How To Revamp Your Desk Space

Changing our home space into one that's conducive to work requires extensive revamping. You may have to move things around or get rid of them from atop the desk permanently. Here are some really cool ways to revamp your desk space using stuff you already have in your home.

Moving from an office or a school to a home-based workstation can be quite a shift. Many of us have mentally separated home and work into distinct areas, and remote working and learning have forced us to blur that line. Our workstation at school or the office is crafted to perfection, with everything in its place. Changing our home space into one that's conducive to work requires extensive revamping. You may have to move things around or get rid of them from atop the desk permanently. Here are some really cool ways to revamp your desk space using stuff you already have in your home.

Need a Pen/Pencil Holder?

In your office, there's most likely a pen or pencil holder that serves to keep all your necessary stationery close at hand. If you don't have one of those at home, the solution is as close as your kitchen. Mugs or cups make for good makeshift pencil holders. The only issue is that you're likely to mistake them for your coffee cup, so you should remain alert. Ideally, place them in the corner of your desk far away from the mugs or cups you're currently drinking from.

Stop Your Books from Falling Over

Simple bookends are easy to make with a little printed cardboard and some well-cleaned rocks from your garden. They also add a bit of natural aesthetic to your workspace. As Company Bug mentions, decor can help you be more productive in an office. Just because you're working or studying from home doesn't mean your office shouldn't remain focused. These custom bookends help you to keep it that way.

Make Sure you Set the Mood

Your working space determines your productivity. A chef using a Legacy Countertops kitchen surface will want to make something memorable each time. The same goes for if you're going to make a pleasant environment for working or studying in a home office. Use candles to set the mood for work, with added light or their scents.

Flowers Can Add Personality

Everyone knows how much flowers can spice up interior decor. With the right scents (preferably those that complement your candles), you can make a workspace that's a joy to come to every morning. Those flowers don't even have to be specially ordered. If you have a garden that produces flowers, you can head out there and get a few to enhance your desktop's looks.

Decor With Purpose

Home offices are spaces that you don't really think about when you're putting together home decor. Even so, having a well-decorated home office helps to keep your motivation up. Journalists Resource mentions that working from home requires setting boundaries to maintain your mental health. Part of those boundaries can come from ensuring your office decor helps you get and stay on track while you work. It's not impossible to be as productive while working from home as you would be at your workplace or school. All it takes is a little revamping of your surroundings.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
