It’s not unusual to put a lot of time into decorating your home, but don’t forget about all the time spent at the office! Your office should be a space that helps you feel inspired, motivated, and organized. Wondering how to decorate your office?
4 design ideas and decorating tips to spruce up your business office:
1. Simplify your color palette to modernize your office space.
Simple color schemes don’t have to be boring! Many ideas for modern office designs cut down on the amount of colors in the room to make a few colors pop instead. For example, a minimal white design can be elevated with accessories in your choice color. A white desk will blend seamlessly with a white wall, but chairs, rugs, picture frames, or lamps in a bright color will stand out against the background.
Windows can also be an unconventional way to incorporate color. Replace the white windowsill with a brightly painted one to add some zest into a corporate setting. This office décor will also draw attention to natural lighting from the windows.
2. Add a functional focal wall.
Running out of desk or meeting space will make your office look cluttered and stress you out. Extend your work surface upwards and make a focal wall that spans to the ceiling. Then, fill up the space with what will keep you organized and suit your needs: shelves, cabinet storage, dry erase surfaces, or space for a mounted flat screen are just a few possibilities.
The meeting space in this picture creates a highly functional area. A dry erase wall using IdeaPaint paired with a flat screen creates an office room perfect for any business presentation or brainstorming session. Plus, taking the design to the ceiling will draw the eye upwards, an effect that will create the illusion of more height and space.
3. Incorporate home furniture into your office décor.
Adding comfy chairs, plush ottomans, and pillows can help add warmth to a corporate space. Home furniture can also help define big office spaces by delegating an area for shared seating or by welcoming visitors in a lobby area with an approachable feel.
4. Use your walls wisely.
Let the wall décor in your office double as an organizational system to maximize efficiency in your office space. An unconventional calendar can be a great way to keep all of your to-do’s front and center. We love this geometric calendar that uses adhesive chalkboard wall decals with a chalk ink pen to write in the day’s events. Most chalk ink pens are designed to be removed with water or cleaning products (depending on the manufacturer), so you can easily change the information from month to month.
Keep papers organized in small office spaces with hanging clipboards. Your papers will be easily visible for quick references, and this organizing idea will help free up room in your drawers and filing cabinets. Customize each clipboard with wallpaper or decorative paper that captures your personal style to also add interest to your space.
