1 ) Add Water to your office
Adding water to your office space is a very quick office design idea, and is one that will work with any budget (if you are looking for cheap decorating ideas). A small fountain or fish tank will do the job for very little out of pocket cost, while a large custom built saltwater tank can be built almost anywhere for those with larger budgets.
2 ) Add a mirror
Adding a mirror or two can really open up what might otherwise be a closed office space. It does not even have to be a large mirror. Additionally, with all the shapes, sizes and frames to choose from, you can find the perfect fit for your office design.
3) Organize your existing art in odd numbered groupings
You don’t even need to purchase new art, just by moving around what is already on your walls can create an entirely new feel. Group your art in odd numbered groupings; groups of one, three or five, and it will be more pleasing to the eye.
4) Add an area rug
Another idea that will fit with any budget, add an area rug to your office design. You can find rugs in all sizes, shapes and colors, and it may surprise you how much a well-placed rug can impact your overall office interior.
5) Scrap your current organizational items
Any office store will have a wide variety of organizational items from baskets, file holders, penholders etc. to choose from. Choose a style that fits for you, and then upgrade. It is not expensive to purchase new organizational items, but the difference it can make is often tremendous. An added bonus to this office design idea is that it will also force you to get more organized as you transition to the new items. Often times, this gives your productivity a boost.
6) Add some greenery
Simply adding a plant or two to your office will give your space a more inviting feeling. Be sure to choose a plant that will thrive in the light your particular office gets. If you have no natural light, an artificial plant can accomplish the same goal.
7) Purchase a new piece of art
Oil paintings are great for the office, you can find a painting of almost any subject you desire, and a nice piece of art can really add some character to a room. If you work in a modern high-rise type of office with a lot of glass, look into a piece of contemporary art. The clean lines of the contemporary style really fit well in the modern office buildings.
8) Change the frames on your existing art
Simply changing the frames on your existing art can also do wonders and add some flair to your office decor.
9) Arrange your furniture in a circular manner
If you have a waiting room or area where clients sit, try arranging the furniture in that room in a circular manner. This will give a warm feeling to the room and encourage positive energy for your waiting clients.
10) Add a drink dispenser
This can be both functional and decorative. Soda, coffee, tea, water, people like to sip on something, and having a drink dispenser handy will benefit you with positive energy from your visitors and clients. In addition, there are many unique and decorative dispensers on the market that can make a decorative statement for your particular office. Just because an item is functional does not mean it cannot also be decorative!
