As a creative person at heart, you might be delighted at the thought of re-organizing your workspace to make it purposeful, tidy and fun. Actually doing it though, can be a bit more difficult!
Whether you use your creative workspace for your business, or you often spend time on your artistic skills as a hobby, there are so many reasons to get on top of your organization and improve this space in your home.
Here is some inspiration to get you started.
- Display Your Vision Board Proudly
Manifesting your goals and dreams in the form of a vision board, and displaying it proudly in your creative workspace is a great way to showcase your personality and keep you focused on what you want to achieve.
Vision boards are not only motivating, but they serve an aesthetically pleasing purpose, and you can tailor the images to suit your room’s decor. Whether you cut out pictures from a magazine or sketch your own, you have the freedom to create a mood board that reflects all of your visions.
- Ensure the Air in Your Home is Clean
Working in a clean and healthy environment is important, especially if you’re in the same place every day. If you have any doubts about the air quality of your work space, especially if your space is in a basement, you may want to invite a professional to carry out a mold inspection or check the air for toxins. An air purifier and green plants can help with air quality, too. A combination of all of these ideas will ultimately help you to create a cleaner and greener environment to work in.
- Reduce Clutter
Clutter can not only be distracting, but it can also leave less room for your creative materials. Try to keep knick-knacks to a minimum, and opt for a clean and clear workspace wherever possible. Spending a little time clearing out your drawers, dusting off your shelves and recycling any unwanted items can help to create a calmer and more enjoyable space.
- Remove Unnecessary Distractions
When you’re in your creative workspace you don’t need any distractions to steal your focus from the tasks at hand. If you require certain technology to carry out your job or hobby, that’s absolutely fine. But, you may want to consider keeping your phone in a separate room and steer clear from installing any televisions in your workspace. You want to create a natural, calm environment that allows you to focus solely on the your creative projects.
- Rethink Your Storage Solutions
New and innovative storage solutions are everywhere, so why not look into some new ideas? Storing all of your artistic materials should be a fun process, so explore some practical and beautiful options that would work for you. From glass jars to floating shelves, you can display your work in fun and unusual ways. Consider repurposing some containers in your home that might be tucked away, such as vintage boxes for small items or file folders for paper.
- Choose Calming or Fun Shades for Decor and Accessories
The overall tones and colors in your creative workspace can have a huge impact on the way you feel when you’re in there. If you want to set a calming atmosphere, you may want to consider muted greens or lovely lilacs and lavenders as your decor colors of choice. Pastel shades can help to create a blank canvas, so that you have freedom to add your own accessories and finishing touches. On the other hand, bright, fun colors might stimulate your creativity.
Your creative workspace should be a safe haven that makes you feel comfortable, inspired and motivated to practice your skills.
If you consider each of the ideas mentioned above, you could soon have a beautiful and awe-inspiring creative space that you love!
