Office spaces usually fit one of two definitions – busy and messy or clean and calm. Can you venture a guess as to which setting accomplishes more? A clean, calm office desk triumphs chaos, producing a level of focus that get people going.
When you turn on your office desktop lamp, what do you see? If all that’s there is clutter, something needs to change. Even when life is busy, your desk shouldn’t be. Leave only the necessities behind and remove what you don’t need to stay focused on the things you need to get done.
In achieving a tidy desk area, a lot of office workers and managers will chase minimalism. The argument for minimalism in a home office or corporate office not only has to do with cleanliness but it also carries with it less distraction. All a worker has is what’s in front of them and in that, concentration and commitment come forth.
There’s a lot that one can do to emphasize a minimalist office and to personalize it. Adding some photos is a common approach. A gallery style hanging picture frame works well at bringing photographs or reminders of family, friends, and what you’re working for.
Another way to add some life is through a small artificial office succulent plant. These are small enough to decorate any desk or shelf, regardless of size. The fact that it’s a faux succulent also means no maintenance is required so you get the aesthetic without having to make a commitment to water it, tend to it, etc.
In creating a minimalism atmosphere on your desk and in the office around you, we’d say organization isn’t difficult to achieve. It’s about figuring out the best way to store items. When there’s a place for paperwork, some little knick knacks, and whatever else your desk may be carrying, things suddenly start looking a little less disorganized. An acrylic cosmetic jewelry organizer can double as an office desk storage piece in this way.
Lastly, having an alarm clock on a stand to hold on your table to keep you focused can be a healthy way to keep yourself on track. These sort of office accountability accessories are increasingly popular among entrepreneurs and people working from home who really need to buckle down. There’s always room on a desk for a timer like this and even better, it comes in minimalist white so it won’t stand out no matter what other décor or pieces you may have around.
