5 Office Decor Tips To Brighten Your Work Space

Written By On 24 April 2018

If you work full time, you’re likely spending over 40 hours a week at your desk, so why not make it an inviting and productive space. According to recent studies, art can reduce stress and improve productivity in the workplace. So here are 5 creative office decor tips to help brighten your work station:

1. Inspirational Quotes

As cheesy as some of these can often be, inspirational quotes have been proven to improve productivity and synergy amongst teammates. Choosing a quote which resonates with you, may help provide you with the motivation you need to get through the day. Our Faceblocks are perfect for this, just simply upload a quotation which resonates with you and have it delivered to your office and ready to mount at your desk.

2. Print/Purchase A Calendar

Calendars are not only extremely convenient in helping you plan your monthly schedules, but they also give your office cubicle a sense of productivity. Often with digital calendars, we tend to focus on our day-to day and weekly work plans that we forget to stop and take a look at significant dates for the coming month. Purchase a large calendar in your favourite colour and highlight important days of the month to remind yourself of significant events in your life, such as birthdays and anniversaries.

3. Create A Mini Gallery Wall

Our Tiny Tots work seamlessly for work space cubicles as they are small 7cm squares, allowing you to create a mini gallery wall of your favourite memories with this office decor tip. Select ten of your favourite family photos, pet photos or images from your latest vacation and stick your Tiny Tots around your office cubicle or monitor using pres-stick. This will help give your work space a reflection of your personality and help you feel more relaxed as you look at your favourite memories throughout your work day.

4. Can’t Have A Plant? Print One.

Many office environments do not allow employees to keep plants on their desks due to the lack of natural light and other cons that an office environment may pose. However, plants have been known to add more than just a decorative touch. Psychologists have found that bringing greenery and flora into the workplace can improve employee satisfaction and increase productivity by up to 15 percent. Choose a picture of a lush, green plant and have it printed and mounted next to your desk to mimic the feeling of nature around your work space.

5. Make Use Of Abstract Art

Abstract art can help stimulate discussion and creativity in the workplace. Battling to find creative ideas for an upcoming work project? Your abstract wall art may be able to help soothe you into a creative frame of mind. Pick a colourful and entrancing abstract piece and hang it near your desk. Our A4 canvas prints would be the most suitable for this.


Decorating your workspace can have a positive effect on productivity as well as on your psychological state during the workday. Improve your mood at work by brightening up your workstation with these helpful office decor tips.

Thank you Printwild for helping me keep and display my memories. Printwild have such a user friendly website and the ordering process was so easy, simply upload your images.I was kept in the loop throughout the entire ordering process so knew when my photos were edited, being printed and ready. The customer service is amazing and the staff are super helpful. All my photos were sent for met to proof before they were printed and i was able to keep some text on one of my images as well. The courier was quick and i was given tracking details to follow my order. The photos arrived and WOW! The magnatots look like glass tiles and the quality of print on both the magnets and photoblocks is crystal clear. i was able to unpack and hang my photoblocks, which i'm now addicted to, straight away. Such wonderful ways of displaying lots of photos in a small space. i love it! Can't wait to put in my next order

As a pro photographer having shot around 500 weddings, it’s extremely important that our brides are happy with their Canvas photos. Every bride as well as other clients have praised the quality of all the products supplied by Printwild 💕 Besides the great products and excellent services, the staff from the top and across all the spectrums, are an absolute delight to deal with and make one feel special. Having dealt with Printwild for over a decade I highly recommend them.
