Do you have a home office where you spend hours and hours of your time hard at work, or a study where you enjoy relaxing with some of your favorite literature? Your surroundings play a large part in the efficiency of your work and studying. If you have control of these surroundings, make the most of them. When it comes to the general interior design of your study, be sure that this space benefits your work and concentration. You can create the perfect setting with proper lighting, greenery, and indoor fountains.
One of the main ways you can ensure a environment for concentration is by installing the proper lighting. Have multiple sources of light, and access to a window if you have the option. Many people spend their time inside all day with improper lighting and feel drained without even walking ten feet. Avoid this, and create a more vibrant setting. If you can, avoid traditional incandescent lightbulbs, and opt for compact fluorescent bulbs. They provide a different quality of light that is more similar to sunlight and proven to increase concentration.
Something that can be easily overlooked by a business person is the use of plants and greenery to enhance your workspace and work quality. There are several small plants that are great for indoor growth and desk placement. You can even opt for something small to sit in your window, or a window box to sit right outside with a beautiful display of life. There are studies that have found a correlation between the presence of a desk plant and increased levels of concentration. A small change like this can lead to a much larger improvement.
One of the best ways to create a calm and serene environment for your study or home office is by installing a fountain inside. There are many types of indoor options. Wall mounted and free standing water fountains are a great way of decorating with a purpose. You can even opt for a small desk fountain. These fountains will create a steady flowing sound that is much more beneficial than many people realize. It isn’t just the water sounds that help, but the steady white noise created from these sounds is proven to improve relaxation and concentration.
If you spend a vast majority of your time at home in your office or study, be sure that the space is designed to help your work flow smoothly. Create a scene that facilitates your work and studying. Set the scene with proper lighting, enhance the feeling with appropriate greenery, and complete the feeling the installation of an indoor fountain. Your work experience will be be tremendously improved.
