Greenery

If you fancy testing the water with fresh flowers, before you commit to plants, try to display them in a vase, to be able to add greenery to your office as well as the many designs from the vases and planters.

As well as improvement in designs, the plants and flowers you add to your office space can also help to keep the air fresh by removing carbon dioxide and adding oxygen.

Desks

From a standing desk to a corner table, the working environment can be changed by the spaces you are working on. 

If you choose to have a standing desk, this can have some health benefits in comparison to sitting down at a desk all day.

Standing desks appear to have a positive influence on overall well-being whilst working. In one 7-week study, participants using standing desks reported less stress and fatigue than those who remained seated the entire workday.

Even if you choose to stay seated, there are many accessories which will help improve productivity and your health throughout the day.

Accessories

As well as keeping your items organised, you can keep your devices charged, for them important phone calls - which is a bonus!

As well as organising your smaller items, you need to remember about those pesky cables which are always getting tangled. When using cables, if you use these tips you can keep your cables under control:

  • Wireless: As Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are continuously improving, you may be able to replace and remove some of those wires altogether.

  • Labelling: Especially when you have a larger amount of cables, figuring out which cable goes to which plug can be time-consuming, so labelling your cables is an important task for future use and label them so you don't have to trace it back.

  • DIY: If you want to be more creative, you can create your own cable tidy and organisers. Once the cable accessories have been designed and created, you can add them to your cable to add extra design to your home office.
