The Aura of Organizing

The aura a room or workspace gives off helps with organizing. If you feel good in a space, you want to make it the best possible. In designing and organizing your rooms and workspaces, here are a few elements that you can work on to get organized.


Red, orange and other related hues create an illusion of warmth and small space, which people usually do not like. So for a cooler and more spacious look, it is preferable to choose among the hues of blue to green.

While it is generally useful to have a roomy space, having such amenity may become a burden since it compromises communication among residents of the house or members of the office. Most importantly, it may command enormous amounts to purchase and maintain. Meanwhile, small spaces can be organized to create illusions of space. Furthermore, well-placed cabinets and shelves can serve various purposes such as space dividers, as decorations, and as file organizers.

A clever manipulation of lighting and home decorations is the most important element in providing a good ambience. Yellow lighting usually contributes to the coziness of a place, as well as a lot of sofas, floor cushions, candles, native ornaments, smoked glass windows, and light wooden furniture. On the other hand, white fluorescent bulbs and a lot of plastic and metals (steel chairs, synthetic decors, glass windows and Formica tabletops) make for a busy-looking office. Meanwhile, pastel colors and cartooned wallpapers provide for an innocent, child-like look perfect for relaxing.

In organizing space, especially for an office, the other elements may have to be compromised for utility. Excessive decorations are generally not advisable since they interfere with the workflow. Furniture must be limited to filing cabinets, tables, and chairs. Less is definitely more when it comes to organization and efficiency at work.
