The essence of creativity stems from within, but your vicinity significantly decides the outcome. Ever sit down wanting to create an excellent piece of work, but no matter how hard you try, the elusive thing that is inspiration seems to escape you continually? From writers to music directors, everyone who has ever worked to produce something has faced a block in their process at one time or another. The one thing that can make or break that imperative flow of imagination is the environment in which you are working! Your creative space should be a sanctuary for your ideas and serve as a conductor to channel your innovative passion. These tips will show you the ultimate setup to enable you on your creative journey.
The position of your room:
Is the room near a busy area of the home? Is there enough sunlight entering it, or is it being blocked by an opposite wall? The position of the room in the house has a significant impact on the creative vibes inside it. Choosing a well-lit chamber in the corner of the house away from loud noises and distraction will help one completely immerse themselves in the creational experience.
For those who find their creative juices flow best in the hours after dark, ceiling and pendant lights are essential. They come in all sizes, designs and colours, and can be chosen to suit any theme and lighting requirement. In addition to lighting up the room with a beautiful radiance, they add a stylish and fashionable look. A pendant light installed above a work station ensures you always work in a pool of light. These are must-haves to create the ambience required to spark the imagination.
Seating and Work area:
Creative work demands one to be utterly comfortable as they work, to avoid breaks in concentration due to discomfort. Here is where a proper set up for the work area comes into play. Making sure that the work station is at a suitable height and position, the seating is ergonomic, and the surroundings are arranged to facilitate best the flow of work will do wonders to one’s productivity. A comfy sofa in the corner comes in handy when taking breaks as well!
Shelving and storage:
Dedicating a wall of the room to shelving and cupboards provides for a place to store items. A clean room helps to transcend interference from clutter and assists with the mental and visual clarity needed for inspiration to strike.
Décor is the voice of any room. Giving the environment a creative aura through appropriate décor can instigate a flood of ideas. A subtle muted look will promote concentration, while people who prefer bold colours will find adding these to the décor can be inspiring in their own way.
Before you know it, with the above guidelines, you’ll have inspiration continually knocking at your door.
