Imagine that same feeling for your office! Follow these simple steps and let your spring fever take over your workspace.
Get rid of that after-winter-grime, you know what we are talking about. That dirt and debris leftover after the snow melts. Pick up any garbage around the outside of your office and grab a buck with soap and water, scrub that grime off of exterior doors and windows. Washing your windows will let that beautiful spring light shine through. Clean up your exterior rugs or entrance mats, or replace with new ones for the season. Your office will instantly feel freshened up from the outside in!
Moving on to the inside… plants are not only easy on the eyes, but they are easy on the air! Bring the outdoors in with some spring arrangements with colorful flowers or green plants. Keeping plants alive not your thing? That’s ok! Fake flowers and foliage also help give that look that spring has sprung.
