Dreaming of a Workstation Makeover

If I would design my own workstation, I wanted it to be...
1. ergonomically designed from layout to interior design
2. uses daylight, but has enough tint to block the heat of the sun
3. provides a view of the city or if budget does not permit, a small zen garden will do
4. uses light colored paint
5. wide working table
6. discrete storage and wiring system
7. high ceilings
8. white or wooden tiled flooring

My current workstation is so plain and traditional. My everyday companion is a heavy wooden table where I have my LCD monitor, printer, telephone and all those scattered papers. Getting a workstation make over would always remain a dream as I am working to a non-profit organization.... a school :)  Comforts like these never become a priority. So just to perhaps satisfy my dream of finally owning my dream working niche, I searched and compiled the best workstations I have ever seen

The wide window glass panels, simple black and white theme, wide working table and the built in life size shelf, this is closer to what I call my dream work place.

I am not really a fan of color pink but I appreciate the simplicity of everything here. A working table, enough drawers, floating shelves and the hanging organizers can replace the typical bulletin board in the workplace.

A better alternative for office dividers or partitions, this style promotes more space and light can easily penetrate the  workplace.

Talking about creativity and budget! Why not use wooden crates or panels, pile them together and voila! An instant and unique workstation.

Floating wooden shelves and a splash of refreshing green paint transforms a corner to a relaxing and inviting workstation.

I always love using white paint and furniture that will later be accentuated by other colorful pieces.

White is not after all dull, boring and suited only for hospitals. It pairs well with other colorful pieces.

In case, I will become the boss :D
White, wood, pieces of greenery and provision for natural light

And if I were to choose my own desk, I wanted something unconventional and ergonomic

In case your office cannot move away with the partitions, why not make them one of a kind

And this almost took my breath away!

This unique and magnificent structure serves as the architecture studio of Selgas Cano in Madrid, Spain.

A workplace that marries nature and creativity! In case you wanted a break,

  4. What a great collection of workstations! Since I am at home, I dream of a home office space that is functional and pretty. My art studio (in a smallish loft space) needs some serious work too. Thank you for some inspiration!! :)

  5. Hi Diane, wow girl those are some brillant stations. You know me, I have to have a bit of decor so I think the third (the grey and white) one and the cute corner station are my favorites. I am already planning a craft work station for our unfinished basement. I've even bought a few things. I want it mostly black and white. What a goof I am to buy already. We haven't even started on the basement. lol!
    Hugs,
    Jann
