Modern technology has made its way into almost every aspect of life; it has especially taken precedence in the work environment. Technology, while helpful, is sometimes disruptive to the cohesive office design. Using these tips, take your technology into your own hands, and dress it up to your own design!
Three Techy Tips These three fresh ideas can take your workstation from cluttered and boring to organized and artistic! Keep cords together by tying them with ribbon or utilizing products such as Cable Turtles. Keep your phone and tablet within arms reach by finding a charging station that fits the theme of your office and placing it right by the computer. If you decide that you want to keep these electronics out of the way, decorative boxes or clever designs can help them blend in with the rest of your desk. Find the system that works best for you, and liven up your office decor!
Corral your phone and tablet into a designated docking station Phones and tablets need to be readily accessible, so why not pretty up their display? Go modern with a sleek dock that also charges the device, or use one that’s more sculptural and complex for an artsy display.
Dedicate a decorative box as a charging station For those who feel that charging is better left unseen, dedicate a decorative box as a charging station. Punch a hole in the back so that you can include a power strip—just make sure there is enough ventilation so that the strip doesn’t overheat.
Disguise a tablet behind a book Pick a pretty book that is slightly larger than your tablet. Using a utility knife, carefully carve out the pages, and slide the cover around the device. Let it stand as a focal piece, or decorate with some more reference books that you use on a daily basis.
