Many home workspaces – whether they're designated rooms or a nook in a living room or bedroom – often face one of two problems: a lack of comfort or an abundance of clutter. Fortunately, it doesn't take much to reverse these problems and invigorate your workspace, so it is a productive place you enjoy spending time in. Here are four energizing tips to help you declutter and enjoy your workspace:
4 Ways to Rejuvenate Your Office Space
- Add Ample Shelving
Shelving is the key to an organized workspace – and not just for books and papers, but also for storing equipment such as a printer and serving as a docking station for tablets and cell phones. Most workspaces become cluttered with books and magazines stacked on the floor and papers stacked everywhere else. Built-in or hanging shelves provide the solution.
- Hang Papers on a Bulletin Board
It's hard to dispute the lasting appeal of a traditional bulletin board that holds scraps of paper with push pins. With the board on the wall near your desk, you see notes and reminders. This is also a great way to keep papers from piling up on your desk. Keep all important notes and documents on your board so they are both accessible and out of the way.
- Get Comfortable in a Unique Seat
You may be hard-pressed to park a sofa or overstuffed armchair in your workspace, but many interior designers are convinced people spend more time in spaces where they can also unwind. Downshift to a small, padded ottoman or even a grouping of pillows on the floor – and sit yourself there while you study or read. This small change in routine can provide a big psychological lift.
- Allow for Proper Lighting
Appropriate lighting is essential to an invigorating workspace. Too much light makes it difficult to focus and too little light causes you to strain your eyes when you read or look at the computer screen. Window shades allow you to filter and control the sunlight in the room so you always have optimal light. With motorized and manual options available, window shades are a must for every home.
