Whether you want to order for your remote-working colleagues or for customers who you know operate from their homes, we've got the perfect products to keep your brand in mind at all times, from promotional coasters to desktop plants. Read on for our simple tips for brightening up any desk - is #DeskGoals a 'thing'? It will be after you've read this...

1. Add A Splash Of Colour With Promotional Products

Firstly: chances are your desk is predominately one of two colours: black and white. As stylish as they might be from a sartorial POV, they're not exactly the most exciting colours when it comes to styling a work-space. that's just not very exciting! To combat this, consider ways your brand could help add some colour to the workspaces of colleagues and customers alike.

According to colour theorists, colour can promote a positive vibe, improve corporate culture and help establish an environment where employees will succeed. But, which colours should work best for this?

Different colours promote different emotions, so it's important to choose the right colour for you. Are you looking for a productivity boost? Then blue might be the colour for you. Blue is a soothing colour, helping calm the mind and aid concentration, it also enhances wakefulness and supports clear communication. It's no wonder blue is a popular choice in office spaces!

Some people might struggle to get their creative juices flowing when working remotely. If yours is a creative industry, and you need your team to be thinking up new ideas, choose promotional products in yellow. Yellow is energising, radiates positivity and helps lift confidence levels. Alternatively, if your colleagues are reporting feeling stressed since working from home then look to introduce some aspects of green to your desk. As green is a harmonising colour, it can help to create a sense of calm and reassurance.

2. Bring The Outdoors In With Desktop Plants

Plants are one of the easiest ways to liven up a bare workspace, giving the option to turn desks into a mini oasis! In many modern offices, you can expect to see a few common design features on display: open floor plans, bright colours, blooming greenery and maybe even an impressive selection of snacks! Gone are the days of dull grey walls and being stuck in a small cubicle - so why should a home office be any different?

Office plants are more than just a trend, with many studies over the last few years exploring and proving the benefits of having plants in your workspace. A study conducted in 2014 by researchers in the UK as well as Australia and the Netherlands examined three office environments over several months. They found that having greenery significantly increases workplace satisfaction in employees, heightened concentration and improved the perceived air quality. They also found that staff were much more productive - how's that for a great ROI?

Did you know that indoor plants act as stress relievers? Natural environments give us a sense of serenity, creating the feeling of being away from urban life. They can help make us feel more relaxed and when added to a corporate environment, can help reduce tension.

3. Up The Personalisation With Soothing Promotional Items

Although your customers might have set-up shop at home, they still might feel their workspace is lacking comfort and personalisation. Adding photos, pinning up drawings by the kids or even lighting a candle are all great ways to help add an extra touch of home comfort.

Many studies have found that adding a personal touch to your desk can improve concentration, stress levels and maintain a sense of control over your own working environment. 

Okay. Feeling inspired? Now that we've looked at the ways your customers and colleagues can brighten up their desks, let's have a run-through of the promotional products that might help make it a reality!
