Let's be honest. A cubicle might not be your idea of an inspiring work environment, but there are decorating ideas to make it a more visually appealing space. And since your workspace can have an impact on creativity and productivity, it's worth ensuring that it looks its best and serves a reflection of your design aesthetic.

"If you factor in the hours you’re awake, most people spend more time at their offices than they do in their home," says interior designer . "Decorating a cubicle can make your day more zen. Personalizing it is just like designing for your home to create a home-away-from-home feel. Whatever your look is, whether it’s the traditional floral chintz lover or the modern solid color-preferring minimalist, your work space should reflect your personality." Designer agrees. "Designing your cubical should be a conscious and concise undertaking, as your space is limited," she says. "Think about the colors and objects that inspire you and help you maintain a clear mind for productive thought."
