I love playing with colors in my home. Changing the color in my living room used to be a big job. I used to have to repaint the entire room to change the color scheme but have since learned to keep the walls and flooring neutral. Using accent colors in the room can make it very easy to change the overall appearance of the room without going to the expense or work of repainting. My blog will show you what you can do to change the color in your rooms without having to go through the process of painting the entire room.
An office is not just a space to get work done; it is a space where you spend a considerable amount of time. When designing an office space, you want to ensure you get the design right. The right design will optimize your productivity and turn your office into a space where you want to be.
1. Start with a Great Chair
Ideally, you are going to be sitting down in your office, getting work done. You are going to want to sit in a chair that is comfortable and ergonomically correct. Your chair should be the centerpiece of your workplace, from both a style point and a functional point. Always leave enough room in your budget for a comfortable chair for your office that you can see yourself spending a lot of time in.
2. Use Colors You Enjoy
Offices have a reputation for being a place with boring, flat walls and colors. However, boring walls are not inspiring. When it comes to your office space, paint the walls a color that you like. Choose a color that inspires you — that may be a color that allows you to feel calm and focused, or that may be a color that makes you feel energized — just chose a color that has a positive impact on your mood and will help you work and concentrate.
3. Enjoy a View
You want to enjoy whatever you are positioned to look at in your office when you are sitting down and getting work done. If you have a window in your office, don't turn your back to it. Position your chair so that you can see out the window when you are working and enjoy the beautiful view. If you don't have a window to look out, create a pretty view all on your own. Place a picture you enjoy at eye level and add some plants around it. Create your own pretty view if your office doesn't give you one.
4. Use All the Space
Next, use all your space. Take advantage of things such as floating shelf walls or a wooden cube storage shelf to organize the items you need to work with or that you need to use as a reference. Offices are usually not that big on space, so use the space you have against the walls to organize the things you need in a visually appealing way.
5. Hide Those Cords
Modern technology is great, but what is not great is all the cords that come with it. When designing your office, find a place to put all your cords that offers easy access but doesn't leave the cords hanging out like a sore thumb. Some people use cord boxes, fabric cord covers, and cable clips to help hide the cords.
