Your office is not just a place for work. It is a place where you spend most of your day. It is a place where you thrive. You hire people who help you take leaps and bounds and become your family and in no time office becomes your second home. You obviously want your second home to be comfortable, to give energetic vibes and inspire you and your employees to work tirelessly. Many things can be done to make this happen. Let’s see the great possibilities.
1. Your color is your message
Though, subtly but each color you use to decorate your office passes a message to the people who be in there or visit. For colors, you can use your brand colors as a color scheme. Doing this will showcase what your brand is about. Colors influence the mood of a person. For example red transports energy, yellow inspires creativity, blue and white calms the mind, green gives a refreshing feeling. You can also go off the books and paint a particular corner of your office or even your desk with a bold color to make it stand out.
2. Give it nature’s touch
Plants are essential because nature is something in which people find peace. Add plants at the window corners where sunlight can shine on them. Just imagine how wonderful it will look. You can also place small plant pots on every desk. Wall plants are very popular and they can transform your space beautifully. Even the flowers are great for office decoration because flowers are joyful. It is better to have fresh ones but even fake flowers will work if your budget limits you.
3. Mirror mirror on the wall
A mirror is the in thing nowadays. You can use a mirror on a wall which shows a long but attractive view of your office space. The mirror creates depth and makes the room look bigger. Paint some local art around the mirror. You just have to choose a mirror which will embellish your office space in gorgeously. It can be any shape, size, with a metal frame, with a wooden frame, antique, etc.
4. Bedeck with unique pieces
Unique and small pieces of furniture can make your office look happening. Try not to use perfect square things when it comes to shapes to be used. If you talk about the entrance, a curved glass reception desk will give a good first impression as soon someone steps into your office. Modern armchairs like a round-shaped chair or triangle-shaped slick chairs will give a unique look. Placing armchairs in a lobby or in a lounge area creates a welcoming and relaxed environment.
5. Adorn it gracefully
Wall art that gives a happy nod or positive feeling will definitely work. Again wall art is the reflection of your thoughts so choose them wisely. A small library or shelves with creative and colourful bookends is a great idea. It shows that you value knowledge and in this way, you create a good impression on employees and visitors. Clocks can be placed anywhere – on a shelf, on a wall or on a desk. Clocks not only show time but they are a statement, a piece of a conversation. Clocks come in various colours, design, with writings and even clubbed with another art piece. Choose yours wisely.
6. No ghost zone
Sorry for the abrupt title but it’s catchy, right? Neither you nor your work will shine if your office is dark. You decorate your office with the most beautiful and meaningful things but nothing will speak for you if you keep your office dark. Your office must brighten up with light. Natural light is the best but if you don’t have enough windows then lamps or LED lights will do, especially white lights will do wonders.
7. Small things, big impact
One of the strong sense a human being has is the sense of smell. Yes, your office must smell good all day long so whenever someone arrives it will welcome them. Not only invest in some air fresheners but make sure that you also make a route for air circulation. You want your employees to feel good and your visiting clients to do business with you, right? Last but not least is to make sure you don’t keep loose wires, piled up papers, or stationaries here and there. It will make the office look cluttered.
A curved glass reception desk, most charming clocks, art pieces, armchairs, uniquely shaped stools or more, do your best to make a good impression.
Along with materialistic things, what matters first to make a good impression is your attitude towards your work and your employees. Some of the questions you must ask to be sure are-
Do you take your work seriously in front of your employees?
Do you come on time?
Do you respect them?
Do you understand their strengths and weaknesses?
Do you motivate them with positive thoughts and examples?
Do you support them to grow?
Do you stand in front of them as an ideal example of what they want to be like in the coming years?
Yes, these questions matter to create a good impression in front of people with whom you work within the office and if you want to create a good example in front of your clients, you need to focus on things like-keep their trust intact, keep their matters confidential, deliver on-time, be transparent, respect your office people in front of your clients, whatever you do, do with quality, show them that they’re important even if they give you a small business, etc. You can do great, just start doing!
