If your job is nine to five job then you pretty much spend almost the entire day in your office throughout the week. The amount of time you spend in your office is an obvious indication to how comfortable you need to be in it. So, how does one make their office space comfortable enough that they are not feeling too tired after spending almost an entire day in it. Well, if you own the company then making the space super comfortable and suiting your needs is so easy, however, if you’re just an employees this might not be the case.

As an employee, there really is only a limited number of things that you can change; I mean, for instance imagine wanting a whole new desk, chair and computer. This happening can be ruled as slightly unlikely unless you play a very significant role in the company. Being realistic would be the first step in creating a comfortable space that you will be happy with. Knowing that the minor changes you make can actually have a bigger impact than you think is a good place to start. So let’s look at some realistic changes you can make to your office space to make it comfortable.

Change Up Your Lighting!

The lighting in a room is so important; all day you’re going to be staring at a computer screen that emits blue light. This is quite straining for the eyes and honestly not the best thing for you. There really isn’t much you can do about this unless you’re willing to invest in some blue light glasses that filter the blue light and prevents your eyes from straining. It’s a good idea to fill your environment with more natural light, get some blinds hawthorn installed so you can control how much light gets in.

On super sunny hot days, you can have the blinds closed or partially closed depending on your preference, other days you can have them wide open. The idea is to make up for all the blue light that you’re staring at by surrounding yourself with natural light.

Natural light also takes away feelings to tiredness and makes you feel a bit more alert and not sleepy. So making sure that you get plenty of that is a good idea, especially if you can’t get up every now and then to go for a walk.

Being A Few Personal Items In

Another way to make your office space comfortable is to bring in a few personal items. These could be anything from a picture frame with one of your favourite pictures or a few of your favourite ornaments. It’s also an excellent idea to have a plant; a little greenery always makes everything so much better. Make sure to get a plant whether real or fake and have it.

Keep in mind though that this is still a professional environment and you shouldn’t overdo it in personalizing the space. You must make subtle changes that will still maintain the integrity of the work place; you mustn’t try to turn it into your home because after all this is a place of work and the only thing that we are striving for is comfort for the few hours that you stay in the office.
