Our office is like our second home if not more we spent almost as much time at our workspace as our home. Hence, there is no reason why we should leave it plain and boring. Just like our rooms and homes our desk should be a reflection of who we are and an extension of our personality. Here are simple desk organisation and decorations ideas to keep you inspired at all times.
1. Cute File Organisers
If you are a lawyer or CA, who deals with a lot of paperwork, then an organiser will be a lifesaver for you! It will keep all your paperwork organised and accessible and make work a lot easier and efficient.
2. Cute notebooks
If you have to make notes and keep a note of things at work, then you might as well do it with cute notebooks and organisers.
DIY your notebook: Make your work diaries and notebook a lot more organised by adding a pouch on the inside to hold receipts and business cards. Simply glue on an envelope on the inside of the notebook and there you have your DIY pouch on the notebook.
3. Spray paint away
Simply buy spray paint in chic colours such as rose gold, old gold, or mint green and pink, if you are a more colourful person then spray your desk, your mugs, your stationery holders, edges of your bulletin board, drawers or just the knobs of your drawers.
If you use a mouse while working then funky and colourful mouse pads can add a splash of colour to your desk.
5. Revamp up your bulletin board
A bulletin board is almost in every office. Make your bulletin board stand out by covering it with a light fabric in a cheerful colour and pin on your favourite polaroid shots, inspirational quotes or pictures of loved ones along with your to-do list.
6. Clipboard DIY
No bulletin board? No problem. Remember those exam boards we used in school? Just spray paint them or cover them with colourful papers, decorative paper (or wallpaper leftovers or samples) to brighten basic clipboards. Hang the clipboard up using a double-sided tape and use it as your very own DIY bulletin board.
7. Have a theme in mind
When decorating your desk keep a theme in mind, do not go for fads as you will get bored of it soon. Stick to what you like whether it is a burst of colours, monotone or rose gold.
8. Pick out what you need and then pick boxes and containers to store it all
Never work the other way round as it will only cause clutter. Instead first pick what you need and then pick storage space to organise it.
9. Lighting is key
Those harsh tube lights and white lights in the office can be quite depressing, so bring your own lights! Cute fairy lights can be tucked in a jar or a simple glass bottle to make your own lamp. Alternatively, you could also use the fairy lights to decorate your bulletin board or just lay them on your desk like little trinkets.
10. Cord organizers
Have extra clips lying around? Use them as budget-friendly cord organisers for easy charging access.
11. Add a plant
Not only does adding a plant on your desk gives colour to your desk, but it also makes you feel more connected to nature and gives away positive vibes.
