5 Tips for an Aesthetic Work Desk

For most of us, the desk is where we mostly spend our time studying, working, and even crafting! So what better place to invest in other than the work station or study corner that you most often use? When you're in a positive mood, your work productivity would naturally increase too. So stop feeling sluggish at work – It's time for a desk makeover! If you’re wondering what you need to do to get that Instagram-worthy aesthetics, read on for 5 tips on how to style your work desk.

1. Pick a theme, and commit to it

The key to an aesthetic work space is picking - and keeping - to a theme! You could go for different styles and still achieve an aesthetic desk because there’s an overall collective look, and not a single item will stick out like a sore thumb. 

2. Accessorise with trendy stationery and office supplies.

This is all part of the grand plan – trust us on this one. With your theme set in stone, all you'd have to do now is to follow it and everything will fall into place as if it was always there. If you're going for the babe boss vibes or a feminine minimalist aesthetic, check out this desk stationery collection from Kate Spade New York. Perhaps if bright happy colours suit you better, Ban.do's range of desk stationery accessories might be right up your alley!

3. Add a touch of greenery to bring life to the table.

Give your eyes a little break in between meetings and calls with some table top greenery. Not only does this help with stress relief, but it also brings life to your otherwise listless corner. While adding greens to the collection of desk accessories may be a good idea, not every one has a green thumb – So do check out these DIY craft kits to make your own desk felt succulents and mini terrariums!
4. Make use of empty wall spaces to hang some decor.

This might sound basic and unnecessary, but you'll be surprised to know that the wall space is a commonly overlooked and under utilised space – perhaps due to the fear of damaging the painted walls. One way to work around this is to use a standing peg board, or cork board to pin your posters, notes and even stationery! 
5. Organise your desk regularly for a clutter-free space.

Last but not least, pack your desk regularly. Once you make a habit of putting things back where you took them from, maintaining the standard of aesthetics wouldn't be difficult at all. Be careful not to break the momentum or you might risk finding your desk a mess!
