Your business might be looking a little dreary lately; it’s whitewashed and boring, and there seems to be little to no life inside the four walls you work out of. Of course, it still functions properly, and you’re proud of how safe and secure you’ve made the place, but now you’re stuck looking at a limp and pale scene in front of you. How do you change this?
Well, you think about ways to brighten your workplace up a little, and then you put them into practice. Don’t worry, there’s a lot more ways to do this than you might first think; we’ve got through some of the most accessible and scene changing ways below.
Shed the Corporate Visage
The corporate visage is probably what’s got you done the most. But what exactly does this mean? Well, it’s the traditional ‘professional’ look that a lot of modern businesses try to retain – a sense of minimalism, as well as shades of black and white across the walls and floor. Of course, this can work for a lot of companies, but maybe not for yours.
Think about adding some creature comforts to your office space. Fiction books, CD stands full of all the old albums you love, bulletin boards where anything can be pinned – think about what’s important to you, your staff, and your business or brand as a whole, and get it installed within your office space. It helps to build and spread your message, impress visitors, and ensure you’re happy with your working space.
Focus on Your Desk Space
Your desk is a big part of your business scene; it’s where most of the work gets done, and that’s true for every single employee that works for you. So, why not think about revitalising this part of your office first of all? Let your employees bring their own effects in, to personalise their spaces a little more, and even think about changing the look of company issued stationary too!
Get Creative with Your Wall Decor
Your walls are always going to draw attention, so it’s time to put some effort into them. At the very least, make sure you paint them a different color; something that’ll help your employees to work more happily and productively, and something that helps to solidify your brand image too.
And finally, make sure you signpost your place of work very clearly. People need to know where they’re going, and you need to ensure new hires and visitors alike can quickly acclimate to the office. Not to mention just how creative you can get with signs; a bit of color, and the right font, and the right design of some ADA signs themselves and you’ll have a lot more personality to hang up on the walls.
Your business scene might need a bit of work, but you might just have the time and resources to revitalise it right now. Make sure you keep the above ideas in mind for creating harmony.
