Designing Your Perfect Workspace

By Wizu | 27 November 2023

Your workspace is so much more than just a desk and a chair; it’s the space that needs to inspire you, it’s the space where ideas are found and the to-do list gets conquered.

There is an art to designing the perfect working space, and it all starts with you. From the science of dopamine dressing to the therapeutic benefits of plants and the importance of staying organised, let’s have a look at how a workspace that resonates with your unique work style can boost your happiness and your productivity!

The Power of Dopamine Dressing: Elevating Your Workspace Aesthetics

Dopamine dressing (also a term used heavily in fashion) – curating your workspace with colors and elements that bring you joy, can significantly impact your mood and productivity. If you’re giving your workspace a spruce, why not follow the Wizu way? Incorporate colours that resonate with your personality and work style. Whether it’s a vibrant wall, colorful stationery, or artwork that inspires, giving yourself that visual stimuli that evokes positivity and creativity can make a huge difference.

Harnessing the Green Power: Plants are our Friends! 

Plants aren’t just for aesthetics, they’re your silent coworkers contributing to a healthier and happier you! Research shows that indoor plants can improve air quality, reduce stress, and increase productivity. Introduce some greenery to your workspace – succulents, snake plants, or a leafy friend on your desk can work wonders for your mental health.

Making it a Zen Zone

Organisation is the backbone of a productive workspace. Investing in practical storage solutions alongside decluttering regularly can massively help to keep you on track, as well as keeping essentials within arm’s reach. A clutter-free space minimises distractions, allowing you to focus on the task in front of you. Consider using cable organisers and minimalistic shelving to stay organised and create a zen-like atmosphere.

Extend the Zen to Your Gadgets!

We’d be wrong to say that our phones, laptops, ipads, aren’t an extension of us and our working lives. Personalising your desktop or screensaver and organising your files in a way that works for you can hugely free up your mind during the day. A clutter-free digital space supports a streamlined workflow and a more enjoyable work experience.

Ergonomics for the Win

Lets talk about your posture. If you’re sat like a prawn right now – we’re looking at you! If you can, look at investing in an ergonomic chair, position your computer screen at eye level, and ensure proper lighting. An ergonomically designed workspace can help to reduce physical strain and contributes to a healthier and more comfortable work experience.

If your workspace is getting a bit bland and boring, and isn’t inspiring your workday, why not take this as a sign? Start dopamine dressing your surroundings, pop to the garden centre to buy a plant, or simply put up some colourful sticky notes. Craft a space that not only aligns with your unique work style but also inspires you to get the work done.

Wizu’s spaces are built on the idea of being a little bit different. Quirky. Colourful. A place you want to spend time. So if you’re not quite ready to commit to a whole space reno, but you need a space for right now to spur you on – why not get in touch? We might have just the space for you.
