While some of us will be settled back into the office, many of us will still be settled into our home offices, or perhaps even just our temporary set up at the kitchen table. For some, the working from home thing will have been a welcome change to their routine, having unlimited access to cups of tea without any judgement from the boss and spending plenty of extra time with our pets.
However, others will have been struggling to get the motivation going, whether it’s the constant distraction of having your phone to hand or your setup just not being that exciting. While we can’t exactly help you distractions wise, we can certainly help you make your home office space that little bit more pleasant. Sometimes, all it takes is a few personal touches to make your WFH setup a much happier place to be, and dare we say it – somewhere you’ll actually want to work in.
We have plenty of ways for you to inject some positivity in your home office space, including vibrant wall art, photo mugs, notebooks and loads more! Today we’ve put together some of our top picks, along with a few other ways that you can brighten up your workspace.
Wonderful Wall Art
One of the simplest ways to make your home office a happier place to be is by brightening up your walls, and what better way than to do it with some of your favourite photos? Our vast selection of wall art means there’s something for everyone, from vibrant poster prints to cool and modern metal prints, all giving you the option to create your very own photo wall. If your room has plenty of light, one of our gorgeous metal prints would be the perfect addition – the sleek metal finish allows for glorious high shine and vibrant colours, creating a truly stand out piece of art. And why stop at just one? Go for our multi panel metal prints and select up to 9 of your favourite images.
Classic canvas prints are also a popular option, whether you go fr our photo canvas display panels or create your very own collage canvas, you can add a trendy and modern piece of artwork to your office walls. Crafted with premium canvas fabric, you’ll enjoy vibrant and rich colours in every photo, and there’s even the option to upgrade to a gloss finish for some extra shine.
If your office has minimalistic decor and you don’t want to overload your walls, a photo poster can be a great way to inject some colour and personality without going over the top, creating just one simple focal piece. There’s a wide selection of sizes, and you can choose just one image or even select a handful of them to create a collage of all your favourite snaps – the possibilities are endless!
For those who regularly like to chop and change their wall art, our photo tiles can be the ideal option. The lightweight tiles come with their own adhesive sticky pads which won’t mark your walls, not only giving you the option to rearrange as much as you like, but also saving you the hassle of installing heavy frames. Plus, if you live in a rented property, there’s no risk of upsetting your landlord!
Remember how good it felt buying your new stationery before you went back to school? If you make use of pen and paper on a daily basis, bring back some of that feeling and invest in some shiny new stationery. Add a couple of pens with quirky or stylish designs to your collection rather than your bog-standard biros, or perhaps even upgrade your stationery storage with a cute pen pot or desk organiser.
It’s amazing how much a fancy new notebook can get you feeling motivated, so if you’re regularly jotting bits down, why not treat yourself to one of our personalised photo notebooks? Choose from one of our stylish pre-made designs or upload your favourite snaps and create your own – each one comes with 100 pages and a glossy hardback cover, so there’s plenty of room to store your notes in style.
While some of us have now turned to the calendars in our phones, there’s still something about having a traditional diary to keep our day organised, and making use of one can be a great way to keep track of your working from home routine and any tasks that need doing. Our personalised spiral diary comes with a simple week to view layout making it easy to manage your day, and you can upload your favourite images or use one of our templates – it’ll look so good, your phone calendar won’t get a look in!
Inject Some Colour
It’s not just adding some art to your walls that can brighten your home office! If you’re feeling creative and you’re a dab hand with a paint brush, why not give your room a bit of a makeover? Create a feature wall by painting with a vibrant colour or putting up some statement wallpaper, and you’ll be amazed at the difference!
If you don’t have the time to get decorating, you can still add a few pops of colour to your office with furniture, plants and even cushions. A couple of colourful scatter cushions are a great way to give your room a lift, or you can even go for some of our personalised cushion covers for a more unique touch.
Finally, don’t underestimate the addition of a few little finishing touches. It’s no secret that we Brits love a brew, so why not treat yourself to one of our fabulous photo mugs? Create a collage mug with a handful of your favourite images, or enjoy a more colorful cuppa with the help of our personalised colour mugs. Alternatively, you can go for one of our luxurious latte mugs for when you enjoy your next caffeine fix!
If your mug collection is already a bit full, there’s still plenty of options to add some finishing touches to your office. We especially love our photo ornaments, which not only make wonderful gifts for loved ones, but they’re also perfect for adding a personal touch to your workspace. Hand them on doorknobs, house plants or draw handles – the choice is yours!
While we can’t exactly remove the temptation to quickly check Facebook or to pop the TV on in the background, we hope we’ve given you some inspiration for how you can brighten up your working from home space – whether you have a dedicated office or you set up camp at the kitchen table each morning!
We have a wonderful selection of personalised gifts, photo prints and more, perfect for bringing a smile to your face every day, so be sure to take a look at our full collection of products for even more ideas!
