5 Tips For Decorating Your Office

You spend most of your day in the office, so it’s important that it feels like a place you’d want to be. Luckily, decorating your office doesn’t have to be stressful or time-consuming. Here are five tips for creating an awesome work environment:

Think outside the cubicle

When you’re setting up your workstation, don’t feel like you have to use a cubicle. You can get creative with furniture and accessories by using something that is already in the office: partition walls.

Partition walls are essentially just thin walls between offices or meeting rooms. They’re usually not too high, so they can be used as bookshelves or standing desks. In fact, if you set up your computer on top of a partition wall and use it as a monitor stand, then you can use the bottom half of the same partition to hold books.

Make your space functional

When you’re working from home, it’s easy to get sucked into the “couch potato” lifestyle. But that doesn’t mean your office can’t be fun. Here are some ideas for making your space functional and fun:

  • Make sure your desk fits your needs. If it’s too small or too big, you’ll waste time searching for things.
  • Find a chair that is comfortable and supportive so you can sit up straight while working at the computer all day long—this will help prevent back pain and keep your energy level high throughout the day.
  • Get a filing cabinet if you need somewhere to store documents (or even just bills) out of sight but close at hand so they don’t clutter up.

Create a focal point

A focal point is a place where you draw the eye. It’s a bold color or piece of furniture, or a collection of items that are visually interesting and memorable. A plant can be a focal point if it catches your attention in an office space that otherwise lacks greenery.

Focal points can be used to create order in an otherwise chaotic environment. They’re perfect for giving your office its own sense of personality and style, too.

Use color strategically

You may be tempted to use every piece of furniture you have in your office space in Amsterdam, but think about how each one will stand out on its own and also work together with all the other pieces around it. You can use color—a bold, bright hue or something softer and more neutral—to draw attention to a particular piece and make it stand out from the rest of your desk space.

It’s also important to know what kind of mood you want your office to convey when choosing colors for individual pieces of furniture.

  • If you want an elegant look that inspires creativity, consider using deep blue or purple hues along with white accessories such as lamps and deskscapes.
  • If you want something more casual yet still professional-looking, go for greens and earth tones like browns or tans.
  • If you want something modern but not cold (because let’s face it: no one likes working in an icebox), try bright reds combined with grays or blacks.


I hope these tips have given you some ideas for how to decorate your office. If you’re feeling a bit stuck, don’t worry—just take your time and remember that it doesn’t have to be perfect.
