Your business is essentially home away from home and while you want it to have many creature comforts we enjoy, you also need it to maintain a professional image. This balance is easy to obtain using these decorating tips we have gathered!
4 Office Decorating Tips
1. Make a Good First Impression: Making a good first impression is something we’ve heard about for most of our lives in preparation for the workforce. It doesn’t just stop at your personal demeanor; you also need to take your business space into consideration. Take an honest look at your business, almost as if you were a client visiting the office. Is it clean, organized, and inviting?
2. Add Some Color: The color(s) and décor of your office should reflect the business and its services. Legal offices, for example, tend to stick to the neutral tones, but adding a pop of color can bring life into the building. Whereas creative businesses tend to have more color throughout the office, but, these offices should keep in mind that too much can be overwhelming. The key to color is moderation!
3. Remove the Clutter: Throughout the life of your business you’re apt to acquire a stack of papers, documents, and other office debris. These piles are rarely dealt with, even though we tell ourselves we’ll take care of them. If the piles aren’t handled accordingly, they could cost you potential business as well as valuable time. Your staff could potentially spend a large amount of time looking for a paper or document that could be in one pile or another.
4. Get Organized: In addition to removing clutter, your office needs to get organized! This may not seem like it’s a part of decorating, but, it is. There’s more to decorating than painting and hanging art. Create functional spaces for specific office activities. For example, your printer, copier, and fax machine should have their own space with their supplies that keep them running.
