How to Decorate Your Work-From-Home Office
Since 2020, more people began working from home than ever before. While it may be nice to not have to fight traffic to get to the office, staying motivated can be tough in the comfort of your own house.
Setting up a dedicated office workspace is important to staying motivated and on-task while you work from home. Here’s some tips for decorating your work from home office space for comfort and success.
Use beautiful stationery that sparks joy
The famous author Kon Mari is started the ‘spark joy’ movement, where you only keep things that sparks joy within you. This very much applies to having the right stationery like fancy pens and cool desk accessories that empower and inspire you to stay motivated!
Make the most of your lighting
One challenge to working from home is fighting the coziness! Usually, we decorate our homes to be havens of comfort and relaxation. But when you’re working from home, staying on-task and getting things done is the goal. The best way to accomplish work goals from home is to keep workspaces bright and airy. Up the wattage of your light bulbs, add lamps, and utilize natural light from an open window. Bright spaces are productive spaces!
Add motivational touches
Sometimes an encouraging word is all it takes to get back and track when you’re struggling to get work done. Find a motivational wallpaper with a beautiful image and inspiring quote for your computer. When you feel overwhelmed, take a few deep breaths, and look at your wallpaper for inspiration to keep going.
Eliminate clutter and distractions
Making sure your work area is tidy and well-organized will help you to cut out unnecessary distractions. If you have a hobby, put hobby items in another part of the house. Make sure you have a waste paper basket and storage bins to keep your desk space clean and clear of messes. A tidy space leads to clear, organized thinking and planning for your workday.
Use bright colors.
Vibrant colors and unique designs will keep your mind active and interested in the work in front of you. When your home office is bright and welcoming, you are less likely to dread getting out of bed and getting to work each day. Make sure the walls of your workspace are decorated to your tastes and brightly lit. Taking a moment to just enjoy the beautiful decorations you’ve chosen can be an excellent pick-me-up when you’re feeling a little worn out.
At the end of the day, your home office is all yours. Think about what’s most important for you personally in getting your work done each day. Tailor your decor to the things that matter most to you. Maybe you’d like a fidget spinner or speakers to listen to your favorite playlist. If you don’t have money to invest in art, visit a craft store and create your own! The most important thing is that you are comfortable and have the tools you need to succeed. Make it fun!
Working from home gives you the chance to create an office that is all about you and your needs. Spend time choosing decor and office supplies that are meaningful and beautiful to you. Let each moment you spend working from home be full of comfort, productivity, and peace that is uniquely you!
