Have you ever noticed that sometimes all you need to get your creative flow and productivity back is a new environment? Here are x5 simple ways you can refresh your workspace to start the day on a clean slate.
Furniture & Furnishings
Updating furniture within a space is a great way to refresh - look for furniture that combines form & function. Understanding what your workspace needs are as well as style preferences when purchasing furniture will mean you’ll create a space is functional. Do you need a desk with a larger surface area? A cupboard or shelf that needs to house objects/products or do you have a lot of paperwork that needs to be filed? Soft furnishings like curtains can be a cost effective and simple way to change up the mood and colour palette of a room.
The Little Things
Add personal touches that make the space a joy to be in. From candles, plants, lighting, photos of loved ones to popping on your favourite playlist every morning or having a special mug to have your morning coffee/tea in. Make it your own and a space you’re inspired by.
Physically altering the layout of your space is a very effective way to revamp your working environment, during different seasons any natural light will hit different areas of a room - it’s always nice to refresh a space as the seasons change to experience the best the space has to offer. From moving your desk from one side of the room to the other, or simply rearranging your stationery, books and objects slightly so it feels new. And... make sure you de-clutter your space at least once a week.
An easy way to update a space with minimal effort is with artwork or a moodboard. If you’re feeling like your room is too minimal and plain, invest in a white pin-board and start adding pieces that create an inspiring vibe and atmosphere. From quotes and a visual reference of your goals, to inspirational imagery and pictures of brands you love. There are no rules, so get creative and change things up. Change your mood-board and colour palette or theme as frequently as you need.
Revamp your workspace with some functional favourites to keep you organised. From wall calendars and notepads to a diary and notepad, stationery is one of the easiest ways to change your desk in a functional way. There is nothing quite like starting a fresh notebook to get a new project, idea or week underway.
TIP: A clean space = a clear mind. There is nothing worse than starting your day the in a cluttered, messy space. Always tidy up your space at the end of the day, if you work from home without a dedicated desk/office space it's also beneficial to pack up your work area each night to allow yourself mental space between work and home life.
