Your office is a reflection of your professional ethos, whether it’s in an office building or at home.
From lawyers and accountants to designers and writers, the style you choose will set the professional tone for your entire team. Is your company culture a hip, open vibe given to frequent sharing and impromptu meetings? Perhaps your desk choice would be a sleek and modern kidney-bean shape one. Or is your office a more hushed environment that seeks to inspire confidence in clients? Then your desk choice might be a more traditional, heavyweight affair with an antique finish and bronzed hardware.
Once you settle on a desk style, consider the space requirements and functionality you need. Keyboard drawers, hidden USB plugs, laptop shelves and storage solutions can all make your work day easier, not to mention tidier. We have to admit, a tidy office reflects an organized worker.
Don’t forget the finishing touches to create a visual environment that inspires productivity: lateral files, bookcases, area rugs, floor lamps and a wall clock. Meanwhile, adding pops of color with accessories will add some psychological energy to your work.
