Arrange your office
Add a lamp
It’s no surprise that lamps reign pretty supreme in the electrical-light ambiance factor. Just because your cubicle probably resides under the fluorescents doesn’t mean you have to, too. Even when the office overhead lights are on, you can turn on your cubicle lamp and feel an immediate change with its warmer lumens.
Designate a shelf for décor.
If you have the space, it doesn’t hurt to forgo the massive binders and reference books for a softer, more aesthetic shelf resident. Wicker, paper, or crocheted balls, for example, add a refreshing curve appeal to a space that’s very angular by nature.
Paint an unexpected object.
If you’ve got a few reference books that must be out on your desk at all times, it never hurts to create a charming frame for those books, right? Pick out some largish rocks and spray paint them gold for some wonderfully unique, colorful, and dare I say chic bookends? The easiest DIY ever, it’ll have a huge impact on your cubicle décor.
Bring in fresh flowers.
While they won’t last forever, fresh blooms add instant beautification to a drab office cubicle. Make it a habit to change them out every week, like grab a fresh bunch every Monday on your way to the office. They not only look fresh and pretty, but they smell great and are a definite mood-lifter.
Throw in a throw pillow.
Your sofa isn’t the only place that could use a throw pillow. Especially around 3 pm, when you’ve been sitting at your desk all day, a little extra back support or adjustment is never a bad thing! Plus, a throw pillow allows you to introduce some fun prints and patterns into an otherwise function-loaded space.
Choose a color scheme…and go nuts.
Your cubicle bones are likely the neutral-est of the neutrals, which is as boring as can be if left alone but as perfect as can be if you want to incorporate your own décor color scheme into your cubicle. Which, of course, you do. Yellow, white, and grey add a cohesive, personality-filled vibe to this otherwise totally cookie cutter cubicle
Using a small wooden box turned on its side, attach some brass hooks. Paint watercolor ombre on some cardstock tags, and use vinyl letters and numbers for the date. Not only will you keep on top of your appointments, but you’ll do so in a beautiful way.
Incorporate colorful accessories
To keep your enthusiasm and energy levels up throughout the day, a boldly colorful accessory or two might be just the boost you need. Take this cobalt blue pen holder, for example. It’s a simple, modern piece that takes up very little desk space but provides a jolt of décor appeal…especially when paired with a red task lamp and natural bamboo stalks.
Pegboard organization isn’t just for garage tools – it makes a fantastic cubicle decoration as well. And it’s as attractive as can be! As cubicles aren’t typically large-real-estate workspaces, anything that can double as décor AND a great use of vertical space is something to consider
