Warmer weather and longer days mean that summertime is officially here. While no one wants to be stuck at their cubicle on a beautiful summer day, there are ways to bring the summer-feel to your office. Consider these Summer office decorations and themes to help you cope with being stuck at your desk on a bright, sunny day.
General Design Tips
First, here are some general design tips to follow so that your decorations will be aesthetically pleasing and functional for the office:
• Colors and color schemes can be used to create the ideal office space. Although it may seem simple, colors can brighten up your corporate space. Your color scheme will depend on what type of office or medical practice you have, so choose a theme accordingly. Picking a color scheme should be one of the first things you do when decorating your office.
• Photos can help make your office feel more comfortable. Hang up photos of employees and encourage them to decorate their space with pictures of their family and friends.
• Choose decorations and art pieces wisely. These decorations and art pieces are a great opportunity to represent yourself and your attitudes, so choose them carefully. For example, neutral colors can convey a more conservative personality, while bright colors can suggest a creative personality. Whichever decorations you choose will set the tone for your office.
• Remember to keep things clean. Keep a handle on the clutter and trash around your office. Put away things that you do not use very often, and make sure to utilize storage space.
Summer office decorations will incorporate these tips, plus a few specific suggestions:
First, you want to think of a summery color scheme to decorate your office that will go along with your theme. Maybe you want to go for a beach look, so you will want to choose light blues, white, sand colors and even shades of yellow. Thinking of a color scheme first will help you tie together your decorations for a cohesive look.
Once you have your color scheme picked out, think about any fun decorations or art pieces to go with your theme. Party supply stores and discount retail stores, like T.J. Maxx, will have lots of different options.
For art pieces, make sure they are appropriate for your work-space and will help maintain a professional tone. Displaying art can be a great way to show your personality. You can even ask local artists if they would want to display their art in your office.
Plants can help your office feel more natural and homey, and certain ones can bring the summer vibes to your corporate space. They add a unique splash of color to your space and can even add a fresh fragrance. When choosing a plant, make sure that you will have enough space to store the plant, make sure the office has the right lighting and temperature, ensure that the color and size will go with other office decorations and don’t for get to water the plant.
For a summer feel, consider adding succulents and mini cacti. The benefit of these plants, besides looking unique and one-of-a-kind, is that they require way less maintenance than other plants. In other words, they are hard to kill if you lack a green thumb.
