The Mendosa-Balboni Team can tell you best as being busy Realtors, that making a home office space that is inspiring and organized can definitely help with your productivity. If you currently have just a portion of a counter, simple desk with plain chair or the like, now is a good time to take some time and consider a facelift. Here are some great ideas that will help inspire you throughout the day while you enhance an important part of your home.
Add life – Working in an area that isn’t lively makes it hard to feel alive and inspired. While you certainly don’t want to add too much for distraction, add some plants for life and color. Any plants that are appropriate for the amount of natural light in your home can do. However, succulents are always great options as they are extremely hardy and don’t require much effort to keep them alive.
Add words of inspiration – There can never be too much inspiration for your workspace. Try adding some key words or phrases that foster creativity and production. Wall stickers are a great and easy solution to tackle this.
Add color – Adding splashes of color for interest but not distraction is key. Too much color can take away from productivity while not enough will leave the area dull and boring. Some ideas can include painting the interior of your bookcase, adding colorful decorative items or swapping out monotone furniture pieces that are more vibrant.
Personal touch – Create a level of comfort while you add exciting decor. Even if you have created the perfect, stunning environment, it can still be dull if you haven’t customized it as yours. Some photos of family, friends, favorite places or things are great ideas.
Relaxing accents – It may sound strange to make a productive space relaxing at first. However, transform any stressful energy into being productive instead. Be sure not to add any elements that may make you drowsy like dim lighting. Some tips include things like candles or even a nice fluffy rug under your feet.
