5 ways to make your offices Instagram friendly

Pull in the likes with 5 easy tips for creating an instagrammable office There are plenty of reasons why you might want to make your work place more Instagram-friendly. Perhaps you want to foster the idea that you spend all day being creatively hardworking in an office space that’s beautiful enough to send all your followers into fits of envy. Maybe you hope that if anyone drops by will take a sneaky selfie, and post it on Insta to give you some free bragging rights and publicity for your company. Or, it could be that the photos you usually take look a little dull and ‘office-y’, and you want to mix things up. 

01: Get a background wall

One easy way to ensure you’ve got the perfect Insta-spot in your office is to create a background, or feature wall where you can snap photos. A popular background wall is made up of gold or silver painted logos, but you can also customise yours to your office. That might mean painting your studio name across the wall, or using the colours in your logo, or your logo itself, to create a block print that shouts out your company name. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, you could even paint a mural related to your job.

02: Buy some house plants

How could an Insta guide not mention the necessity of houseplants? Adding some green into your studio will not only be good for your wellbeing and workflow, but can provide a good background for Insta snaps too. Make sure you take proper care of your plants though, a wilting, yellow plant is less likely to prove popular, no matter how many filters you apply to it.

03: Hang some prints

Every self-respecting creative office should have some prints on its walls. Create a gallery wall for the ultimate background or dot these around your studio. If you haven’t got any wall space, you can always add prints to your bookcases. Which leads us on to our next point…

04: Fill your bookshelves

Apart from being, of course, great resources for your work, books can add colour and texture to your studio. You can also rearrange them in different ways – by colour or height order, for example – to switch things up. 

05: Think about lighting

Although you can sometimes fix poorly lit photos in Instagram or through other photo editing tools, your photos will definitely stand out if you get the lighting right when you take them. Experiment with different types of lighting in your office, and consider lighting when making your background wall (and of course, when deciding where to place your house plants).
