Whether you go to the corporate office or work from home, decorating your workspace is always fun. If you work full time, you’re looking at the same four walls for 40+ hours a week, so it’s completely understandable and normal that it can start to look really uninteresting and boring if you don’t dress it up.
Your workspace almost feels like a second home since you spend the majority of your time there, so why not make it a cozy place you’ll enjoy being in! So, without further ado, let’s dive into this blog and look at some great office decorating ideas to help you inject personality and color into your workspace to inspire creativity, productivity, and positivity in your workday.
1. Organize your office
If you want to be as productive as possible at work, it’s important to be as organized as possible. You won’t feel like working if your entire office is a mess with papers and knickknacks everywhere. Clutter can make you more anxious, reduce your productivity level, and may even prevent you from getting your work done, so make sure you choose what you place in your office.
If you start working early in the morning or finish late at night, appropriate lighting is essential to avoid eye strain. But nothing prevents you from combining comfort and aesthetics. You can install a light that matches your style at home: rustic, contemporary, fun look; you’re spoiled for choice! To hell with the boring desk lamp provided by your employer.
2. Use a cute mug
One of my favorite ways to start the work day in the morning is to enjoy a nice mug of one of my favorite drinks. I love mugs with colorful designs and motivational quotes because they always help brighten my mood, give me positive vibes, and motivate me to stay hydrated. It’s also a plus because colorful, personalized mugs can help add extra color to any workspace. Whether it’s a refreshing coffee or iced tea for a hot summer day or a cup of hot chocolate, tea, or coffee for cold winter mornings, I always make sure I have a variety of mugs and cups to choose from to suit every occasion. Buy personalized mugs that fit your taste, desires, and, most importantly, your office.
3. Add a little plant
One of my favorite ways to warm up an office or workspace that always makes me smile is to add a small plant. It can be succulents, a faux plant, or anything in between: all plants are great options that help brighten things up in an otherwise cold office. And if you love plants, you can always put in more. Just be sure to water them as needed!
Cactus, positive energy plants, bamboo, do yourself a favor to decorate your office! Also, remember that if your office doesn’t get a lot of sunlight, you should buy a plant that doesn’t need a lot of natural light to survive. It is well known that indoor plants reduce stress, anxiety, fatigue, etc. In short, they allow you to feel good while bringing a breath of fresh air to your office decoration.

4. Add a wall decoration
There are so many ways to add art to decorate your office walls. Here are my favorites that can easily help you liven up your space.
Photos of loved ones: having photos of your loved ones, friends, or pets is always a great way to remind you of life outside of work.
Inspirational quotes: here are some beautiful and inspiring quotes that you can add frames to and put against your office wall or hang on the wall. This will motivate you and keep you going when you feel like giving up or having a bad day.
Wall Grid: A simple way to add pictures and decorations to an office is to install a wall grid. Simply use matching paper clips to hang your pictures or notes, attach a tray to your grid (if you want to add decorations), and you are ready to decorate your workplace!
5. A pegboard: practical and decorative
The pegboard, also known as the perforated board, is a storage accessory usually used in DIY workshops located in the garage. But over the years, it has also found its perfect place above a desk, in a bathroom, or in the kitchen. Fixed on the wall of your work area, it is aesthetic but also very practical since it allows you to store a great number of things:
- Pencil cup
- Headphones or earphones
- Important documents
