You spend so long at work, 5 or 6 days a week. 8 or 9 hours a day sat at your desk. Why not make your workspace feel more homey? As you look around, each cubicle desk is the same, if you look away from your work station you see the plain white walls, or those drab office carpet tiles. Your office cubicle is boring, as it’s dry and plain. Or you could be different.
A well decorated office cubicle shows you who are as a person, a bit like expressing yourself. Also, the pod decoration ideas must not be too wild, remember it is your workplace and not your home. You don’t want to be upsetting the boss now. Make it personal, but without cluttering the work area.
Some of these accessory ideas can be found in most office supply shops:
• Mouse mats
• Pen stands
• Paper weights
• Bulletin boards
• Plants – but something not too large
Cubicle Decor Ideas
The first thing you should do before personalizing your workspace is to check with your boss. Simple things such as changing your background and screen saver shouldn’t be an issue.
Good soft lighting arrangements in the office help you to overcome the monitor eyestrain. Much of the florescent lights used in offices can be damaging to the eyes. An idea would be to use a lamp shade on your office or desk lamp.
Another accessory that you can add to your cubicle decoration is a notice board. The bulletin board may be placed just outside your personal work area. If you are the head of your department, you can add the nearing work deadlines to be completed, upcoming events and projects. The bulletin board can be decorated to your chosen theme.
The best way without doubt to personalize your work area is photos. Photos of family, pets and loved ones. Then maybe attach post it notes to your photos.
Plants are ideal to take your mind away from the feel of work. They add a real ambience to your work station. Something that isn’t too large. A nice looking cactus that doesn’t grow to a large size would be ideal. They are low maintenance, small, and don’t grow quickly.
