1. Keep it fresh + open!  4be2e74b516d7e3bb4153e3a66d92fbf

Keeping your workspace filled with natural light and bright colors will help give you that extra motivation to get to the office every day. Natural light will leave you feeling more awake and focused as opposed to a dark and unnatural lit setting. 

2. Use those nooks!

Even if you don’t have an extra room to convert into an office, try making use of those small spaces and get organized. Convert an under the stairway area to a great 33f949a69f7df731ee724ecc92db3d17place to work and organize your books, papers, etc. for an out of the way office space.

3. Decorate the walls

Making your office feel creative can help inspire those juices to flow every day. Decorating your office will give that space your unique touch and make your workspace more comfortable on even your most stressful days.

Why not give yourself a present this year?

What holiday projects are you planning this year?

It’s that time of year where things may become hectic with the holidays rolling around the corner, but with all this time off from work – why not take advantage of the time and finally redo that basement or extra room!

As Better Homes and Gardens writes in their “Holiday Home Projects” article:

  • Basement Finishing

    Whether your region brings ice and snow or clouds and rain during winter, chances are your outdoor living space will spend a good portion of the season out of commission. If your time indoors leaves you feeling a little crowded, look to your basement for room to roam. Finishing a basement offers a great way to extend your living space and also gives a higher return on investment than many other home projects. Whether you’re planning on selling your home come spring or you just need more space to live, consider finishing your basement.
