If you haven’t yet decked the halls in your office, it’s time to get those Christmas decorations up! With only a few days until many of us break up for the Christmas holidays, giving the office a seasonal face-lift will spread some Christmas cheer amongst employees, clients and visitors alike.
But if you’re worried that Christmas decorations will ruin your office décor, creating the wrong impression or undoing your carefully cultivated brand image – fear not! There are lots of ways you can ‘do Christmas’ and still keep your street cred! Here are some ideas from our team:
5 Christmas Decoration Ideas For Your Office
Add Some Colour This Christmas!
Office interior trends are all about colour in 2016. If you’re not planning a redesign, you can still get the look by using plenty of colourful decorations. Baubles don’t have to be in traditional seasonal colours: red, green, gold and silver; instead go for hot pinks, lime green, oranges and blues, and inject some on-trend colour into your office. Mix them up for a blast of technicolour or theme rooms and workspaces with different colour schemes.
A Minimal Christmas
For those businesses that do not want to be accused of going OTT, a minimal Christmas is what’s needed. Stick to just one or two colours and materials. For example, you could go for a natural theme and use just pine throughout your design. Or be clever with lighting and use fairy lights as a feature without the need for a tree or other decorations.
Tech Christmas Ideas
If your organisation has embraced technology then perhaps a tech-themed Christmas is for you. To start, find festive screensavers so that when staff are away from their desks they look suitably seasonal. Instead of sharing business targets on your big screen, how about a virtual log fire to create a seasonal focus in the office?
Retro Christmas Decorations
If you want to go for a retro or vintage Christmas, Gisela Graham Ltd supplies stockists around the country with a range of Christmas decorations. Alternatively ebay is a great source for retro decorations, such as these authentic glass baubles from Woolworths.
Graphic Seasonal Theme
For those businesses that would like to transform their workplace without hanging a single bauble or putting up a tree, how about using graphic decals? We’ve found a great selection of window and wall decals that can be artfully applied to create any look you want this Christmas. From cool and sophisticated, to fun and festive, these are an instant fix for a great looking office.
