5) Motivational Wall Art

Wall art can style up any room. Why not make it motivational in your office space? If you are ever lacking motivation in between work, rehearsing quotes and looking at prints with meaning may get you back on track and remind you how far you have come.  

Our favourite prints are from Desenio, here are a few we picked out that would work great in an office.

6) Keep Your Home Separate To Your Office

Success in a home office is achievable but you need to take into consideration distractions from the home that can affect your productivity. Procrastinating has never been so common, right? 

If you can, having a sperate workspace to your bedroom, and a place of relaxation, this can help you hand in hand; it helps you to concentrate more in the work environment and relax in your bedroom or other home spaces.

This can be achieved in many ways.

  • Keep work devices and personal devices separate
  • Decorate with a contrasting interior to the rest of the home
  • Keep your office door shut to keep distractions to a minim
  • Work near a window with natural light
