Nothing says boring like a standard grey cubicle. There’s no personality, no pizzazz, and nothing that makes it unique. You might not even be sure if anyone works in a dry, boring cubicle. Fortunately, you can customize your cubicle to bring in some personality to your home away from home.
Today, we’re going to take a look at five of the best ways to customize your cubicle that will showcase your personality and make it a more enjoyable place to work.
Add a Desk Lamp
One of the unfortunate facts about office life is that it typically pulls you away from windows and sunlight. This can have detrimental effects on your mood. You can help to minimize these effects by adding a simple lamp to your desk. You don’t need to buy a fancy lamp made of salt — any type of lamp with soothing lights will do well for you.
Display Weekly Flowers
Nothing has a more dramatic effect on the mood in your cubicle than fresh plants. While they won’t last forever, you should make it a habit to regularly pick up fresh flowers and plants. You can even grab a fresh bouquet on your way into work every Monday, so you’ll always have something nice, bright, and filled with life.
Pick a Color Theme
Color themes are popular for cars, clothes, and websites; why not with cubicles, too? Pick a color theme with a palette of three or four different colors. Once picked, buy a number of things in the chosen color scheme and decorate your cubicle. You might be surprised at how much a themed cubicle can impact your mood.
Use Photos of Loved Ones
Raid your loved ones’ social media accounts and download any pictures that you like. With their permission, have those pictures printed and framed. Bring them into your cubicle and you’ll see their smiling faces staring back at you all week long. There are some services that will even print from social media and send you the framed pictures, too.
Use a Personalized Calendar
Every cubicle needs a calendar, so you may as well bring in something that adds life to your cubicle. A personalized calendar might contain a picture of your dog each month or it might just be focused on your favorite sports team. Either way, simple decoration can be hung from your cubicle walls to add a sense of personality.
Make Your Cubicle Unique
A cubicle with personality is much more fun to work in than a boring, drab cubicle. Consider enacting the above techniques to decorate your cubicle and enrich your desk experience.
