Make Your Workspace Look Unique

Now more than ever, people are looking to upgrade their office spaces with new and inspiring desk decor ideas. Many people who have spent time in drab Cubicle Land are now working remotely, and workplaces are recognizing that the sparse industrial look isn’t great for the mental health of those who still have to report to a physical space. And no, that stack of old mugs piled next to your computer doesn’t count as decor. Here we list down some amazing decor ideas that will make your desk feel fresh and fun so work doesn’t feel like as much of a chore.

Add a plant to your desk

Plants boost your mood and reduce anxiety. Bring calm and happiness to your day by putting a lush, green plant on your desk. Many plants, such as English ivy and snake plants, can thrive with low, indirect light, such as a small window across the room.

Display fresh flowers

Who doesn’t feel happier while looking at flowers? Whether you put them in a vase or an old Mason jar, flowers bring liveliness to your space. They add a pop of color and, if you buy the right ones, also create a lovely smell.

Display an inspirational quote in a framed print

Even when you love your job, work can become tiresome, frustrating, and difficult at times. Display an inspirational quote in a framed print to keep yourself going through low points. Short, meaningful quotes take only a second to read but can provide major motivation.

Personalize your mouse pad

There’s no rule saying you have to use a black mousepad. Make your space fit your personality by upgrading this oft-ignored piece of desk decor. Mousepads come in every color of the rainbow. You can also find mousepads made of materials you wouldn’t expect, such as leather, cork, and even agate.

Light up the space

The addition of a light allows you to turn off ugly overhead fluorescents, or simply enjoy a brighter space. With so many shapes, sizes, and colors, it’s easy to find a lamp that perfectly fits your style. If you’re feeling unconventional, consider trying other types of lights. For example, colorful lightbulbs or a string of fairy lights give off a more whimsical vibe.
