Office decoration can bring the look of success into your office. A new look in your office interior may also improve work place performance by as much as 15%. New design inspires creativity and create a more pleasing work environment. Decorating an office space can be a delicate balancing act. You want your office space to be inviting and pleasant for both employees and visitors, but it must remain professional in look and feel. For office walls, try to pick a color that reflects the spirit of your business.
Office furniture plays a large role in how an office space looks and feels. Try to maintain the same style of furniture throughout the office. Mismatched tables and chairs tend to make any space look rather cheap and thrown together. As with wall color, try to go for a style in furnishings that reflects the energy of your industry. It’s been said that with a clear desk comes a clear mind. Keep that in mind when arranging your desktop. A framed photograph of a loved one, a telephone, and a computer should suffice. If there are office supplies you don’t use on a constant basis, tuck them away in a drawer. A chaotic physical environment will soon give way to a chaotic energy in the workplace, and this is rarely good for productivity or progress.
Never sit with your back to the door. When visitors arrive, you don’t want the back of your head to be the first thing that they encounter. Instead, arrange your desk so that it faces the door; doing so sends a message of power and strength. Light your space well. If there are fluorescent lights in your office, turn them off and bring in lamps, then find a nice balance between the light the lamps provide and the natural sunlight. Create a sense of openness. Avoid a cluttered physical space by placing with only the necessary furnishings which are your desk and some chairs in the center of the room. Place all other furniture, such as bookshelves, filing cabinets, and sofas, against the walls. Warm up your workspace by adding some tasteful framed photos, prints, or paintings to your walls.
