Desks at work can be a great place to bring a bit of your own personality into the workplace as well as make it a bit more enjoyable and fun. While some people go with a minimalist vibe, many others really use up a whole lot of their workspace with personal effects, photos and other various things that bring them joy during the daily grind. We always love a good desk full of great personal items, such as the following:
Photos of family and friends can be a great addition to any desk. Not only does it make the space personal but it also helps relieve stress and anxiety when looking at photos of loved ones. You can also add holiday snaps to your desk to remind yourself of stress-free moments or to encourage you to work through that particularly difficult time with the promise of sandy beaches and colourful sunsets soon to come.
Drawings Or Art
If you have children, adding a drawing they did to your desk space can be a great idea to help bring some colour and love to your area. Artwork friends have done is a great suggestion as well and can not only jazz up the desk but can help a friend get noticed by others, potentially leading to helping them sell their art. Furniture At Work has a whole variety of filing cabinets you can include in your work area – the ideal place to hang all kinds of artwork from different people.
Plants are a great addition to any desk space as they bring colour and brightness to the area which helps make it more enjoyable. It also produces oxygen and helps circulate oxygen more easily. More oxygen can help reduce fatigue and increase focus, something everyone benefits from. Not only that, but plants look great and can make an office take on a healthy vibe which helps with office morale and concentration.
Under the fun stuff umbrella in #MyDeskStory includes things like little Lego men that you and a friend might have gotten when you went shopping once, painted rocks someone gave you with inspirational wording on them, or any other kind of various toy, decoration, gift etc that doesn’t fit under any other name. Fun stuff is a great addition to any desk and can help really personalise your area, along with helping reduce stress and irritation during the day.
No desk is complete without a comfy, stylish chair, especially if you’re going to be at your desk for hours. Places like Furniture At Work have office chairs in a variety of styles and sizes.
