6 Simple Ways To Improve Your Office Space

When you work in an office, it's easy for the space to become uninspired over time. Everyone has a desk and a computer and a chair. That environment may be perfectly fine for some, but for others, the feel of a space can really influence how productive you are in your work. If you want to improve the way your workplace looks and feels, here are six simple tips that can help!

1. Comfortable Furniture Pieces

The first step to improving your office space is to add comfortable furniture. The goal here is not only to make the room look appealing but also to ensure that you are able to focus on your work without being distracted by pain or discomfort. The key to furniture in an office is balancing comfortability with style and design.

Rather than selecting the most stylish office chair, go for one with ergonomic features that suits the way you enjoy sitting and your desk height. If you’re a more dynamic worker, consider investing in an adjustable standing desk or an exercise-ball chair. Perhaps even consider adding a cozy lounge chair to your office room if space allows, for those moments you need to take a break.

2. Air Purifier

If you’re going to be spending all day indoors, it’s so important to remove toxicity from the air!

Air purifiers are a great tool for keeping your office space clean and healthy. They remove dust, pollen, and other contaminants from the air to keep it fresh and to help you focus on work, instead of sneezing or coughing. With advancements in technology, air purifying systems are not only easier to obtain, but are much more efficient and affordable.

3. UV Light

Adding a UV light is a great way to disinfect your office while simultaneously brightening it up. UV light kills bacteria and viruses, so it's safe for humans. It can also be used to clean surfaces like desks, chairs, and floors. You can also use UV light to prevent mold growth in your office. 

Nowadays there are special UV light tools designed specifically for the sanitation of home offices. If you’re looking to avoid the common cold this year, consider checking them out!

4. Phone Booths

A phone booth in your office space might sound crazy, but it could actually be a lifesaver. If you’re teleworking in a busy home with loud children or other distracting activities, zoom meetings can be a disaster. Phone booths provide noise cancellation, privacy, and an environment for extreme focus when you need it. They’re usually equipped with noise-absorbing technology that keep out unwanted sounds!

The phone booth concept is also great for people who work in an office that’s located in a noisy, urban area. If there are too many distractions around you while you are trying to concentrate on your work, it can be very frustrating. Having an enclosed and quiet space, such as a phone booth, can help reduce noise levels and allow employees to focus more easily.

5. Fun Colors

Colors can be used to improve mood, so why not improve your mood while working? The right colors can make a space feel more open, inviting, and relaxing. If you want to create an upbeat atmosphere in your office space, try adding light and bright colors to your walls. If you want your office to feel more welcoming and calm, opt for softer shades of blue or green instead.

If you’re looking for a fast and relatively easy way to completely transform the feel of your office, start with the paint on the walls! If you have no idea where to start, the team at DeLeers can help you put together the best color palette for your space.

6. Greenery & Plants

Plants are a great way to instantly transform and improve your office space. Not only do they help improve air quality, but they can also help you focus and relax, as well as sleep better.

Plants remove toxins from the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen through photosynthesis. They also reduce all sorts of indoor pollutants, such as VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that can cause dry eyes and skin irritation. Adding leafy greens to your space will surely improve the feeling in the air! 

Plants are more than just practical, though. Plants are known to increase dopamine and focus levels, increasing happiness and productivity. They’re also known to help relax people, and keep them in the present moment. This can be one of the most budget-friendly ways to change up a tired office space.
