The office. Not just a place that reminds you of a quirky television show but a room that immediately puts your mind to action (at least, that’s the hope). The office is a place meant to focus your wandering imagination and put you in the right state of mind to work efficiently. A room where things get done, emails get sent, and many a cup of coffee are drunk. But perhaps most importantly, without the office there would be no excuse to buy brightly colored folios and one-of-a-kind cabinets!
An office speaks volumes about the person that occupies it, and that’s why it’s important to curate the space specifically to you. The way you take care of your workspace says a lot about how you take care of many other things.
Do you want to tell others that you are streamlined, minimalistic and efficient with a sleek, no-clutter type of space? Or do you value comfort, putting others at ease and garnering a sense of confidentiality with warm colors, comfy chairs and low lights?
It’s important for your office to say something to others but just as important that it speaks to you as well. If you have a home office, it’s easy to crawl back into bed and forget about today’s paperwork, so you need your office to make you excited to get up in the morning. That might mean bright, invigorating colors and lush carpets, or possibly an elegant diffuser in the corner of the room, sprinkling fresh scents into the air that immediately perk you up.
If your workspace isn’t so close to home the same principles apply, although without the ability to crawl into the copy room and take a nap (albeit there might be the temptation). Every office space needs that personal touch.
When it comes to the overall feel of the room, you might want lots of light, less-light, or just a mellow ambiance to set your mind at ease. Whatever you need to get into the workflow, the right window coverings can help you get there!
