Your workspace is an extension of you. It’s your personality laid bare and it’s what you take visual cues from at various points in your day.
What does your desk look like? Does it need a unique flair that represents your personality? You can start with an iPhone sound amplifier to share your musical tastes with your co-workers – we personally feel that orange is a great color for a workspace.
How else have you amp-ed up your workspace? Here are some ideas:
We all have our favorite colors, but did you know that the colors you view on a regular basis might increase productivity? Most classrooms are combinations of grays and browns because it unconsciously promotes good behavior. Don’t let you workspace hold you down! Find your spirit’s best color and add it to your space.
Work and Play
Your work doesn’t have to have such a stark separation from play. Incorporate some wall art and desk mementos that represent your style. A Himalayan salt lamp for the spiritual soul or maybe a concert poster for the festival fan, any personal desk mementos will help you spark a conversation with your co-workers. Sure, Carol in Accounting has a bowl of candy to attract new office friends, but you have a light saber and an iPhone amplifier blasting everyone’s favorite radio station
If you’re working in a business-casual environment, there could be relaxed policies on your desk décor. Swap out that boring, black office chair for a mod swivel chair and then, add a pop of color with a shag carpet instead of a cold chair mat. On a tight budget? A pillow with a fun print and a welcome mat will easily do the trick.
At kubxlab we always encourage creativity, so come up with your own ways to amp up your workstation. The more “you” you can fit into your office, the better your work will be. We love ourselves, don’t we? It’s important that our desks reflect us.
