Styling your office space – comfort & calm

Feeling great in the space you work in is important. By changing the look of your workspace you can enhance the vibe of your office and make it a productive space that you love to be in. Often it only takes a few shuffles and tweaks to spark up the energy in your workplace. Other times it will require a complete overhaul.

A few tips to create a working space that brings out the best in your work include:

Lighten up! Good lighting is essential and natural light is best.

Brightening up your space with natural light will not only help you see better, but it will also help you feel brighter and perform at your best. One of the reasons for this is that natural light helps regulate the body’s natural circadian rhythms (sleep-wake schedules).

After a good night’s sleep, you will feel sharper and breeze through your daily tasks Other benefits of natural light include fewer headaches and less eye strain.

Where natural lighting isn’t possible bright LED downlights are great. It’s a bonus if they can be dimmed according to the natural light and adjusted to match the colour that suits the mood you want to create

Organise your space!

When your workspace is organised it will help you focus and be more efficient. A cluttered, disorganised space can make you feel chaotic and drain your level of focus.

Create a sense of calm and order by keeping your spaced organised. Have a place for everything and use clear labelling and orderly filing systems so you can find what you need when you need it. If you don’t want your workspace to look too clinical try adding some personal touches like trendy artwork or wallpaper. A bold designer piece can also make a great conversation starter as well as adding a touch of glamour. Perhaps find something to look at that inspires and motivates you to blaze through daily tasks. To add softness to your space and filter noise add curtains, floor rugs, and cushions.
Make sure you buy the correct chair for YOU. Something that creates great back support, forearms should rest parallel to the floor.

Feel much better at the end of the day.

If you have space you might also like to add a lounge chair or couch. Throw in some cushions and create a haven to melt into when you have downtime and a welcoming comfort for when guests drop in.

Bring nature into your workspace by adding Indoor plants to your décor. This will transform your space into a tranquil place as being surrounded by nature has been proven to evoke feelings of calm. Indoor plants are also effective air purifiers as many indoor plant varieties absorb harmful toxins and replace them with clean oxygen.

Lift the mood with candles or aromatherapy diffusers, choose scents that feel good for you and create a space you love to work in.

A comfortable office space will be a space you enjoy spending time in. Think comfort, ambience and convenience.
