This past year has witnessed most working professionals confined to the four walls of their house, ever since Work From Home (WFH) became the new normal. While many have reported feeling grateful for being able to spend time with their families, the blurring of work life and home life boundaries has been hard on everyone. As people adapt to spending 8-10 hours on average at their makeshift workstation at home, many are hoping to modify their work environment.
Work from Home with a Bad Setup Can Hamper Productivity.
Considering WFH is here to stay, working professionals need to have a comfortable and optimal workstation at home. An ergonomic chair, or a multi-purpose work table are probably things you already have, or know about. In case you are looking for some ideas beyond the usual WFH furniture options to jazz up your workspace, here are some tips and ideas to help you transform your workstation at home:
Light Up Your Workspace With These Cool Lights
If you have ever considered adding some cool string lights over your desk, this is your cue to do it. A quirky lamp, or a hanging light or just some simple rice lights can both illuminate your workspace and elevate its aesthetic. A beautiful workstation is bound to inspire your creativity and lift up your mood.
Personalise Your Corner With Choice Home Decor Elements
Your workdesk should reflect your personality and who you are. Do you like motivational quotes from a favourite author? Put up some posters of these quotes or opt for some quirky wall art.
Do you miss travelling and want to venture out on wild adventures? Collect some postcards of places you want to visit and pin them up on your softboard or hang them from the wires of your overhead lights. Make your corner your own with art, posters, showpieces and cute home decor elements.
Add Select Plants To Your Workstation
Studies have shown that plants play a crucial role in reducing stress when used as part of home decor. Using plants to decorate your workspace can instantly jazz up your workspace, and help bring about a peaceful and serene ambience at your work desk. You ideally need to use some low-maintenance plants such as these:
- Devil’s Ivy (Epipremnum aureum)
- Peace lilies
- Succulents and Cacti
- Snake Plant
- English Ivy
