How To Put The Finishing Touches On Your Office Space

When it comes to office design, the difference is in the details! The accents you choose during the final stages of your remodel will help pull your space together. Today on The Office Anything Blog we'll highlight cool ways to put the finishing touches on your project. From popular paint finishes to unique lighting fixtures, we've got you covered.

1.) Paint


Paint Swatches for The Office

If you have the ability to paint your office space before you furniture is installed, do it. You'll greatly reduce the risk of unwanted spills around your new desk configuration. That being said, if your furniture has been installed, slide it away from the way and cover it with a drop cloth for protection.

Painting your office is a quick and easy way to add appeal. This year, popular color options like bright green, light blue, and various yellows have been the preferred choice design teams and industry professionals.

Pro Tip: Before committing to a paint color, pick up a few samples and compare them with your furniture finishes. Do just assume a particular color will look good with out checking it out first.

2.) Ergonomic Accessories


Popular Sit To Stand Desktop Attachment

There's 3 main ergonomic accessories you'll want to incorporate into your project. The first is a height adjustable desktop attachment that'll allow you to switch from sitting to standing operating positions in a flash. Brands like OFM and Systematix offer some of the best options on the market for professional applications. Their desktop risers promote continuous movement in the workplace and improve blood flow.

In addition to a desktop riser, you'll want to consider integrating a dual screen monitor arm. Single screen systems are rapidly becoming a thing of the past. If you ready to keep up with the modern business world, invest in an articulating arm that holds 2 screens to cut down on the time spent clicking between tabs. Most importantly, you'll be able to raise your monitors to eye level where they belong to reduce visual strain and neck pain.

Last but not least, add the finishing touch to your project with an ergonomic keyboard tray that retracts under the desk surface to provide you with a ton of extra work area. A retractable keyboard tray will also help you compute at healthy angles that reduce the risk of office epidemics like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

3.) Wall Art


Cool Wall Art for The Office

There's something to be said for cool wall art in the office. It helps create a professional and high class vibe that your visitors will love. If you want to earn your space the the compliments it deserves, consider putting the finishing touches on your project with cool sconces and framed art.

Select pieces that will be conversation starters that showcase your personality! Going to an art gallery is a great if you've got a big budget, but for those looking to save a few bucks, there's nothing wrong with traditional home stores.

Design Tip: In addition to traditional framed pictures and sconces, you can put a personal touch on your space with family pictures and awards you've received for your hard work. They will make your space feel warm and inviting.

4.) Plant Life


Succulents In The Office

The days of using old faux plants to accent your office interiors are rapidly fading. You'll be much better served by investing in low maintenance succulents and indoor plants that don't require a lot of water or natural light to survive. The best part is, you can select cool pots and containers to further boost your office appeal.

5.) Lighting Fixtures


Cool Desk Lamp

Last but not least, put the finishing touches on your project with a cool lighting fixture or two. If you're stuck dealing with flush mount ceiling lights, have no fear. You can use a unique desk lamp, or standing corner lamp to accent your space.

Looking for something unique? Take a visit to your local farmers market, swap meet, or antique store to search for cool fixtures. You'll no doubt find one of a kind pieces that make your interior stand out from the competition.

How To Fight Fatigue, Back Pain, and Other Office Ailments Effectively

To be at your best in the workplace, you've got to be ready to conquer common office ailments like fatigue, back pain, and even boredom to maintain high productivity levels. That's where we come in. Today on the Office Anything Blog we'll highlight the tips, advice, and product suggestions needed to do just that. Enjoy.!

1.) Fatigue

How To Fight Workplace FatigueConquering fatigue starts with a good nights rest. If you stay up too late watching movies and TV shows, you'll likely arrive at work feeling groggy and drained. Save that stuff for the weekend! If you commit to getting a solid 8 hours of rest during the week, you'll wake up refreshed and with the energy needed to tackle the days tasks.

Before you head out for work, it's important to eat a healthy breakfast. Skip the pancakes and bacon and go with a energy packed fruit bowl and a cup of yogurt. Coffee is okay, but don't over do it. Multiple morning cups of java will certainly wake you up, but when the caffeine wears off fatigue will be ready to strike.

