How to Renovate Your Workspace On a Budget!
Take a good look at your workspace. Is there anything you’d like to change? Look at the floor, the ceiling, the wall, or the desk you’re working from…
… what would you change if you could? Let the ideas flow and don’t hold anything back. Simply close your eyes and allow yourself to REALLY dream of the workspace you desire!
What do you imagine your workspace to be like? Maybe you wish for a bigger, brighter, and more welcoming room… or maybe… you wish for a room that’s designed for productivity and work.
Whatever your heart desires, there is a way to make it happen! So let’s look at how we can do this.
Do It Yourself (DIY) or Hire a Pro!
First, remember that you have choices about how you can freshen up your office space; you can have professionals do the work or you can do it yourself.
Of course, having someone else do it for you is more enjoyable. You get to sit back, relax and watch changes take place in front of your eyes. However, — it comes at a price — it is expensive and not something available for people on a tight budget.
But there is hope… doing the demolition, prep, and finishing work yourself can save you a ton of money. And if you can’t do it all by yourself, ask around for help! Family and friends are often willing to pitch in.
Now that we’re on the same page about your options, let’s look at the things that make the biggest difference in the workplace.
Perhaps the most important design element that gives off an impression of a change is the room’s layout. A well thought out layout can introduce efficiency; some extra floor area and extra height to play around with.
For an average person, more space means more room for decoration and furniture. For minimalists (and those who love under-furnished rooms) open spaces with a few focal points mean focus, style, and clarity.
Think of this as a solution where everyone is a winner!
So, what’s the next thing that brings positive transformation to a workspace?
New Look, a New Decor and Furnishings
Let’s be honest with one another here. When we buy new things for our home, it brings us joy and excitement. We can’t wait to get home and try them out!
Simple things can perk up a room — think of simple things, like a piece of art on the wall, a new television, or appliances. You don’t have to go crazy with expensive designer items. A breath of fresh air is all that’s needed.
It’s just like with anything else — when you spend enough time with it, it gets old and boring, you know? This is why we crave a space that looks, feels, and smells brand new!
Let There Be Color!
Painting a workspace in the right color can make the familiar look new. It’s simple, it’s cheap, and medium to light colors are guaranteed to cheer up your room.
The color you choose to live with has the power to make you feel different; happy, excited, or positive. It can also make you feel sad and bring down your mood, which isn’t what you would want from a room where you spend most of your day.
So, picking the right color is of paramount importance. I would suggest going for a color that fits your personality and style… or at the very least… going for a color that means something to you.
Get a Fluffy Companion
Perhaps what I’m about to tell you will sound surprising… and won’t fall under the ‘’renovation’’ category necessarily. But I feel that having a pet turns your house into a home.
Pet is so much more than a four legged friend — pets are the heart and soul of your family — they fill your home with love, laughter, and a wave of new energy!
Plus, there’s something comforting about the idea that there’s always someone waiting for you to come home from work.
