4 Ways to Spice Up Your Cubicle Design
As people head back to the office after spending the past year working from home, previously deserted office spaces might seem a little…empty. Your employees spend 40 hours a week at their desks, so why not turn their cubicles into something that feels more like home?
Here are four tips to help your cubicles to spark joy.
1. Add a Touch of Class with Wood Trim
Gone are the days of gray, bare cubicle walls. With options for glass and wood trim, you can elevate the look of your workspaces. As an added benefit, these handsome partitions can help you to leverage the natural light provided by your exterior walls, spreading the sun throughout your work areas.
2. Add Some Office-Friendly Plants or Fresh Flowers
Not only do plants and fresh flowers look great and add a pop of color to your cubicles, but they are also proven to help increase focus and productivity.
Some other benefits of keeping plants at your desk include:
- They are stress reducers
- They purify the air
- They can reduce noise levels
- They’re creativity boosters
Breathe some life into your workspaces and make your shelves and storage spaces pop with decorative potted plants that match your color scheme.
3. Create a Backdrop
While most cubicle panels are available in a neutral gray, employees can easily use patterned fabric to create accent panels in various colors and styles. This will spice up the gray walls. Pick a color scheme and go crazy!
Pro Tip: If you use fabric to decorate the walls of your cubicles, add a matching throw pillow for your desk chairs using the same fabric. Now, you have a space that is cozy and comfortable, while still having a designer look.
4. Hang Photos and Art
Allow your employees to add some personal touches to their space. They might want to hang photos of loved ones, a picture of their pet, or personalized art. They can also hang professional certifications and awards. These little reminders of life outside of work can spark glimmers of joy and make employees smile throughout the work day.
To highlight the workspace and make it even more functional, add task lights that can illuminate personal touches, while shining a soft glow over the projects that your employees are working on.
