Refreshing a Snack Bar and Restroom 

4 easy steps to transform your work space into a more
beautiful and functional area that you will look forward to every morning

  1. Add life with simple plants or flowers—you don't need much
  2. Freshen up the air with diffusers and candles of your choice
  3. Categorise and organise with simple office accessories (we love Muji!)
  4. Most importantly, have fun! Don’t be afraid to show off random items around the office, they have a way of adding interesting textures and colors as decorative elements! 

Snack Bar 



Messy, boring



Organised, easy to use, refreshing

Tip: Here I added height and color on the water dispenser to make the snack bar just a little bit more interesting!

Fresh, alive, clean

Tips: Your bathroom should be cared for as much as any other space! It's important that you keep it clean and welcoming to accommodate any visitor or client.
