Decorating Your Home Office for Success

Mar 25, 2008
Spring is coming and as we all know the traditional spring cleaning comes right along with the season. I am not going to assume you are a messy person, however you should still take into consideration the fact you can still organize a bit more. I don't think it will be hard to admit that we all have our own bit of cleaning to do.

For your desk try freeing up space by putting papers onto a wall shelf. If you need your papers, try installing a small shelf next to your desk so you can easily access it. By removing clutter in front of you, you create more free space to better think up new ways to improve your business and work more efficiently.

Inspiration is something we all need to be driven to succeed. One way to inspire yourself is to rearrange your current furniture settings. This method is free and can change your outlook on your daily entrance into your office space giving you new motivation for the day. Try having your desk face a window so you can enjoy the view of some spring time plants ,flowers, and some sunshine.

If you cannot get your desk to a good window view try grabbing a few household plants and setting them into your office environment. The key to most of this article is to make yourself feel clear and happy. You need to have a positive environment to produce positive results.

Many of us get into the mode that we must not enjoy work especially if it is at home. Many may feel guilty due to the fact they get to stay home and feel they should be punished for the luxury. You must break free of this cycle and there is no better way than to make your office bright, clean, and cheerful.

I am not saying to turn your office into an entire vacation space here. You need to maintain some professionalism, but make sure you don't suffer at the hand of complete sterile office environments. Creativity needs to flow and you need to make sure you utilize that creativity to the max as the one person team.

Colors are another aspect you want to consider when redecorating your home office. Maybe you could use a more inspirational color for your walls, something that invigorates your senses and gets you pumped up. Brighter colors are known to stimulate the senses and build energy while muted toned down colors are less distracting and may help you focus better on work.

Finding the right color for your personality is important. You don't want to pick the wrong color and end up in a cluttered state of mind, so choose wisely which color you want to paint your office if you decide to do so. Remind yourself that this is going to be your place of business, so don't get lost in romanticizing the colors you would want for a Caribbean vacation, you might end up daydreaming instead of working proactively towards your goals.

If you are having troubles coming up with ideas, there is software that lets you design new layouts for your office space. One popular program is by Better Homes and Gardens called Better Homes and Gardens Interior Designer. This software can better help you design a dream office solution that works best for you.

By changing your office space and outlook you will transfer the great feelings you have inside towards your business goals while feeling healthier and more clear minded. So get ready to get your hands dirty and start changing that office around!
