An unattractive workspace is not something that inspires productivity before starting a task. A desk, either bare or cluttered, is not aesthetically pleasing and will not encourage you to occupy it; especially on a Monday morning. When you organise your workspace, make sure it is neat, tidy and inviting. The key to a dream desk is to find the right balance between a tumbleweed-inducing emptiness and an overcrowded pandemonium. So, here’s some tips on how to create an attractive looking workspace:
Establish Workspace Zones
Work out where your coffee or water bottle will go, and designate a ‘drink spot’. Leave an A4 paper sized section on your workspace for when you need to write things down on paper. By giving your items designated sections, you won’t struggle to find space for your day-to-day desk occupancies. This will save you time and stress. If the office coffee doesn’t quite tickle your taste buds, or you just prefer the taste of your own home beverages, a stylish flask is just what you need. Our thermos flasks come in a tasteful variation of coloured leathers and patterns and will definitely add a touch of style to your coffee break.
Separate Work and Home
Avoid extreme amounts of personal belongings in your workspace. A clear mind-set can often be sought by separating work life from home life. Apply this rule to your workspace. Instead of numerous photographs of your dog to distract your concentration, perhaps replace them with a desk-top plant. Another idea is something to help stimulate the mind; mind puzzles quite commonly occur on desks.
Organise your paperwork. It is time consuming having to search around your desk for a specific document, to avoid flustering minutes, file and store work correctly. A paper tray is an efficient way to store your unused paper and ensures your documents will be printed onto a professional, preserved sheet. The range of styles we offer here at Luxury Leather Gifts will case your paper in a tasteful leather tray, they are perfect for sprucing up your workspace.
Keep a small bin in close proximity to your workspace. Desks quickly become cluttered with lingering paper and other rubbish, which is ready to be disposed of. Keep on top of the rubbish, dispose of it straightaway and try to minimise anything on your desk which you no longer need. This keeps your workspace in ship-shape condition. A tidy desk leaves room for creativity!
Keep your stationary collection to a small but efficient minimum. Stationary can take up a lot of desk space, so only purchase items you use on a day-to-day basis. Keeping it to a minimum also means you can indulge in the office essentials a little more; matching stationary is certainly worthy of a spot on the desk. Our leather stationary organisers can be purchased in Black, Chestnut, or Brown Nile Croc finish, and provide luxury organisation for stationary on your workspace.
