Any office decorations used at work should reflect the company's culture and brand, be professional and be within budget.
Before decorating the office, take several questions into account: How much storage space does the office have? Is there enough shelving to display items? Who visits the office?
Once the basic questions are answered, evaluate the business' culture and brand. Make sure decorations are appropriate for the company's climate. A public relations firm that specializes in high-fashion events for clients would do well with more ornate accessories, whereas a financial management company may want to stick with conservative decor.
Next, make sure all office decorations are professional. Having Play-Doh on one's desk is fine for elementary school teachers, but might not convey the right image at a law firm. Frame paintings or pictures in high-quality frames that are simple yet attractive.
Finally, it is important to set a budget for all office furniture and decorations used. Although it may be tempting to skimp on the furniture, this causes more problems and higher costs in the long run. If the budget is tight, opt to purchase second hand business furniture that is in top condition, ergonomic and high in quality.