Fatigue can also be battled effectively with good work habits. Avoid sitting for long periods of time without taking a break. When you sit for hours on end in your office chair, blood flow is restricted and muscles start to tighten up. Fatigue is sure to follow. Set a timer to alert you once an hour that it's time to stand up, stretch, and hydrate. Fatigue won't stand a chance.

2.) Back Pain

How To Fight Back Pain At Work
It's no secret that back pain is a productivity killer. That being said, it can be effectively tackled with good posture habits. First and foremost, you'll want to keep your back in contact with your office chair at all times to ensure you're properly supported. Each time you lean and hunch away from your chair to type, your vertebrae is paying the price. If you've invested in a fancy ergonomic chair with good lumbar support, get the most out of it by keeping your back in contact with it as much as possible.

You'll also want to keep your feet placed flat on the ground and facing forward. Using the base of your chair as a foot rest is a big time no-no. This "perching" technique restricts blood flow that leads to fatigue. When fatigue hits, even the best posture habits can break down. This domino affect can then lead to unnecessary back pain.

There's something to be said for selecting the right office chair for your personal needs. If your current chair just isn't cutting it, there are cost effective options on the market to help you fight back pain. Here's 5 of our favorite office task chairs that provide back pain relief available for under $350.00...

  1. Eon by Cherryman Industries
  2. Stratus by OFM, Inc.
  3. Creedence by Woodstock Marketing
  4. Rave by SitWell
  5. Astra by Eurotech Seating

3.) Boredom

How To Fight Office BoredomFighting boredom is easier said than done. When this office ailment strikes, it's definitely hard to regain and maintain focus throughout the day. That being said, boredom is typically a result of inactivity.

If your day is running slow and you don't have a lot of tasks on your plate, consider giving your office space a good cleaning. Go through your personal file cabinet drawers and purge out any unnecessary documents. Clean of your desk and organize your stationary. Vacuum the floors and dust your furniture. Staying active during down times is key!

You can also collaborate with your coworkers. Just because you're not busy, doesn't mean they're not. Lending a helping hand will keep you busy. Hopefully when the tables turn and you're day is full of time sensitive tasks, they'll pay back the favor. This boredom fighting technique is also good for morale.

4.) Visual Strain

How To Fight Visual Strain At Work
It may sound a bit minor, but visual strain is most certainly an office ailment worth discussing. As you stare at your computer screens for hours on end, your eyes pay the price. It's important to stand up, walk away from your desk, and allow your eyes to adjust. The artificial light put off from your computer screens isn't healthy.

You can also fight visual strain effectively by raising your computer screens up to eye level. A simple stack of books or a shoebox will act as an interim solution until you're ready to invest in a professional mount for computer screens that adjusts. With an articulating monitor arm you'll also be able to avoid looking down at your screens when typing. Trust us, your neck will thank you!

5.) Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

How To Fight Carpal Tunnel Syndrome At Work
Last but not least, you need to compute at healthy angles to combat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This epidemic affects 5% of today's workforce.

If you're still computing with your keyboard atop your desk surface, it's time to make a switch. Adjustable ergonomic keyboard trays that retract under the desk surface are available from brands like Systematix, Symmetry Office, and ESI Ergonomic Solutions that increase usable operating space while simultaneously providing you with the adjustment capabilities needed to fight CPS throughout your busy work days. Keyboard trays are really the industry standard. Don't fall behind the times. Take action against CPS and type at healthy angles.
Sit To Stand Desktop Attachment
Do you really want to take your workspace to the next level? Consider investing in a height adjustable desktop attachment that promotes sit to stand operating. Most of today's adjustable risers feature articulating keyboard platforms that will help you fight multiple office ailments simultaneously.

Sit to stand risers encourage continuous movement in the workplace while improving blood flow, reducing fatigue, and providing users with the ability to compute from correct positions. Brands like Symmetry Office and OFM provide some of the best and most cost effective desk risers on the market.
