Workstation Decor Ideas
1. Unique Personalized Coffee Mugs
If you’re a coffee lover and cannot part from your caffeine, then get your own personalized mug. Go for unique and quirky designs and add a personal touch by painting it with permanent markers or paint. I love the girl boss mug – that’s a cool one!
2. Photo Displays on Wall
If you have your own cubicle, Frame pictures of your loved ones or your artwork and hang it on the wall. This saves space and enlivens up the empty spaces near your desk.
You can also opt for polaroids. You can relive the memories by writing dates on them. Clip them on a string and hang them on the wall or you can stick them to your desk too!
3. Motivational Quotes at Workplace
If your workplace doesn’t allow you to have photographs, go for print-outs of motivational quotes. You can frame them or just pin them up at your work space. If you’re an artist, try hand lettering them yourself for a personal touch.
4. Office Wall Art Decor Ideas
How cool would it be to have graffiti on your office walls? I’m sure that’d make it the coolest place to work. But that’s to much to ask for. LOL! So, you can create your own wall art by utilizing the vertical spaces.
Instead of piling up the files, papers, notes and even your pens, you can organize them using file pockets. You can hang your pen stands on an iron rod.
You can make use of your writing pads to save notes and important papers too. You can also add string lights (if you’re allowed to) for a bright look!
If you’re in a creative field and have more pictoral illustrations, then you should definitely try the workstation decor idea from IKEA. Place mounted knobs on the wall and tie a thick bright ribbon and voila! You can clip on the illustrations, notes or pictures!
5. Indoor Plants at Work
Greenery at workplace can lift up your mood instantly. If you’re a plant lover, then get some indoor plants for your desk and you can have hanging plants on your wall, too. You can go for flower vases or a cactus if you feel it’s too difficult to maintain plants.
6. Patterned Wallpaper at Workstation
Use removable wallpapers on walls for an unconventional look. Go for interesting prints and patterns to make your workstation more exciting. But don’t go overboard with too many prints and colors. Keep it minimalistic and keep your work culture and surrounding in mind while choosing the right one.
7. Quirky Desk Accessories
If workstation decor is not allowed, then go for some cool creative desk accessories. You can have personalized diaries, notepads, pens and cushions. Fun mouse pads and colorful keyboards are a great idea to make your workplace more interesting.
