Strategically organising your desk will help you productively get more work done in the long run. Less clutter can ultimately reduce stress, and will significantly improve your mental energy. Transforming your desk into a professional and clear looking work space will allow you to clear your mind and achieve the best working results. Handy desktop tidies are a wonderful way to organise your desk. A desk top tidy will neatly store away all of your pens, rulers, erasers and more, freeing up more space for your other items. You can also get cute desktop draws and organisers, which are brilliant for storing away papers and folders.

Stunning and unique botanicals have a way of instantly freshening up a space visually and subconsciously. House plants can really heighten the senses, they’re known to boost mood and concentration levels, which make them perfect not only for the home but your work space also. Natural plants really work well, as they release moisture vapour, which increases humidity of the air around them. But if you don’t want the heavy upkeep of real plants, then artificial plants are the perfect alternative. They’re low maintenance and pest resistant, plus they will brighten up your office with their realistic appearance.
