Your cubicle isn’t just where you work; it’s your home while you are at work. It’s where you spend 8+ hours a day tacking your to-do list, taking phone calls, answering e-mails and sipping on your coffee.
Unfortunately an office cubicle may not always feel like the coziest space. Bringing a personal touch into your space can also bring high levels of motivation and productivity.
Here are our top simple and easy tips for making your office cubicle feel a little cozier.
Raise your computer up to eye level. It’s ergonomically easier on the neck and as a result you will feel more comfortable in your cubicle all day. Innovative has many solutions to create this comfortable position. From articulating arms to pole mounts to sit-stand desks, Innovative has the ergonomic solution for you!
Add a plant. Whether it’s artificial or simply a plant variety that doesn’t require a lot of direct sunlight, plants add a little something extra to your cubicle. If you are in a cubicle that gets sunlight, consider a plant that required a little more maintenance. Having a live plant can also provide cleaner and fresher air.
Keeping plants in an office environment requires some forethought due to certain environmental conditions such as air conditioning, times when the office is empty etc.
Some plants which will thrive in an office environment include:
- Spider plants
- Rubber plant
- Peace lily
Add a desk lamp. Lighting is important when it comes to working, being able to concentrate and not overly straining your eyes. A desk lamp is a must-have and can set the tone for the style of the rest of your workspace, so you’ll want to be sure to include one that is fitting to you.
Get creative using accessories. While you still want your cubical to look professional, adding some creative uses for accessories can help to make a space feel more comfortable. You can simply use a vase for a pencil holder or a jewelry dish as a place for gathering those small office supplies that usually get lost on the floor.
Add some cozy knick knacks. Whether it’s a picture frame, a throw pillow on your chair or bookends, adding personal touches goes a long way towards making your cubicle feel more comfortable and more inviting for any visitors you may have.
