Quick and Easy Office Refresh to Update Your Workspace

Are you thinking about making some changes to your office? Well, it’s never a bad idea to update your workspace with some simple beautifying changes. Your workspace can have a significant impact on your productivity, morale, and the overall energy of the space. This is why people put a lot of thought and effort into choosing their furniture, carpeting, art hanging on the walls, new equipment, and color layout, etc. The extent of changes is subject to what you strive to achieve and why you want to make those changes. Here’s how I worked on refreshing my office. Hopefully, it will give you some ideas if you’re interested in doing this yourself.

Like many of you, I also have to work from home and needed a warm and comfortable working space. Therefore, I decided to give my office a bit of a refresh to keep things looking and feeling more inspiring and to spark creativity.

I started by thinking through what my goals for the new looks are and where I’ll be buying all the materials needed. I decided to paint the walls pink for a refreshing and soothing effect. Then I decluttered the place to get rid of unnecessary stuff and rearranged everything else. I tried to add the things that give me joy and positive vibes as I have to spend a significant amount of my time, usually 8 to 12 hours, in this area. The addition of scented and regular candles was done to keep my mind and body relaxed and revitalized during work. I also added my favorite tunes to the playlist to uplift my mood and help me thrive as I work.

I placed a small super-comfy and plush love seat to the space to help me relax whenever I get tired of sitting at my desk for long periods of time. I came across a cute writing station at Ross and decided to add it to the office along with a gallery wall for inspirational quotes to keep me motivated throughout the day.

Since staying organized is the key to being more productive and stress-free, I bought a whiteboard calendar to keep me on track. I covered some of my favorite books with gold contact paper for giving my bookshelf a stylish look. Moreover, I purchased a cute gold dream sign from an online store to sit on my bookshelf.

The importance of lighting can’t be denied when designing or decorating a working place. Therefore, to give my office a classy and glam look, I ordered an exquisite chandelier from Amazon. For taking the flooring of my office up a notch, I chose a beautiful pink rug from Home Goods to lay down the foundation. Also, I ordered a new luxurious and sturdy office chair from Amazon. I received these pink Le Jardin flowers as a gift and decided to use them for decorating my desk to enhance the aesthetics of my office and give it a vibrant and refreshing ambiance.

Office work has become more enjoyable and less tiring since I updated my office. I even spend weekends doing creative and rejuvenating things in my home office now. If you find your home office boring, insipid, and demotivating, I’d suggest you consider doing an office refresh to turn your regular workspace into an inspirational oasis to work in.

Don’t forget to share your experience and pictures of the office refresh with me. Stay safe!
