Office Decor Resolutions We’re Making in 2018
The new year is already upon us and it’s a good time to take a good look at your professional life. You have a chance to turn a new leaf and accelerate your climb up the career ladder.
And since you are your own boss, you have the freedom to do what you want. It’s a good idea to make your space a bit less cozy than a living room, but much less boring than a corporate office.
A work area must be a place where you can easily get into the zone and tackle daily workload. It’s certainly not supposed to be a cluttered room that surrounds you with piles of paperwork and knick-knacks.
So, here is how to stylishly revamp your workspace and attack your obligations with the wind in your sails.
A matter of style
Décor resolutions depend on your stylistic preferences, the layout of the office, and your budget. What you need to keep in mind, though, is that design and décor have a profound effect on your mood, concentration, and productivity. Therefore, as your first resolution, decide to play it smart and form a plan for an ideal home office. Select a design style that hits home if you haven’t already.
Note that all-white offices are a classic choice, one that oozes minimalist sophistication. Just make sure your workspace does not feel sterile and blank. The good news is that there are many ways to disrupt the corporate blandness with smart accents and décor pieces.
Spark visual interest
To breathe some life into a white backdrop, for example, you can use wall art or create a photo gallery arrangement. Furthermore, commit to infusing your office with a homey feel and warmth. A cozy rug can do just that and also anchor your style well. And if you can afford it, go big and inject warmth in a more literal sense, by fostering a welcoming office ambiance with a fireplace.
Those who want to do redecorate on a budget can introduce pops of brighter colors here. Make things interesting and when picking your tones, adhering to the principles of color psychology. At the same time, check out what is trendy. I would certainly find a way to incorporate Pantone color of the year for 2018, ultraviolet.
Is there too much stuff lying around and inhibiting your effectiveness? Well, you need to know what to display and what to store away. In general, items you need on a daily basis should be easily accessible, unlike those that you require once in a blue moon. It’s best to keep your desk pristine, free of any distractions. Under-the-desk drawers are perfect for keeping paperwork clutter at bay.
On the other hand, a wall-mounted yearly planner should be visible from wherever you stand and help you stay on top of your business game in 2018. Along similar lines, office supplies are best kept within reach, so that you don’t have to stand up every time you need them. To go the extra mile, match office supplies to décor and design features and pull off a color-coordinated look.
Opt for double duty
Always strive to blend style and functionality. For instance, light fixtures are an absolute necessity in a workspace, yet they can do more than just provide utility. Hang a striking chandelier above your desk: it will illuminate your office when needed and also double as the crown jewel of your décor.
Likewise, the best kind of storage never gets in the way and fits the overall design and décor seamlessly. If you are aiming for a contemporary look, go for corner storage that almost disappears into the wall. You can also make your storage units design-heavy. Add stylish boxes to your shelves or line stock floor-to-ceiling bookshelves with things you love and that hold meaning.
Just don’t make your space cramped: try to maintain a sense of openness and airiness.
Work miracles with décor
It doesn’t take that much effort and money to assemble an uplifting space that’s highly functional and visually stunning. Remember that an office needs to support your daily habits and speak to your sense of style.
So, don’t be afraid to think outside the box and disrupt the rules of the business environment. Keep it fun and inspiring, as well as clutter- and stress-free. Strike a balance between corporate and comfortable and achieve peak performance.
Your dream office could be just a few simple décor projects away. Kick off 2018 with a bang.
