Decorating Your Personal Office Space

You spend a lot of your day at work. Your cubicle, desk, or office is your home away from home. Since you spend so much time there, it’s important to create a warm environment that will help keep you focused, motivated, and happy. Now that your company has found the perfect office space for you and your coworkers, it’s time to personalize your work zone.

For starters, before decorating, make sure you understand the company policies for decorating your personal work space. A little DIY office décor can help you create a cute cubicle, but be sure it’s allowed! Take a look at your coworker’s work space to get an idea as to what you can and cannot do. If you’re not sure, double check with your supervisor first.

When deciding how to decorate your office space, try to think about aspects of your life that are important to you or excite you. These tips can help you come up with unique office desk décor ideas that will keep you smiling and relaxed.

Plants: Healthy office plants are a great way to bring the outdoors inside. Not only can a good plant bring life into your work space, it can also help relax you. A low-maintenance plant is best, especially if you won’t be in the office daily to water it.
•Photos: Photographs are an easy way to motivate you. A picture of your child, your mother, or your fiancé help remind you of the reasons you work. Choose a photo that warms your heart or makes you laugh.
Organizers: A decluttered work space is one of the easiest ways to help you improve your work efficiency. By placing folder organizers or a nice pen cup on your desk, you give yourself some breathing room without the hassle of wondering where you put something. This allows you to focus on your job, not your clutter.
Calendar: Place a small whiteboard or paper calendar on the wall by your desk to place reminders or important due dates. This will help you stay organized while also giving yourself a little dry erase drawing board to doodle on when you need a tiny mental break.
Chargers: Keep your cubicle organized and efficient by having an office laptop charger and phone charger for your desk. This way you’ll never have to spend your day worrying about making your phone battery last for the ride home.
Trinkets: Although in certain cases, little trinkets may seem tacky, they’re actually a great way to express yourself through your personal office space. Small statues from your favorite vacation or a few items of something you collect are simple additions that can remind you to stay true to yourself.
Candy: You’ve been hard at work all day, let’s face it, you deserve a treat. Become the cool cubicle by placing a small bowl of candy, mints, or granola bars on your desk for you and your coworkers. Not only can this help boost your energy throughout the day, but they’re a great reward for working hard, which helps keep your spirit up.
