A bright, clutter-free workplace has benefits for employees and clients alike. Amongst the stresses of your day it's easy to let the paperwork, files and folders invade your desk without giving them a second thought. Remember that old saying: a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind. It's not just your desk; it's your whole workspace that influences your team's productivity and happiness. Remember that your office is also the first impression for your clients. You can show them that you're professional, arty or highly qualified just through your furnishings. Unfortunately you can also show that you're unprofessional and disorganised if your business operates in messy surroundings.
There are many benefits to clearing out the clutter, rearranging the furniture and painting the walls of your office. First of all, a fresh paint job can brighten up the office and make it feel new. Use neutral colours to keep the office light, and keep people calm. If you work in a creative environment then bright colours can inspire staff. If your office is naturally dark, use light coloured paint to brighten it up, and be strategic with mirrors. Rearrange furniture: Place desks near windows to make use of natural light, put teams together, and generally make sure your office space is used in the best way possible.
The Christmas break is a great time for an office switch-around, especially if your business shuts over the festive period.
