Office EquipmentThe office we work in is the room we spend most of our day in. For that time to be productive and stimulating, you need to think about both your office décor and functionality.

If you are not really sure where to start with these two, we have a few pointers that may help you out.

Decor

When thinking about office décor, it’s all about your personal feel about the space. Even though you may like a certain interior concept, if it doesn’t feel right, don’t push it. Instead, opt for something that keeps you upbeat and happy.

4 Pieces of Office Equipment That You Don’t Need to Replace

4 Pieces of Office Equipment That You Don’t Need to Replace.  The IT landscape has changed so dramatically over the past decade that businesses need to stop and consider the latest solutions …

Paint

Giving your space a coat of fresh paint is the easiest way to change the vibe of that space. From dark, boring, dull, uninspiring you can go to bright, shiny, energetic and beautiful.

Most commonly chosen wall colors are beige, eggshell, milk gray and muted shades of green, blue and yellow.

Use any of these colors as foundation only to later build it up with interesting accents and ornaments. Make sure the furniture you choose agrees with the shade of colors on your walls.

Ornaments

Office EquipmentTo give the space personality, add photos, plants, decorative elements and interesting pieces of furniture to the space. A plant or two will definitely give the space life, photos with business partners, friends, family, inspirational posters, etc. will give the space character while other decorative elements like vases, mirrors, unusual lamps, pillows with interesting patterns etc. will surely add to the sophistication of the space.

Functionality

For every office space, functionality is of utmost importance. If the space doesn’t agree with your needs function-wise, no décor will help there.

The space

Be aware of the size of the space you are decorating so that you can use every part of it properly. Under/overestimating how much space you truly have is one of the biggest mistakes in choosing furniture.

Until you put a desk and chair in it, any empty home office looks huge. So, measure your space before you make any plan or purchase.

Make sure you use up the space wisely – don’t neglect even the smallest of empty spaces because using everything up is the way to go, especially if you are doing your business from home and are reduced to just your office.

Comfort

The computer workstation you are at needs to be custom-size and adjusted so it fits your height and posture. When this segment isn’t properly fit, you’ll struggle with your work and get distracted by the fact you are not comfortable and the work will suffer.

The chair you sit on should also be custom-set, as sitting is a big part of an office job. An ergonomic chair is the way to go, so investing in it would be a good idea.

Additional furniture

Consider placing a mini sofa (if your space allows it) in your space so you can lie down for a bit when feeling distressed. Sometimes even five minutes in a horizontal position can get the blood flowing faster and bring back the energy you wasted while working. Decorate it with interestingly colored or patterned cushions or sofa covers to bring some freshness into the room. Great office furniture can give you an extra comfort and make your office feel more like home.

Shelves and storage cabinets

Shelves are an important part of any office, whether home or company based, and so are storage cabinets.

You should have two sets of shelves – those above your table where you’d keep materials you need every day and shelves storing rarely used materials. Use verticals of the space to fill in with shelves – this is an amazing way to use up the space while making it functional at the same time.
