How to Personalize Your Workspace
Over the past two years, employees have had the opportunity to personalize their workspaces due to expanded work-from-home policies. Instead of working from the office each day, employees are developing and decorating their own home offices. This guide should help you personalize your workspace to improve your productivity. Let’s get started.
Tip #1: Declutter your space
One big mistake that people make when personalizing their workspace is bringing in too many items. You want to avoid cluttering your office space with too much stuff because this can make it non-functional. We recommend keeping your desk surface and floor space clear of paper, piles of books, or any items that may distract you.
Tip #2: Focus on comfort
When you work from home, you have the opportunity to make your space the most comfortable it can be. You can purchase a comfortable desk chair or a standing desk if you think that will help keep you comfortable and productive. You can make your space bright and comfortable if you know it’ll make you energetic and happy throughout the day, or you may choose a more muted color palette if that’ll help keep you on task. Design the space for your own preferences and comfort.
Tip #3: Invest in the right lighting
Depending on where your office is located, you may have natural light. This is great! Natural light helps to regulate the body’s natural circadian rhythm, also known as its sleep-wake schedule. If your office space doesn’t have ideal lighting, don’t fret! You can easily invest in the proper lighting.
We recommend floor lamps for both ambient and task light. Ambient light is the general or primary source of light for the room. It serves as the foundation for the lighting and improves the sense of warmth and depth of a room or space. If you’re trying to achieve ambient light in your office recommend, placing floor lamps at the corners or edges of the room.
If you need task lighting for a specific purpose such as reading or working on the computer, then make sure you place the lamps to the side of you or behind where you’re seated. The best place will ultimately depend on what you need the light for and where the shadow may fall.
Tip #4: Accessorize as you see fit
As noted above, you don’t want to go overboard and clutter our space, but at the same time, you want to make your workspace your own. We recommend bringing in your own style and taste in subtle ways. For example, you may consider:
- Using a fun mug or vintage jar to hold your writing utensils
- Incorporating plants into the space with a fun ceramic planter
- Purchasing a textured woven basket as your inbox tray
- Utilizing a basket or bin as a phone charging station to help hide cords
Just simple accessories can help you feel more comfortable and thus more productive!
