One more secret can help you derive as much benefit from your working space as possible.

Go minimalist.

This implies keeping the room and your desk tidy, and clutter free. But that’s no all. 

Keep the main tools of the trade to hand easily, but also use good storage solutions to keep your space organised and streamlined. 

Look out for stylish and clever baskets and boxes that can be used for excellent desk and worspace organisation.

Of course, you can adapt repurpose old containers to your needs and your interior style. This means you create a space that is unique and personal to you.

We highly recommend using these storage solutions for your most frequently used items, and for everything else, hide them in drawers and cupboards or a filing cabinet. 

If you choose to decorate your workspace in this way, you will find it easier to work in your streamlined, clutter free space. 


Decorate Your Workspace – Get a Plant

The next suggestion is one that we love and feel strongly that everyone should adopt.

Add some plants or adding flowers, whether real or artificial, to our workspace to bring the room to life and connect you to a biophilic design. 

Choose flowers and you’ll want to refresh them frequently – but they do add plenty of colour and vibrancy. 

If you love greenery, choose plants that thrive in your room (and if you’re not green fingered, choose artificial or faux plants instead).

But whatever flowers or plants you use in designing your workspace corner, they will benefit your well-being and emotional state, as they help produce cleaner air, motivating you to be energetic and creative.

Plants and flowers in your desk are are a sure way to keep a clear head and help you focus.
