Improve your office with help from Store That Canary Wharf

Store That Canary Wharf wants to know if you ever find yourself sitting at work knee deep in paperwork, with the floor no longer visible? If yes, then it’s probably time to improve your office’s lack of space.

This doesn’t always mean moving into a new space. Sometimes it just takes storing some less useful items out of the way to maximise productivity. As experts in self-storage solutions in E14, the team here at Store That Canary Wharf offer up our 10 top tips to improve your office:

  1. Ideas board

Incorporating a good old-fashioned chalk or whiteboard to display ideas, deadlines or goals is a simple yet accessible way to share information throughout the office.

  1. Lighting

Lighting alone can boost focus and lift the mood of the entire office. Opening blinds and windows can reduce fatigue, eyestrain and headaches caused by poor lighting. For those dull days why not consider investing in daylight bulbs.

  1. Clutter

A tidy office is a tidy mind. Be brutal, if it isn’t used regularly and is often placed in the corner of the room, consider moving it into self-storage. This way, you can increase the amount of space and invest in more important things for the office, such as a ball pit for the days where you need to release some stress.

  1. Paperless

More and more offices are considering going paperless, not only to reduce their carbon footprint but to also allow for all documents and files to be in one place. Thus reducing the stack of 500 documents blocking the computer screen.

  1. Decorations

Working in a ‘grey space’ with nothing on the walls and window sills can create a cold environment. Adding a few plants or greenery helps reduce the ‘office’ feel to your workspace.

  1. Relaxation

‘Chill Out’ zones are the new office kitchen. Creating a space where you can lounge on a sofa or throw your body into a beanbag allows for you and others to really relax during the short breaks (see below).

  1. Breaks

Breaks are a crucial part of the office day. Whether it’s to briefly stretch your legs or to gently scream about Tony eating your pasta salad, again!.
