We spend so much time on the job, our workspaces need to spark our creativity, passions, and make us want to innovate. If you’re founding a start-up, you can paint your canvas, but for most of us, we can’t control our office decor. You can, however, control your desk. Make your own picture frames. Hang images that trigger your inspirations. Take a pottery class and make your own clay pots to grow plant life, or hold something that symbolizes your accomplishments. There are some clever people out there thinking up ways to work in fun, pretty spaces, without all the cost.
When welcoming a client or a candidate to your work what’s the first thing you want them to see? How do you want them to feel? Think about what represents your company culture. Sometimes all it takes is a smile and a simple…
The ‘workplace family’. What would your company crest say?
Take commonplace eyesores and make them appealing with wall decals or paint.
All those cords from your devices don’t have to be daunting.
Group tasks can be ticked off in a visualizing appealing way too.
And your favorite quotes and mottos can be displayed inexpensively, like this one on sheets of paper.
