Happy New Year!
I am just coming off a three-week break and I am ready to get back to work! But my time off wasn’t all about the holidays. I redesigned my web design site and I did a little redecorating in the house. But now, I’m itching to give my home-office an upgrade!
A fresh coat of paint and a few of your favorite accessories can get you inpsired and ready to rock the new year!
But what do you do when you on a tight budget?
For many home-based workers around the world, having a dedicated space to work can do much to improve productivity and makes one look forward to working every single day. But if you’ve been working at home for several months or years, it’s possible that you’re starting to get bored with your surroundings and you’re wishing for a few changes to upgrade your space.
3 Ways To Upgrade Your Home Office Décor
A complete renovation can cost thousands of dollars, but there’s no need to break the bank to improve your home office. By adding the right accessories and making a few changes, you can refresh the look of your working space and make it more inviting. Here are a few ways to upgrade your home office décor.
Add an indoor water fountain
Most workers need to do their job in complete silence, but for others, some ambient sound can be helpful to get more things done within the day. For a soothing source of sound, install an indoor floor or tabletop water fountain in your home office. According to a study, listening to nature sounds such as running water can boost your mood and productivity.
Moreover, having an indoor water fountain can help you feel more positive in your work environment even in the most challenging or stressful times. Add some LED lights around the base of the fountain so you can continue to enjoy its beauty at night.
Switch out your office chair
If you don’t spend lots of time sitting in the chair and don’t need special back support, then switch out your ergonomic office chair with something a bit more stylish and luxurious, such as an upholstered wingback or slipper chair.
You can find a used one at a garage sale or thrift shops and re-upholster the chair yourself with new fabric. Add a thin throw pillow and drape a throw blanket over the back of the chair for a touch of coziness.
Splurge on one thing that you need to have
Do you need to have music in order to work well? Then invest in a set of quality speakers so you can have a more enjoyable way to listen to your favorite tunes. If you love going barefoot in your office, then a plush area rug may be the one thing that you should spend your money on to upgrade your workspace. Whatever it is, think of the one thing that you need to have to make working at home more fun for you.
Having a great home office can boost impact the way you work. Follow these tips to upgrade your workspace and be productive and happier while you work.
