How Art Can Make You More Productive at Home

Art isn’t something that’s just nice to look at. It has been scientifically proven to help boost productivity! And a productivity boost is something we could all use from time to time.
Having artwork in your home office fosters positive emotions allowing you to come up with better ideas, focus on tasks, and collaborate better.
Many workplaces strive to create an office culture that is inclusive, inspiring, and motivating. Since offices are closed and most employees are working from home right now it can be a challenge to incorporate that positive office culture into your home office space.
Thankfully, improving your productivity and recreating that sense of office culture in your own home office can be as easy as hanging some wall art!
Not sure what to hang? We think the most inspiring prints are the ones that bring back fond memories. Whether that’s a photo of you and your best friend in Bali or a picture of your little ones, choose something that will put a smile on your face every time you look at it.
Don’t believe us? Let’s look at the science:
According to Forbes, research done at Exeter University’s School of Psychology showed that people working in enriched environments (decorated with art or plants) are 17% more productive than those in spaces not decorated with art.
A collaboration between the Business Committee for the Arts and the International Association of Professional Art Advisors found that art in the workplace helps businesses address key challenges such as reducing stress, increasing creativity, and encouraging expression of opinions.
As an employer, you want your team to succeed while working from home during these times. Providing your remote working team with a wellness benefit to help them improve their home office space through wall art will create a sense of unity and teamwork within your organization.
So now that we know how art can help to increase our productivity at home, you can treat yourself to that gallery wall you’ve been dreaming of guilt-free!
