Here are 10 tips for decorating an executive office space to make it a productive yet pleasant environment.
1.Put together a design board. You don’t need to be a professional to do this. Before you begin decorating make a poster board or bulletin board together with all the swatches and samples you have reviewed before buying. This will give you a better idea of what all of your colors and textures look like together.
2.Plan ahead. If your designing for someone this should give you an opportunity to find out more about them. Their favorite colors, what they like in furniture, décor etc. Put together a list of things you will need to find and do to keep yourself organized.
3.Splash with color. A fresh coat of paint on your walls can set the mood of your environment. For an executive office, it should be simple yet inviting. So, choose a color based on your work environment. A light beige, soft green, or ivory are neutral colors that will help add life yet professionalism to the space. If you choose a color that stays within a neutral color palette, another thing you can try is to paint two walls one color and two another to add depth in the space. Be sure to choose a high quality paint to avoid having to do touch-ups.
4.Furnish with interest. The furniture you choose plays a huge part in the look and feel of the space. As with your wall color you want to choose furniture that reflects your industry. Furnishing can be expensive but a good rule to stick too is: buy only furniture that matches. If you have mismatched tables and chairs it can look like you just threw together whatever you could find.
5.Don’t forget the walls. A few nice photos, prints or paintings on the wall can really liven up the space. Bare walls give an un-lived in feel which can affect the overall mood of you, your clients and your employees.
6.Make it eco-friendly. Plants or trees can actually make you feel like you’re less cut off from the outside world. This is not to say you should get crazy with plants and make your office a jungle but a cool orchid, or small tree can add a lot of life to an office. Make sure you check what kind of atmosphere and light your plant needs and if it will work with your space.
7.Accessorize with thought. What kinds of things would help productivity? You could add a framed diploma or achievement of some sort on the wall. A framed photo of family or a loved one can make a professional space feel a little more inviting. Whatever you decide to add, make sure it will help boost morale and productivity.
8.Create a sense of openness. When deciding where to place furniture make sure you remember that less clutter equals less stress. Place large furniture like bookshelves or large sofas against walls.
9.Lighting is a key. If your office space does not have enough natural light from windows and florescent lights are your only option consider getting some lamps. One tall standing lamp in the corner and another one near your desk can make a huge difference. Create the right lighting balance by testing out different lighting fixtures.
10.Be mindful of clutter. If you tend to have a hard time keeping things straight make sure you have some filing cabinets or other organizational furnishings to help you stay organized. A computer, telephone and framed photo is about all you need on your desk. The rest you can tuck away in a drawer.
