Create A Feature Wall

Even small spaces will have some wall space, and these are an excellent area to adorn with some fun, inspirational, and motivating design. You can look at sites like and consider creating a custom neon sign made; perhaps your business name, a meaningful quote, or even something cheeky, could be the boost the space needs. Artwork and prints relating to your business and what you do, can also adorn the walls. Ask your team to bring in their favorite photos and postcards so that they can be pegged up along some copper wire. Picture shelves are an excellent way to change the art regularly, and they can be great for displaying books and other interior accessories too. The wall will go from drab to designer in no time.

Give It Plenty Of Life

Plants and fresh flowers may seem like unnecessary additions; however, numerous studies have shown that fresh greenery in your workspace, has several benefits. They are a way to bring nature and the outdoors, inside; this reduces stress and anxiety, leading to better productivity. Popping plants on everyone’s desk will help to strike a balance, they can be responsible for watering them, and it will allow them to refocus. Plants also help to clean the air, ensuring that you’re not working in a stagnant and stuffy environment. Better yet, they are an affordable way to add interest to the interior and benefit your team.

Ensure There’s Comfort

Keeping the space clean, clear, and tidy is the first way you can create a comfortable environment to work in. Therefore, make sure that cleanliness in the office is a priority, and perhaps consider re-adjusting the layout, and how people sit when they work. If you’re able, invest in good quality ergonomic desk chairs so that your team won’t suffer poor posture when they need to spend long hours at their desk. Giving everyone enough surface area and ample storage are also great ways to make sure that your staff remains comfortable throughout their working day. It’s worth ensuring that your small business can thrive in its surroundings, so you’ll have a dedicated team of happy employees.
