Office Decorating 101- Quick, Affordable Tips To Help You Decorate Your Office In StyleAuthor: Candace Perkins
In these economically challenging times, you're fortunate to have a job…so congratulations on having a job and an office! But are you truly taking advantage of the four glorious walls that you have? Office walls that are bare, dull, and drab give an office an unlived-in feel that can negatively affect your mood and energy level…and the mood and energy level of those who visit you! Spruce up your office before a colleague says "Wow, your walls could use a paint job" or "Hey, let me know if you need any help hanging stuff on those empty walls."
These phrases reflect the typical ideas for decorating an office like giving it a new paint job and hanging up items like dry erase boards, photos, or paintings. But these traditional methods have strings attached. A fresh coat of paint does wonders for a room, but you need painting equipment and manpower (or womanpower!) to get the job done. Plus, your employer might not have the budget to hire a professional painter and probably won't allow you to do the job yourself. Hanging photos and paintings will bring personality and charm to your office, but you'll need some basic tools to hang them and you run the risk of doing damage to your walls. Some employers won't even allow you to put holes in your office walls or hang items using tape. For these reasons, you might just resign yourself to keeping your walls bare. But don't give up yet, there is a creative and affordable solution – wall decals!
Wall decals are an excellent alternative to traditional decorating methods. They can be used on virtually any surface that is clean and smooth. In addition, they are quick and easy to use – no artistic or technical skill is required and you don't need any tools! Moreover, wall decals are easily removable and don't do damage to your walls or other surfaces. They don't even leave behind a sticky residue. And most importantly for some, most decals are in the price range of $10-30. Here are some great examples of wall decals for your office that are both decorative and functional:
Using wall decals in the office is a win-win solution for both you and your employer. You get an awesome office that shows off your personality and your agency gets the peace of mind in knowing that your decorations won't break the walls or the bank. And if you end up moving into another office or changing jobs completely, you can bring your personality with you – all you have to do is peel your wall decals off the wall and then stick them in your new space!
