If you work in a cubicle, chances are that it’s grey and dull-looking. Spending your workdays in a boring workspace can be uninspiring, especially if you have a job that requires creative thinking.

Luckily, there are many cubicle decor tricks and ideas out there to spruce up your workspace and give it a new life!

1. Get a Potted Plant or Flowers

Plants and flowers are great for cleaning the air and adding happiness to your work area. Small bouquet of tulips or carnations are budget-friendly, or get a potted plant in a nice pot for more longevity.

3. Frame Some Colourful Photos

Photographs of landscapes from your vacations or family members can bring joy to your everyday work life by helping you remember happy moments. Instead of just pinning them to the cubicle wall, try framing multiple photos so that you can make a mini-gallery.

4. Pin Your Favourite Quotes

Who doesn’t love motivational quotes? Add a few of these to your cubicle to keep you focused on your goals and activities, and to lift you up on challenging days.

5. Use Patterned Fabric For the Walls

Your grey cubicle walls don’t necessarily have to be grey. Buy fabric and use pins or velcro to cover the entire wall of the cubicle with a pattern that’s more delightful.

6. Replace Your Desk Lamp

You don’t have to settle for the fluorescent desk lamp or lighting your cubicle comes with. Adding a lamp with an interesting or colour lampshade will make your desk more welcoming and comfortable.
