Pretty and Productive: Design Tips for Boring Office Spaces

As an industrial interior designer, I get asked a lot by people who want to make their work spaces look more appealing than the usual white and gray walls that they’re stuck with. While I don’t think offices will allow their employees to paint their walls bright red, there are little details that can be added to the typically boring cubicle or corner that people call their workspace.

Choose colorful desk decorations

This tip is not just for the ladies. Even guys can feel the break in monotony with an electric blue clock or a bright orange pen holder. For me, the key to breaking the spell of boredom with a good color scheme. Prints are also a good way to bring life to a desk or a wall. But for all my friends out there who would like to stick with the industrial gray-white-black color scheme, a lot could be done with those three hues too. Perhaps using monochromatic or metallic desk accessories could make your space stand out.

Adorn the walls

Putting up a poster or even a small picture of the things you love can change the ambiance of your workspace. To be safe on the side, try pinning all your posters and other items artfully onto a corkboard. When you’re stuck finishing financial reports, it’s good to have some motivation. Being creative with wall notes and decors could also be a good way to boost creativity.
