Whether you have a 9 to 5 job or work from your home office, having an inspiring and personalised workspace can do wonders and help you focus on your work. The smallest changes can change your outlook on things, especially if you include things that are meaningful to you and touch you in an emotionally and positive way.
If you’re looking for workspace ideas and inspiration, we have come up with some tips and tricks to help you transform your space!
SHOW OFF YOUR PERSONALITY
When considering workspace ideas and what to include, a MUST is to show off your personality. Just because it’s a place where you have to get work done doesn’t mean it has to be completely devoid of character! Personalising your workspace can actually help you focus more on your work. Add photos of your loved ones, an artwork, make a mood board or surround it with inspirational quotes. If you have a view, position your desk to face it instead of facing the door or a wall. It will give your eyes a rest from staring at a screen and give you something else to focus on.

ADD A GREEN THUMB
Bringing the outdoors in is a great way to add some colour and texture to your workspace. Indoor plants are not only easy to maintain, but they are very beneficial to have in your workspace. It can improve your creativity, productivity and also your concentration.

ORGANISATION IS KEY
As much as we try to avoid it, clutter in a personal workspace seems to follow us. Too much clutter can affect the way we work as we’ll keep getting distracted by everything that’s going on around us. The best and most productive workspace is one that’s organised – with proper storage and everything belonging where it should. This way, you’ll spend less time trying to find things and rifling through hundreds of paperwork – don’t let yourself get trapped in this procrastination hole! Storage is often overlooked when it comes to workspace ideas because we just want to make our desk look appealing. Consider your workflow and make sure to include enough shelves, cabinets and storage boxes.

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
Workspaces don’t need to be boring and grey. Don’t be afraid to go outside the box and add some playful and colourful details in! There are many options you could play around with to see which one suits you the best – whether it be colouring a wall or having a wallpaper, having different materials and textures, colourful rug and decor, etc.
