are going to wander to the employee fridge? Go ahead and hang your goofy magnets or make your picture collage on the wall.
These are just a few ways to breathe new life into your office. The sky is the limit, so don’t be shy about trying new things! As long as you aren’t splattering paint on the walls, everything is reversible, so you should feel free to experiment to your heart’s content.
