As Christmas approaches and 2014 draws to a close, there’s every chance that throughout the business year your office has become a little on the cluttered side. You might have tired and dated furniture that has seen better days, piles of paperwork that has been stacking up for months, or old and broken computer monitors that you know you really ought to get rid of.
So when you take the Christmas decorations down in early 2015, why not think about having a clear out and a spruce up ready for the New Year? A clean, tidy and uncluttered workspace does wonders for productivity, helping you to get more done in your place of work and motivate in your attitude. So where to start? Clearance and Clean Up office clearance Sheffield have a few tips for you..
Take a look around your office and think about what you could do to make it look tidier. Do you have lots of files stacked up on desks or on top of filing cabinets that really need to be filed away? You may have a few desk chairs that are looking shabby and could do with being replaced, or a box of lost property that’s been there since the Christmas party last year and could be taken to a charity shop.
It’s also important to think about the impression you make to possible office visitors; decent looking furniture and tidy desks are far more professional than clutter.
Sometimes a good coat of paint can make a lot of difference to an office. The walls and doors of a busy office are easily scuffed and marked, so a quick redecorate in the New Year is a great way to smarten things up. You could even go for a different shade; studies have shown that colour can profoundly affect how productive you are.
For example, blue colours are supposed to affect your mind; yellow your emotions; red your body; and green your balance. Blue is often classed as the most productive colour as it stimulates your mind and makes you more productive. If you work in a creative industry, consider yellow as it is supposed to stimulate your ego and spirits, and make you more optimistic.
It’s also worth thinking about the layout of your office. Think carefully about whether you are making good use of the space available. If you’re thinking of making some changes, try drawing up a floor plan which will give you a better idea of alternative furniture arrangements.
