1. It’s all about the Light
Natural light possesses countless benefits for humans and is one of the easiest ways to transform a simple working space into a haven of peace and productivity. By privileging natural light, not only will you decrease stress and boost your immune system, you will also cut on energy costs. Our tip for maximising natural light? Set up your desk or working surface as close as possible to a window!
If you do not have enough natural light for your entire workdays, you can invest in eco-friendly alternatives. LED light bulbs consume 40% less energy than classic ones and will last for much longer. If you want, you can also purchase stylish lamps, such as this Accordion Lamp created out of natural bamboo, walnut and maple wood. You can switch around its design easily, making this a fun and eco-friendly alternative to a classic office lamp!
2. Accessorize with Second-Hand Furniture
