Increase Productivity At Work With Interior Design Tips
Productivity seems to be this thing we either wake up with or not. Someday we have it. Other days it’s gone and impossible to find. But what if our environment could play a major role in increasing our productivity at work?
Whether you are designing a home office or you are ready to go back to an in-person office, make sure to implement these ideas to improve your productivity and wellbeing while working.
Get the most out of your day and feel re-energized by the end of it.
Natural lighting has a huge effect on our productivity, but also our wellbeing, our general mood, and our peace of mind.
Without proper exposure to natural light throughout the day, your sleep quality will lower, health problems will start appearing, you will find yourself feeling more grumpy and with a more negative state of mind… and yes your productivity will be greatly affected.
So make sure to get as much natural light as you can:
- Put your office close to a window
- Remove what may block natural light to come in (heavy window treatments, furniture in front of windows, etc.)
- If you still lack natural light in your workplace and you cannot do much about it make sure to take regular breaks and go walk outside or sit by a window when you can
You will see your productivity and creativity starting to increase throughout the day.
A cold, non-personal workplace might seem less distracting but it won’t help to be more productive. On the contrary, an inspiring decoration and design in your office that makes you feel happy will support your creativity and productivity.
Start with minimalist decor and add a few bigger art pieces. This will help you to reach a great balance between a cold uncluttered space and an overwhelming workplace.
Pick decoration that makes you happy and inspired. This could be linked to a hobby you have, a travel destination, etc.
Having plants in your office is a great way to purify the air, lower stress, and anxiety… and of course also increase productivity. Plants make the place more lively and increase the mood of the room. Give it a try!
Productivity doesn’t increase just by working more. Having a balanced lifestyle and nurturing breaks will help you to feel more focused and productive. Add a space dedicated to lounging and being social. Human interactions are also an important aspect to stay motivated, happy, and productive at work. Having a lounge area where you can both relax and interact with other people will allow you to go back to work feeling reenergized, relaxed, and more content.
