Office Decor – How to Personalize your Office

Many businesses can be very strict about the type of décor and remodeling projects that can be done to offices. This can make it hard for employees to personalize their offices and make them their own. Although it can be difficult, it is not impossible to find office décor that matches your style and landlord’s restrictions. There are many ways you can customize your living area to fit your needs and style.



Paint is an easy and inexpensive way to change the entire look and design of your office. Many landlords do not allow renters to paint and others may only allow white paint or other light colors. If you are interested in painting the walls in your office, talk with your boss or building owder to determine what colors can be used. You may also be able to convince the land lord to allow you to paint if you agree to paint the walls back to their original color before you leave the office building.


Framed Art & Pictures

Custom made artwork and personal photos are a great way to personalize your office and an inexpensive type of office décor. You can order photo prints online or from your local department store. Frames can be purchased from your local craft supply store and home décor stores. You can use framed art and photos to cover entire walls or hang them throughout your living area.
