Decorate the Walls
Bare walls are boring. Think about your interests and what you’ve seen other people do. Use it has a chance to add color and character to the room. One idea is to hang a few World Maps Posters because they’re tasteful and artistic; they’re also ideal for travelers who could mark off where they’ve been (and where they hope to explore next). Another suggestion is to hang a gallery wall of pictures. Whatever it is you choose, make it unique and vibrant. If nothing else, promise yourself you won’t leave the walls blank.
Furnish the Space
Take a look at how you’re currently working. If you’re sitting in one folding chair in the middle of the room, then it’s time to upgrade.

Extra seating is a great way to make it feel more relaxed. There’s no need to crowd the space, but fill it to the best of your ability with nice furnishings.
Improve your Décor
Remove your old décor and bring in an entirely new style. Don’t do what you’ve always done. Start fresh and enjoy the change of pace. Head to the local thrift store and find unique tables, lamps and display pieces. Bring in items from other rooms in your home and watch it all come together. Use this activity as a chance to personalize your office and add sentimental embellishments like photos.

Ask the family to help, and it’ll go faster. This is your chance to purge what’s taking up space and make it look presentable again.
