Creative SanctuaryAfter a grueling workday, nothing feels better than coming home to your loved ones, spending time on your comfy couch and catching up on that Hulu series. However, if you’re like most people, you spend the majority of your time in the office.

You often wonder what it would be like to wake up one day and actually feel excited about work. You always loathed your boring office surroundings that if you had the freedom, you would get unique furniture from Urban9-5 to liven up the place. For now, try these simple tweaks in your own desk to form a pleasing office space.

1. Add some personality.

Decorative items, souvenirs, photographs and other personal artifacts make your home a home. Place items in your desk that remind you of your loved ones, cherished memories and anything that makes you smile. Display items, quotes, and messages that inspire you to work harder. Make an inspiration board with all the photos that represent what you want to achieve in life.

2. Bring nature inside and brighten your space.

A touch of nature in your office space can help you feel calmer during stressful situations. Bring fresh orchids, plants, a seashell or even a mini aquarium with a colorful fish. When it comes to lighting, you should know that the right lighting can dramatically change your behavior, productivity, hormonal balance and mood. Utilize natural light to your advantage as much as possible, or improve the look of your space with unique lamps.

3. Live clutter-free and clean.

White noise, dirt, and clutter are distractions to your workspace. Get rid of unnecessary items on your floors, walls, and other surfaces. You will have a more peaceful mind with a clutter-free desk. Start a habit of cleaning up your desk at the end of the day, so you will always begin your work the next day with a clean and pleasant view.

The key to revamping your desk space is in the details. Do not over decorate for all you need are objects to inspire and motivate you.
