If your office space feels a little stale or you find yourself overseeing a complete change in office decor, you'll want to keep a few things in mind. One of the most important parts of running a good office is keeping a balance between fun and professional both in the environment and in the decor. Here are a few tips to help maintain that balance.

Make sure you get plenty of light
Having a bright, open space can make your co-workers feel happier and more energetic. While sunlight is usually the cheeriest, you can still use other light sources to make the space brighter. If you have blinds and shades in your office, make sure that they're open whenever possible during the day to let in lots of sun. Simply installing a lamp on your desk can add a whole new layer of light to your workspace so that you'll feel energetic and ready to get to work every day.

Have workers decorate their own space
Keboto noted that workers are often happier when they get to change their own space. A few keepsakes on a desk can help break through the impersonal feel that workspaces can sometimes have in office settings. Make sure that your employees or co-workers are able to hang plenty of pictures of family, artwork and other personal memorabilia.

It's also a good idea to include everyone in the office in the decision-making process when it comes to redecorating. If you're thinking of bringing in new plants or installing a new set of colored glass switch plates to brighten up the office, try putting it out to a vote for those who are interested. Having everyone come together and make a decision may even help bring about more harmony in the workplace.

Make sure it's still professional
While you'll want your office to feel fun and fresh for everyone working there, remember that it's got to make a good impression when potential clients or other important people stop by for a visit, according to All Business magazine. Try making sure that everything has a clean color scheme - think earth tones or other likable colors. A few earth tone switch plates will bring out color from the walls while still feeling respectable and professional to those who may be visiting.
