by | Nov 15, 2019 | Inspiration, Tips and Tricks

 

When it comes to workspace, the first thing that would come to your mind would most probably be a large corner office where you can find yourself staring on your computer screen and furiously typing on a keyboard, confined cubicles with plain empty walls and are full with files and scattered stationery items on the desk, or home office where you keep plugging away in an important project at a small corner. 

 

While all those things perfectly describe how a typical workspace looks like when it comes to producing a result or getting things done, there is so much more to your desk, chair, computer and file cabinets, if you want to be both creative and productive. To be at your most productive mark for you, your workspace should be a source of constant inspiration as well as a pleasant place to work.

 

So before you start your work today, take a few minutes to look at your workspace. Does it inspire you or is it just too monotonous? If you think that it’s time for a change or you want to give your workspace a little spruce, here are 5 tips to turn your workspace from drab to fab!

 

Show Off Your Highlights

Whether you’re working in a large company, self-employed or setting up a little workspace of your own to cater to your specific hobbies like crafting, reading or writing, it’s always good to remember that at times there will be other people who will enter your space, be it for meetings, discussions or the likes. In order to make your visitors feel welcomed, why not display the highlights of your life through framed prints. Not only will they make your space more light and welcoming, but the framed prints can also be a great way to reflect your personality, both professionally and as an individual throughout your office.

 

As most of the workspaces will definitely have some eschewed corners in favour of focal aspects of the room such as the desk, reception desk or the couch, you can take advantage of those precious corners by displaying some of your favourite or proudest highlights. For example, you can place your diplomas, prestigious awards, achievements of the company, picture collage of best memories, your company logo, or positive quotes in a frame that’ll inspire greatness and boost yours or your staffs working spirit in a great way. 

 

Either you choose to hang them on the blank and boring walls of your workspace to create a “wall of fame”, lean them with the help of art shelves to create a classic and chic style or place them on a sideboard with some decorative items, framed prints are still the best and easiest way that offer you the whole benefit to portray yourself to those you work with, at the same time boost your workspace style.

The Metal Masterpiece

When it comes to workspace decoration, you’ll definitely need a different set of needs and decor taste to help you to complement your workspace interior style. But that doesn’t mean that you have to burn a ton of money in your attempt to enhance the appearance of your workspace, especially if you want to stay trendy and achieve a contemporary/minimal style working space. 

 

Adding a metal art pieces of nature images such as forest, mountains, floral fields, sunset of tropical islands, seascapes with some motivational quotes or philosophies in your workspace areas – the hallway, stairways, break-out zones and cabins. This will give your workspace a greater outlook and brighten up the space without blowing your budget.

 

As these luminous and durable art pieces are basically printed in a full bleed and involve glossy finish, the visuals that you choose to print and display will look bolder, radiant, clearer and beautiful to complement your simple and modern workspace interiors. When people see these stunning metal masterpieces on your workspace walls or placed on your desk, it will create a better impression and shows that your office has a unique taste that’s special to you.

If you’re one of those who work in a workspace surrounded by confined cubicle walls or corner office facing toward a bland and boring wall, you’ll definitely know how bleak it can look and how uninspiring it is to work in a drab environment devoid of any life or energy. Decorating your workspace with things that’ll remind you of happiness and inspiration is a great way to amp your productivity level; why not decorate your boring walls or cubicle walls with some unique polaroid photo prints?

 

There are ample approaches that you can go about with polaroid style photo prints to decorate your confined workspace. For example, you can create a striking mosaic photo wall by sticking prints on a paper board or directly to your cubicle walls, or make a grid panel gallery wall for you to prop it on your desk with a clip of your favourite photos on it. You can also fit your photos onto a DIY windowpane or bulletin board and lean them on your desk, or go grand by clipping them onto a piece of string to create a photo garland. All these nice little touch add charm and sprinkle of fun to your own little workspace, reminding you of all the best moments you had to inspire you to move further. Make yourself feel comfortable at work and that will eventually reward you with greater productivity.

Personalised mugs allow you to add your favourite photos, quotes, personal messages and your company logo on the mug, constantly reminding you to kickstart your day in a motivated mood. Once in a while, the mug could make an impression to your workspace visitors or promote your company brand when clients visit.

To be more functional, use it as a smart pen holder to create an organised and clean-looking desk while having the quotes on mug to keep you motivated all day long.
