An overcrowded work area, uncomfortable chair, multi-toned walls, and an influx of foot traffic can all cause distractions which make it difficult for you to focus on work assignments that you are in charge of overseeing at the warehouse you operate. If you have been preoccupied lately, make some changes to your office that could assist with prospering during working hours.
Streamline Your Furnishings And Invest In A Cushioned Seat
A desk that contains a lot of drawers, several archaic storage cabinets, and end tables that are dispersed throughout the office space may result in you holding onto documents and odds-and-ends that are not really needed.
Streamline the furnishings you own by donating pieces that are truly not needed and disposing of items that were stored inside of or on each piece. This may seem like a huge step to take, but it is necessary if you want to have a simplistic office setting that consists of the bare necessities needed to get your job done.
When sorting through items, think about how long it has been since you needed some of the documents or items in the office. This way of thinking may help you realize that you have merely been hoarding items and that the contents in or on each furnishing are no longer necessary.
Purchase a basic desk that contains one or two small drawers. A cushioned desk chair should accompany your purchase, but avoid buying a chair that can be adjusted to lay back because you may be inclined to rest in your office instead of remaining focused on your work.
Change The Walls And Add Basic Decorations
A neutral color for the walls may suit you better than the current color combination. Choose flat latex paint that is beige, grey, or taupe and add a couple coats of paint to each wall. Remove 'busy' decorations that are currently on display and replace them with a couple of potted plants, a basic art print, or a vase.
If your office isn't contained by four walls and is in the corner of the area where warehouse employees are stationed, painting the walls that surround your work area may not be of interest because it will interfere with the color scheme that is used throughout the rest of the warehouse.
If this is the case, you can create your own separate work area by installing fabric-covered wall partitions around the office furniture. By separating your work area in this manner, you will be less likely to focus on the employees who are passing by your desk throughout each day.
Let it be known that you do not want to be disrupted during normal working hours and that employees are to request an appointment if they would like to consult with you. For more information, contact your local office furniture companies.
