It’s been more than a year now since you came to your new work place and took over your new office. First of all, you were busy coping with a new home and learning a new job, but now that you’re settled in you start noticing again the same things that you noticed when you first took over your office.
The walls are a boring, drab colour and looking decidedly depressing, the sun streaming in through the heavy duty blinds is barely enough to light a mouse hole and the furniture is just about as grotty and plain as it can get. You reckon that an acceptable amount of time has passed for you to start an office decorating project.
Of course, before you start it’s always good to make certain that the powers that be don’t have a problem with your plans. And remember that it is only an office and you should treat your decorating plans as such.
Painting the walls a bright red colour possibly might not work. However, you could brighten things up a bit by repainting the walls a bright and airy colour that won’t be an eyesore to anyone, least of all you. Then you could always take down those ancient blinds that have been hanging there since the early 1980’s and replace them with something more pleasing and modern.
On the other hand, if the whole of the office is done up in the same style with the same blinds hanging on each window, your a la mode changes might not go down too well with your colleagues. So, think twice before making drastic changes that alter the whole style and dynamic of the entire office.
However, there are easier methods you can use to carry out your office decorating ideas without too much trouble to you and which doesn’t necessarily need too much thought either. You can brighten up the appearance of any room by placing a couple of flowering plants here and there around your office.
But, if you’re at all like me and you don’t have green fingers or if your presence is death to any plants near you, then maybe you shouldn’t bother with plants. You could however bring in some bright prints and hang them up on your walls. Or perhaps you have children and they have painted some smashing pictures for you.
These also work well, and will show your colleagues another side of you. Don’t get stressed out over anything though. You really don’t need a simple redecorating job to add to the rest of your worries and besides an office decorating project should be fun and stress free.
Remember, your office decorating project need not entail your turning the whole office, or yourself, on its head. It should be something that you can live with on a daily basis.
After all, you spend a lot of the day at your office, it should be a place where you can be just as at ease as you are in your own home.
