They say that you never would have to work a day in your life if you actually love your work. Simply put, you’re not really “working” when you enjoy what you do for a living. The same would probably go if you have a cool, comfortable and homey kind of office. You would feel less of the stress and exhaustion when you have a comfortable office you go to every day. It would either feel like you’re simply at home or some place that gives the feeling that you are very much welcome and you can always enjoy.
When you work on an office, the repetition of every day toil could get into your nerves and even when you are actually good at what you do, you might simply end up getting bored just give up your work. This could be a problem not just for you (of course since you would have no means of supporting your day-to-day expenses), but also for the company you work with (there might be some other people willing to apply for the spot you left but imagine if this keeps happening over again). So the solution is simple: redecorate.
With or without the help of an interior design, your office could be a whole lot better. Dump the plain white ceiling and walls. Explore with colors and designs. Have a theme or experiment on different ones altogether. But the most important is make it as comfortable for workers as possible. Without comfort, working would be a hard and stressful everyday task that we have to cope up with to earn money for living.
Everywhere we look, we can get inspiration. If the surroundings doesn’t give you one, people can. If both doesn’t work out, the internet is always here to support you. And with that, here are some inspirations to get you started!
On another part of your office, you can redecorate the place so it would have a more “at home” vibe. And don’t forget that bear rug to complete a cabin-ish feels.

A nice office within an office. You don’t have to worry about the noise or you need to discuss private meetings. Surely your space would be able to give you that.

The dome or the main office stays true to the theme and is also made of wood. The geometric designs makes it more artistic and still very simple.

Make your lighting unique. Here’s an example on how simple light bulbs could look much more posh; just like raindrops falling from the sky.
The simple positioning of the chairs and tables makes it easier to have more space. Of course, keeping your place immaculate is also an important key.
Office work usually happens in your chair and on your desk so keeping a fit body could be difficult. But no problem! Have something that could give your workers some workout and fun as well such as a basketball ring.
Indoor plants can effectively keep the whole place refreshing and soothing.
One of a kind furniture and lighting could immediately amp up the atmosphere of a workplace. Mixing all these together could then make your place a good spot to work in.

It’s not unusual to see some plants and little trees within the office; but a tree in the middle of the desk isn’t really what you see normally. However, this is actually a cool design, a great way to freshen the office and even a way of promoting planting more trees.
