Tips for Refreshing Your Office Space

Has your office seen better days? If it has been a long time since you painted the walls and updated the decor, chance are the workspace has begun to feel old and dingy. Refreshing your office has a wealth of benefits for both you and your employees. Here are some tips on accomplishing a makeover.

Bring in the Outdoors

Spending 40 hours a week inside a confined space can rob everyone of a sense of the outdoors, especially if you have few or no windows. Buy or rent potted plants that will not only brighten up your space but also improve indoor air quality. Choose plants that thrive in low light conditions. Encourage workers to bring in a favorite plant to keep on their desk to bright their personal area.


Cluttered offices can be depressing. When you can’t find the supplies or information you need, your overall stress level increases. Create functional storage areas by utilizing vertical space through storage cubes or a tall file cabinet. Make things easy to find by labeling drawers so you’re not spending undue time searching.

Update Furniture

Manufacturers have made tremendous strides over the past decade in developing ergonomic furniture, particularly office chairs. Select chairs that will support the lumbar region of the spine for employees who spend most their time working at a desk during the day. When it comes to desks, think about buying ones that adjust to various heights so your employees can stand to work, if they so wish.

Clean and Paint

Nothing brightens and cleans an office like a new coat of paint. You’ll get rid of dirt marks, scuffs and other imperfections. Choose a contemporary neutral color that won’t be outdated within a year or two. At the same time, update art and other wall decorations.
