If you are someone who is working in an office, you probably spend at least forty hours every week sitting in your own gray box. On top of that, you probably spend a lot of time in your own little world for a little distraction every now and then. Working in an office space may tend to become boring and lackluster some times especially since your office may not be as inspiring as you may have hoped…. Leading into one of the reasons why people do not like Monday. Luckily, there is no rule that says that you need to keep your office neutral or that you can’t shake things up a bit. You can actually decorate your office to make it feel more like your second home instead being your jail cell. If you decorate your space according to your personal style, you will feel more relaxed and you will find yourself actually enjoying what you’re doing. Here are the DIY backyard office ideas to make your work office feel like your second home.

1) Hang Curtains & Pictures

One of the cheapest ways to decorate your office at work is to hang curtains and pictures. When you hang curtains and pictures in your house, it starts to feel more welcoming and begins to give off a more comfortable aura. This same principle can be applied in your office. You can use your family pictures, or you can also print some art to display in your office. You can search for free pictures online that you can print. You can even create a gallery on your wall that will give you more inspiration instead of looking at a blank canvas

2) Purchase A Beautiful Pencil Cup

Another one of the cheapest ways to decorate your office at work is to purchase a beautiful pencil up. Most of us are so used to rambling through our drawers looking for pen or pencils when we desperately need them. To make your work experience more vivid and less cumbersome – round up all of your pens and pencils then put them in a small geo pencil cup that you can purchase online or any home improvement store.

3) Print Out A Gorgeous Calendar

Since the evolution of smartphones most people use their phones to keep track of their schedules, but this could become somewhat of a hassle to the get up and go person since you still need to search through your phone and scramble through apps just to check your calendar. Whereas if you have a dedicated calendar all you need to do is look up or shift your eyes over at its direction. All in all, there are many home and garden DIY tips on the internet. You can print out gorgeous calendar sets of any design you choose all for free.

4) Add A Green Space

What is a beautiful office if there is no green space – no living plant life or animal life?

To work around this, you can grab a small plant pot and place it near your desk or your file cabinet. If you think you will forget about the plant and its needs, such as water, then you can opt out for a plastic plant or make a beautiful DIY plant out of succulent paper. They look exactly like the real thing, but you do not need to worry about watering it and exposing it to sunlight.

5) Add A Lamp

If you think your office space doesn’t get enough light, then you can add a gorgeous lamp of your choice to bring in some additional light and life into the workspace. Instead of using a fluorescent light, try using a full spectrum bulb instead. These kind of bulbs help stimulate warmth and natural light. If you take a nap on your desk, then you can turn off the office light and turn on your desk lamp to relax you before you get yourself ready for another set of tasks to do.

6) Use Christmas Lights

This is probably one of the trendiest concept as of late. In contrast to using the traditional lamp, you can go for Christmas lights and hang them on your wall or around your work area to add a new aesthetic into your work life. There are Christmas lights that you can install yourself or for the more complex versions you can ask for help from your office’s utility personnel instead.

7) Tack Up Some Inspirational Notes

Doing the same thing every single day can be tiring and boring. There may be times that you do not want to do what you do anymore, and the tendency is that you may slack off, and that could damage the work that you are doing. One trick that people do is posting inspirational quotes around their work area or on their work board in order to boost their motivation and confidence. There are loads of free inspirational quotes that are available online and in different social media platforms that you can print out using your sticky notes or glossy bond paper.
