Adding plants into your office is one of the easiest ways to add vibrancy and character to your space.

Ditch Your Whiteboard
An office classic, the whiteboard is a staple when it comes to brainstorming at work, but why not upgrade? Installing an industrial paper roll on your office wall is an easy way to brain storm with colleagues, present on the fly, and pull more paper as you need it. This industrial upgrade gives your ideas room to grow while adding a little bit of personality to your office.
Optimize Your Space
If your space is limited, think upwards. Take advantage of your wall space by adding shelves, hanging file folders, photos, calendars, and mood boards above your desk. This approach to organization gets the most out of your space while creating a command center out of your desk space.
Offices get a bad rap for being bland and sterile. The best solution to this is to not shy away from color and artwork in your office. Find a statement piece of art or furniture that sets a tone for your space and works to bring inspiration to your work day.
With most of us spending 40 hours a week at our desk or in our office, there should be no settling when it comes to office décor. So ditch the bland and let your office space be your next source of inspiration.
