When COVID-19 turned our world upside down, we were all thrown into a new world of working from home. Some of us already had home offices and made a smooth transition to remote working while others had to improvise and rethink the use of home spaces. As the world returns to normal, some of us are returning to the office and others are still adapting to the new hybrid normal. Office space is now a must-have in a home. There are many creative ways to create an office as well as improve a pre-existing one.
- It is important to create a dedicated space for work. If it cannot be a room, dedicate a part of a room to work. Add a desk to a room to create a specific workspace rather than using a dining room or kitchen table. A nook or vestibule space can be repurposed into a perfect place for a small office.
- Paint colors shape the vibe of your workspace. Particular colors reinforce and inspire focus, concentration, and energy. Color psychology studies the effect of colors on human behavior. It shows us that there are three main colors that improve concentration and productivity: blue, orange, and green. Consider painting your office one of these colors or decorating with one of these colors.

- Adding plants to your workspace can help improve performance and reduce stress. Having plants in office spaces is shown to reduce stress by 30-60% and improve creativity. Plants also improve the air quality in your office. Consider succulents and other small plants such as Peace Lilies or Aloe Vera as great starters! https://www.theplantman.com.au/benefits-of-plants-within-your-office/
