Workspace Makeover: Ideas for Personalizing your Office Space

Posted on June 13, 2016

If you're starting a new job, or in my case, an internship, a new work space can be uninviting; however, with the help of Design Ideas' products, you can take your cubicle, desk, or entire office from boring and bland to bright and welcoming.

On the first day of my internship with Design Ideas, I was shown what would be my new home for the next 8 weeks: a stereotypical office cubicle that was bland, boring and in serious need of a makeover.

Before:

In order to make the space MY desk, I needed to not only personalize, but also better organize the area.

I wanted a simple design free of clutter that was sleek, yet inviting; personal, yet professional.

Mixing silver and gold metals provides a classy, yet relaxed vibe, while the pop of mint, along with my own personal pictures and clippings, add a fun touch to the simplicity of the area.

My made-over cubicle is a wonderful welcome every morning when I arrive to work. With a little creativity and time, I can guarantee not only will you receive several compliments, but you will also love your new space!!!
