Celebrating Simplicity Day: How it Inspires a Modern and Minimalist Office Space
In today's fast-paced and complex world, it's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. We at The Office Crowd love a well-organised and simply elegant workspace. We wanted to put a blog together to share some of what we take into consideration when designing for our clients.
With this in mind, let's take a moment to reflect on how we can create a simpler, more streamlined office space that inspires productivity and promotes a sense of calm. Here are a few ideas for how to bring a touch of simplicity to your home or work office.
Feng Shui for Office Spaces:
Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement and has been used to create harmonious spaces for centuries. When it comes to your office, incorporating Feng Shui principles can help to create a more balanced, harmonious, and inviting space.
One simple idea is to declutter your desk and create clear spaces for work and productivity. Another tip is to add living plants to your space to promote healthier air quality and positive energy flow. Lastly, consider using warm lighting or natural light to create a sense of calm and relaxation in your workspace.
Organising Tips from Marie Kondo:
Marie Kondo is a bestselling author and organising consultant who has helped millions of people to simplify their homes and workspaces. Her philosophy is to only keep items that spark joy and to let go of everything else.
When it comes to organising your office space, her advice is to start by decluttering and organising your desk, shelves, and drawers. She recommends using storage solutions that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Lastly, make sure to keep your space tidy and clear of any unnecessary items to create a stress-free and focused work environment. I know I am guilty of keeping papers or notes on my desk that I haven't looked at for a month or more! May we kindly suggest checking out some of our storage solutions, and a big bonus, they are refurbished so you can tidy up at a fraction of the cost of buying new.
